For a long time, document collaboration with a spreadsheet essentially meant the end of data security. Typically you would add your data to a spreadsheet, painstakingly create multiple copies of the sheet and then email them or share them with team members for updating. Yet this method of collaborating exposed the very realistic risk of a team member unknowingly changing data or accessing sensitive data that may have been incorrectly included in their copy of the data.
When collaborating with team members or in groups, the need for data security increases further. Imagine a simple spreadsheet sent to all students of a classroom for updating their attendance. If a student could update or access the attendance records of other classmates in the spreadsheet, it would lead to a potentially risky situation.
In CollateBox, we have carefully incorporated features to overcome these very problems of spreadsheets. Data security is central to the process of sharing and collaborating inside the app. A simple example is that data views let you control how and which data you wish to expose to team mates.
Without going into a discourse on the security and its importance, I’m going to remind you that you can still get a beta invite for CollateBox and check out these features for yourself.
