Connect your chatbot to Google Sheets
Discover the power of a chatbot integrated to Google Sheets
Spreadsheets are the central tool of information technology. Since the dawn of time, people have been trying to store data in a structured way to find out the history of wheat harvests, the number of heads in a herd or to calculate the size of a plot of land.
Computers are nothing more than very powerful calculating machines. The ancestor of your PC is a hole card machine, invented by IBM in the early 20th century to help the US government take accurate immigration measurements at Ellis Island.
The current evolution of these systems are Excel files, Sheets or otherwise known as spreadsheets. Describing their uses is almost mission impossible, so much so that these uses are infinite.
The most classic use is of course the calculation and tracking of data. You can for example use Google Sheets to follow your budget, make a business plan, make statistics and all types of forecasting calculations that you want. Google Sheets not only allows you to pull out the boxes for long-term forecasting with no effort at all, but it also allows you to create graphs that are updated in real time.
But you can also use Google Sheets to create a repository of your available products, know their stock and prices and any type of information you need.

Discover the different possible integrations between Google Sheets and Vizir
Integrating a chatbot with a Google Sheets file will allow you to talk to it in natural language, in all senses of the word.
In a first sense, you will be able to find for example the status of an invoice, the delivery time of a product or the turnover of your business unit over the last month.
You will also be able to update your excel directly from the chatbot. The status of an invoice has changed and you would like to be able to make this change directly from Slack or Microsoft Teams? The chatbot is made for that.
Finally, connecting your chatbot to Google Sheets can allow you to generate very accurate data from your conversations. For example, you can create a chatbot that takes care of taking registrations for an event. For each new entry the chatbot will add a line to the Google Sheets.

- Make an event registration chatbot, save contact information in a Google Sheets.
