Google Sheets is an amazing tool that organisations everywhere are using to stay organised and to operate more efficiently.


We use Google Sheets at Task as it’s great for storing data and safely sharing spreadsheets with your teams. It's also ideal for tracking and analysing mission critical information.

That’s why we are excited to announce a recent update which now allows Task users easy access to their activity data. It only takes a few minutes to setup and once activated you can start collecting remote data on the fly - direct into Google Sheets.

We're seeing some powerful use cases particularly in the Food Bank sector. One good example is Bill Boorman who's been able to hand Task data over to the fire brigade and social services.

What's great about this release?

Simple - You can hand off data with a click of a button. Simply go to the Task editor from the desktop login and you’ll find it under the workflow section. One click and your Task account is linked to Google.

Fast - Once you complete a task from the app the data is automatically sent to Google sheets. Do a test and check it out. The data is there in seconds.

Efficient - By automating data collection you save time, both with managing your operation and reporting on the work being done.

Whether you work for a Food Bank or another nonprofit that has important field data to capture, we're seeing many use cases.
