Input Tool - read Google Drive Docs spreadsheets

The Input Tool reads Excel however many dashboards require multiple people to update a spreadsheet. Excel is too much of a hassle to share and update. Being able to read directly from a Google Spreadsheet would allow easy multiuser access to updating spreadsheets for dashboards.

Please add Google Spreadsheets to be an option in the Input Tool.

I support that.  It would be a very userful feature.

 Hi all,

 

This feature is currently being worked on and we hope to have it out in the next major release.

 

Thanks,

Great news!

 

Can you also consider adding "calendar" inputs ? Calendar events are used as an input for many applications today in business and doing it manually takes time. a native input function will fasten it a lot.

 

Thanks!

In the meantime does anyone have a workaround that can login to google sheets, download as Excel and process in Alteryx via the Alteryx Download tool?

There is a solution. Search the Alteryx apps for Google Spreadsheet. I'm
using one posted by Grazitti.
