An Orca View acts as a virtual table, allowing you to combine the data from multiple sheets into one.
For instance, tracking inventory levels across multiple warehouses often require separate sheets for each location. A View makes it easy to merge the inventory data from all locations into one combined sheet.
1. Create a view
Start by adding a new View using the plus icon in the bottom left corner.
2. Select sheets to merge
All the sheets that you own will surface so you can select which ones to merge into the View.
When creating a View an additional column is added called
Sheet name to show which sheet the data originates from.
The merge operation does not consolidate rows with duplicate barcodes but inserts all rows consecutively instead. Here’s an example:
You can now share your View with others to manage or export the data from their own web accounts.
When adding users to your View, you can activate the Can Export permission as seen below. If turned off, the data will appear as read-only.
You can download the data in multiple spreadsheet formats directly from the export menu. As a Business plan user, you can also use the Live Data URL to connect to external systems like Excel or PowerBI using simple HTTP GET requests.
All URL export formats
|HTML (default when no extension provided)||.html||text/html|
|CSV (Comma-separated values)||.csv||text/plain|
|XML (Extensible Markup Language)||.xml||text/xml|
