Spreadsheet.com makes it easy to share workbooks with other workbook collaborators. Use Spreadsheet.com's built-in sharing feature, send permissioned users a link, or share your workbook publicly as a view-only workbook, or embed your workbook in another website or app.
Embed your workbook publicly is a great way to keep your audience apprised of important data, dates, or project milestones contained in your worksheets. Embedding Spreadsheet.com workbooks expands the capabilities of any website you administer and allows you to share the latest information with your audience. For instance, embed a Gantt chart of your application's updated release calendar on your application's blog, embed a workbook with your sales team's biographical and contact information on your About us page, or provide important public-facing financial documents in a spreadsheet on your investor pages.
