How to allow a use to update several (a hundred?) rows

Anyone have ideas about how to accommodate larger scale updates of a set of rows in a sheet, or creation of new rows in a sheet? The process needs to be tightly controlled, but the users will be more familiar with Excel or an equivalent spreadsheet.

    Hi @Dale Murphy

    I hope you're well and safe!

    Here's a possible workaround or workarounds

    • Report
    • WorkApps
    • Dynamic View

    The best option depends on if they have access to the sheet data or not.

    Would any of those options work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!

    Andree, a report is a possible solution, except for the adding of new rows. (I also have issues with the filtering functionality of "Current User" which should be useful for restricting the range of rows a given person sees. )

    WorkApps isn't on the table yet as an option.

    DynamicView seems the best choice, although I don't know if it allows row creation either. (And, the company hasn't made that investment yet!)
