Google Sheets

Use Google Sheets as the data source for your Glide project

Google Sheets is a cloud-based spreadsheet program very similar to Excel. You can choose a spreadsheet from your Google account to serve as the data source for your Glide project.

If you created your Glide account using your work email, you must create an associated Google account to integrate Google Sheets with Glide. To learn how to create a Google account using an email type that isn’t Gmail, see Create a Google Account.
