SeaTable is something different depending on who you ask: for project managers SeaTable is a flexible project management tool, for developers it is a bug and issue tracking system and for market researchers it is a survey software. Agencies use SeaTable as a collaboration platform and collectors as an archiving solution. SeaTable is in fact as this. And that only addresses a few of the myriad use cases.
It is clearer to say what SeaTable is from a technical perspective: SeaTable is a collaborative database application with an intuitive spreadsheet interface. Data entry is therefore simple as in a spreadsheet à la Excel, but the possibilities go far beyond those of a classic spreadsheet. As a web application, a browser is all you need to use SeaTable. No download, no programme installation, no configuration - registration takes less than 15 seconds and you are ready to go.

... organises ALL your data
SeaTable gives you all the freedom you need to organise your data. Excel only understands text, numbers and formulas. SeaTable does not have these restrictions. You can save text-based information in SeaTable just as you can images and files. Single selection fields allow clear categorisation, multiple selection fields allow quick keywording. Barcodes, geo-location data and references to people and other field types make it possible to store all data in one place. And SeaTable doesn't just offer richer format support. As a database application, SeaTable supports relations between records in different tables, opening up application possibilities not imaginable in Excel.
... displays your data as you need it
Once you have become accustomed to SeaTable's diverse analysis functions, you will not want to do without them. Easy-to-use sorting, filtering and grouping functions ensure that you always have the data you need at hand, and the statistics functions make it easy to carry out sophisticated analyses. In addition, SeaTables provides you with different view modules, such as the calendar, gallery or map view, with completely new display options to optimally support your work. For example, a first click puts the dates and phases of your event planning on a calendar, a second click shows the accompanying pictures in a gallery and a third shows the event locations on a map. You don't want to do without that any more, do you?
... makes teams even stronger
You work together and in real time on all the things you organise in SeaTable. New entries and changes are immediately displayed to every user; you and your team are always up to date. You want to make a comment on a change? Then simply leave a comment right there! This way it is always clear what you are talking about and even two months later you don't have to think about when, where and via which channel you exchanged with your colleagues.
You can share individual data records and entire tables with other users in no time at all. By assigning individual user permissions, you retain control over who can do what and who cannot. Sharing is not limited to other SeaTable users: You can also share data with external partners and thus collaborate directly.
... is an analysis and survey tool in one
You don't always have to enter data yourself. SeaTable's web form editor creates a web survey or an advanced contact form in no time. You define relevant fields, dependencies, notifications and more in the survey's graphical design mode. Once the data collection is complete, the data is analysed directly where it was saved: In SeaTable.
... you can integrate seamlessly and expand indefinitely
Turn 1 + 1 = 3 by linking SeaTable to other applications and integrating it into other solutions. Thanks to the REST API, this is no challenge.
Processes can be automated and standardised with scripts. A rapidly growing number of plugins with which you can add functions to SeaTable can be found in the SeaTable Market. But don't let this limit you. SeaTable's Realtime SDK provides you with everything you need to develop your own scripts and plugins. We are excited to see what you build for SeaTable!
