Tell Better Stories with Connectors

Diagramming helps us make sense of how something complicated works.

We draw lines to communicate context and logic flow. Yet there's no easy way to do this with a spreadsheet, one of the most complicated things we deal with on a daily basis.

Drawing lines can answer the most common spreadsheet questions. Where is the data coming from? Why do these numbers change when I change this cell? Where are the inputs to this model? A single connection between two blocks can make everything clear.

This is one of the most obvious reasons for putting a spreadsheet on a canvas, so we felt we had to build it. There's a lot more to do here, but a simple connection is our first step. We're excited to see how you use it, and where you want us to take it.

How it works: Click and drag from the blue connector to another block and a connector will be created. If you want to delete it, just click and press the trash icon or hit the delete key.

Other fixes and improvements

  • Zoom wheel on windows: We pushed a fix for Windows users, where the zoom wheel was not behaving as expected. Zooming with the wheel should be at more normal increments.
  • Column drag snapping: Adding new columns on a grid via dragging now snaps to make it more predictable when new columns are created, and we’ve reduced the latency between the mouse and grid while dragging.
