Open Source Contributions 🙏#

Grist is open source. We’re grateful to the open source community for their contributions. Here are two recent highlights from a team that’s not only using Grist, but is making it better for everyone. Thank you, @LouisDelbosc!

Improved User Management with Autocomplete#

When adding users to a document, the list will now autocomplete with emails of team members. This is currently available on grist-core and will land in hosted Grist by Monday, October 3rd.

Learning Grist#

Webinar: Team Sites#

Next month we’re kicking off a series focused on Grist for Teams. This series of four videos will cover everything you need to know about team sites, workspaces, collaboration, and access rules.

In October, it’s back to team basics: team sites, workspaces, sharing, and more.

Thursday October 20th at 3:00pm US Eastern Time.


On September’s webinar, Natalie demonstrated how to use Grist’s link keys to share partial data via unique links.


Sprouts Program#

Get up and running fast with expert help. If you know what you need, but need help building it, the Sprouts program may be for you.


New Template#

Event Volunteering#

Use this template to keep track of which volunteers are working which events. Link keys with access rules grant specific access for each volunteer, allowing them to view their volunteer schedule and event details without logging into Grist.

Want to learn how we built this? Watch Natalie build it on September’s webinar.
