One particularly useful feature of Handsontable is its reporting and summarization capability. It enables users to quickly review the summary of the information contained in the grid’s columns. You can also apply various conditions for data retrieval. These are useful functionalities for identifying trends and tracking changes. With it, companies can make more informed decisions.
Customization of Handsontable Data Grid
Even if you do not have a background in development, you can still easily modify the Handsontable data grid by creating custom cell types or integrating it with HyperFormula. This allows for even greater customization options, which can be tailored to the specific needs of your project.
As previously mentioned, the primary goal of the Handsontable data grid is data visualization. However, it can also be used for calculations with the help of HyperFormula, another product offered by the Handsontable team.
HyperFormula is a robust library that adds spreadsheet functionality to the data grid, allowing for advanced calculations of various types, including scientific, mathematical, accounting, statistical, and engineering operations. The library includes hundreds of formulas and also supports creating custom formulas. Additionally, HyperFormula is compatible with Excel, meaning that formulas commonly used in the popular spreadsheet program can also be applied to your application.
In addition to calculations, HyperFormula can also be used for data validation, ensuring the consistency and accuracy of the data in the grid. And, like the Handsontable data grid, the grid used with HyperFormula is highly scalable and can handle large amounts of data.
