Now, a huge part of what makes Rows so unique is that every spreadsheet can be live. What does that mean? Well basically, they become little apps on the web that you can share with others to use.

In this lesson, we’ll cover how to publish your spreadsheet and share it with the world!

❇️ And done! Now you can share your spreadsheet live with anyone in the world! And don’t worry - they can’t make any changes to the formulas or format of your spreadsheet - all they can do is use the spreadsheet as you intended - like a calculator, model generator, or an input form.
