About Actiondesk

At Actiondesk, we're building the future of spreadsheets. Spreadsheets are used by around 1 billion people in the world, yet were designed in the 80's and haven't been reinvented since.

Actiondesk is a full fledged spreadsheet software with 3 key features aka superpowers:

  • The ability to Import data from any data sources and having that data refreshed automatically
  • The ability to tie in data from a spreadsheet to data in another system (CRM, database etc). Whenever you make a change in the spreadsheet, it reflects in the initial data source.
  • The ability to trigger “actions” with an excel like formula on a one off basis or an automated schedule. Think daily slack messages or emails.

All of this using only excel-like formulas
