How is Fieldbook different from a spreadsheet?

Fieldbook is meant for tracking lists, unlike spreadsheets (which are optimized for accounting and finance). So things that are frustrating in spreadsheets, are a joy in Fieldbook:

  • You can link sheets so that it's easy to view and edit related items—such as all the tasks assigned to a person or all the contacts for a company.
  • Each row in Fieldbook can be viewed in a full-screen detail view, where you can add as much detail as needed.
  • You can easily search, sort and filter—and save searches to get back to later with one click, or to share with your team.
  • You can share with your team and work together without stepping on each other's toes.
