I am presently using Google Sheets or Microsoft Excel on SharePoint so that I can share stored data and allow data input with users. I need to add simpler input forms, process documentation, attachments, analytics-light and storage as well. I also would like to have mobile data input and retrieval. Retool seems to offer what I need and as there will be less than 10 users, the pricing seems affordable.

I'm looking for any recommendations of this or alternate software.

Thank you

Hey everyone, My users love Microsoft Excel, and so do I. I've been making tools for them in the form of workbooks for years, these tools usually have databases included in the spreadsheets or communicate to free APIs around the web, but now I want to distribute these tools in the form of Excel Add-ins for several reasons.

I want these Add-ins to communicate to a personal server to authorize users, read from my databases, and write to them while they're using their Excel environment. I have never built a website, so what would be a good solution for this, considering I'm new to all of these technologies? I know about the existence of Microsoft Azure, Microsoft SharePoint, and Google Sheets, but I don't know how to feel about those.

I'm a student, and I have a project to build an application (Visual analytics tool) that takes a Microsoft Excel file, cleans the data, and visualizes it. Also, the app should allow the user to filter and interact with it.

1- should I make it desktop application or web application? : I'm leaning toward (desktop)

2- D3.js OR Python?

3- better excel or CSV?

I'm a beginner Inspiration for interaction and look of the app: eventflow application.
