More Examples#

Here we will post useful examples of what you can do with Grist, sometimes with ready-to-use templates.

  • Slicing and Dicing Credit Card Expenses: Grist offers a handy way to explore your credit card transactions quickly. American Express card members can use the ready-made template in the example.

  • Book Lists with Library and Store Look-ups: Grist’s link handling and formulas can help you with your book club, by adding automatic links to libraries, stores, review sites, and other references. The same ideas could work with Ikea furniture, food orders, whatever you like.

  • Prepare Emails using Formulas: Turn cells into links that open an email program to compose a new message, and prefill its recipients, subject, and more.

  • Preparing Invoices: Preview printable invoices side by side with your client data.

  • Tracking Payroll: Keep track of employee rates, roles, and hours conveniently, with up-to-date reliable payroll summaries, and detailed history.
