Google introduces tables in its cloud products

Last fall, Google's in-house incubator launched 120 new job tracking tools called Tables that compete with AirTable and can use automation to track projects more efficiently.

Google has now said that joining Google Cloud has made Tables one of its official products and is expected to be ready next year.

The Tables Project was started by Tim Gleeson, a longtime Google employee and current Managing Director of the Tables Project. He worked in the company for 10 years, before that he worked more in the technical field.

Gleeson said it was always difficult for him to keep track of projects as the team shared notes and tasks in various documents that quickly became outdated.

Instead of keeping track of project-related notes and types of tasks in various documents that need to be manually updated by team members, schedules use bots to perform some of the administrative tasks required to lead team members throughout the project.



This includes scheduling frequent email reminders when a task is late, sending a message to a chat room when a new form appears, putting a task on hold, waiting for someone else's work, or updating a task when the schedule changes.

The team sees tables as potential solutions for a variety of use cases, including project management, IT operations, customer service tracking, CRM, recruitment, product development, and more.

According to Google, the service was launched in September last year to test the applicability of the product in the market and quickly gained popularity.

Early customer feedback was positive and the team saw customers take over the service on multiple projects, another strong sign of its potential growth.

Common use cases are inventory management, health product tracking, and use in a mortgage workflow.

Google is improving its cloud products:

The team found that it is hoped that the tables will be adopted by different industries. They found that, on average, customers use tables in departments of 30 to 40 people.

Most clients switch away from manual processes and use tables instead of competing services.

Another factor that determines table entry is throughput speed, due in part to its ability to integrate with existing data warehouses and other services.

For example, tables currently support Office 365, Microsoft Access, Google Sheets, Slack, Salesforce, Box, and Dropbox.

During the trial period, you can use the tables for free and support up to 100 tables and 1000 rows.

The paid plan is expected to cost $10 per user, per month. Supports up to 1,000 tables and 10,000 rows.

The plan also includes support for larger attachments, advanced processes, history, sharing, forms, automation, and views.

When Tables joins Google Cloud, it can be integrated with AppSheet's code-free app building platform.

Users who want additional features can upgrade to the premium plan. It is also available as a standalone product for anyone who wants this experience. Google Boosts Workspace can also display panels in front of more users.

The project capitalizes on the growing interest in codeless database platforms. This applies to spreadsheets like AirTable, for example.
