Design Templates and Views
With the Spread.Sheets End-User Designer, your user can create templates and Excel files similar to the online version of Excel, with the added customizability of Spread.Sheets features. Users can also import existing Excel templates offline to load into their reporting system, or create new templates that can be exported.
Users can directly fill in their data in a form online, just like in Excel Online. Users can also download a form template, fill in their data, and then upload it back to your system.
After your user completes the form, you can save it to a file or an existing database with its own custom structure that you define.
Existing Data Sheet
When creating a sheet, you can specify the data template that corresponds to the existing data table and then import that template.
Create a New Data Table Template
You can design the data template to correspond to the database structure, including items like field names, cell types, optional values, and more.

Question: I use a Windows server, can a Linux server also be used?
Spread.Sheets and the Spread.Sheets End-User Designer are purely front-end products, requiring only a browser that supports HTML5. They do not require any servers to use.
Question: Is the Spread.Sheets End-User Designer included in the SpreadJS package?
The Spread.Sheets End-User Designer is sold separately and is not included in the SpreadJS package. You can download the SpreadJS Trial that comes packaged with the Spread.Sheets Designer runtime, which is very similar to the End-User Designer to explore its functionality.
