Zapier and Glue Combine to Make Excel Fly
Do you spend a lot of time working with Excel files stored locally or in SharePoint, and want to enhance your workflow?
Could you save time by automating tasks and avoiding copy and paste between apps?
Install Glue for Zapier
What are the advantages of using Glue Excel?
Unlike using Excel Online, working on your desktop allows you to exploit the full functionality of Excel, with the ability to:
- Work with files on the go, utilizing offline access across multiple devices
- Work with your sheets wherever they are stored and access protected files
- Run macros
- Add XML functions
- Use digital signatures
- Set up data validation
How does it work?
Glue Excel is Glue42’s connector on Zapier that allows you to build zaps to connect your applications to Excel.
In this example we use the connector to inject data from Google Forms into a row in an Excel workbook.
Step 1. Zapier
The user has set up a zap integrating Google Forms and Excel on the desktop.
Step 2. Google Forms
The user enters their response in a form.
Step 3. Excel with Glue Excel add-in installed
The data entered in the form is inserted into a row in Excel.
The user makes an entry into Google Forms and, when the zap runs, the data is seamlessly entered into Glue-enabled Excel, appearing as a new row in the application. You can also build zaps that move data from Excel into your application.
Use Glue Excel on Zapier to optimize working with Excel and get more done.
Install the Excel add-in and start making real-time zaps in Zapier between Glue Excel and 650+ more applications available on the platform.

Zapier is a popular workflow automation tool that allows users to connect web applications and configure tasks that will take place in the background.
Users of the platform can set up ‘zaps’ to send data between their apps.
The combined power of GLUE and Zapier means that zaps can now work between desktop and web apps, as well as enabling users to set up real-time integrations.
