Spreadsheet integration with OCR
Data table that scans to Microsoft Excel, Google Sheets, Numbers, or any other spreadsheet format. Possibly by way of OCR.

I have a template I'm working on that I want to scan into excell to track medical records.
This needs the ability to create a new sheet in a workbook but I'll take just the ability to scan to a sheet!
I work in a industrial Maintenance department. Excel is crucial to our business and we use every day. Working on template as well. Also, Adobe acrobat dc will not allow you to remove lines or grids. In Adobe illustrator it will not recognize the destination characters.
As a small business owner this would be so beneficial to keep track of inventory. Really hope Rocketbook develops this and soon!
Perhaps you could use the ODS file format (LibreOffice) it is open source and free. Or the Google docs sheets format. Either way would be great.

Having the ability to create log forms that can be manually filled out and then scanned to a google sheet or excel into defined cells would help with a lot of applications. When I capture test data by hand on the same form it would be great to scan this to a table and then I can have automatic tracking and capability analysis done on the equipment. Is this something that is on the works or is this simply not possible within Rocket book?
If you did this I would have my energy company (one of the largest in the world) all using rocketbook there would be several everlast notebooks on a few hundred job sites across the world
This would make your product undeniable and become essential to so many companies and hospitals. Please do this
Please. I got a pop-up saying I need to have at least 10 characters in my message. So, pretty please.
This would truly be a game changer for everyone who utilizes Google sheets or excel on a regular basis!!
If transcriptions could be saved as CSV then it can be imported to spreadsheets. Currently, I’m using the commas when I write it out, having it transcribed, putting that in a note/txt file, and then converting to a CSV file that can be imported.
If there could be an option of CVS vs TXT for the transcription, that would be a great shortcut.
That would be great for everyday excel users, like me. I really could save some time writing instead of typing and then magically have it on my screen
Please, the ability to integrate into a spreadsheet makes rocketbook a much more versatile tool for sure.

I can't believe this is still under consideration after 4 years! I have been looking for a practical way to write information in places that do not allow cameras/microphones (so tablets/laptops are not an option). The RocketBook has been "almost" perfect just because I can't find a way to easily transfer the data to a spreadsheet. This would be a great addition!
For the first page of fusion please! Project/Task/Due date/Time/ and completed. Ability to add to a running spreadsheet would be AMAZING!
Excel can transform data from pdfs. If your data is in table form, scan and save it as a pdf. In Excel, start a new sheet and do the following. It looks like a lot of steps, but it's quicker and easier than it looks.
1) Go to Data
2) On the far right click on Get Data
3) Choose from file and you'll find "From PDF"
4) Click that and it will ask for a file name
5) Once you import the file it will take you to a Navigator page where you can preview the file (there may be more than one version
6) Pick the one you prefer and transform it
7) You'll get a populated spreadsheet, but the top row will trigger a drop-down list. Just copy everything and paste it as values that you can paste into your spreadsheet.
This would be so helpful for tracking a lot of things, especially education-related. I hope it's possible at some point! 🤞🏻
Yeah. That's the feature we need. I'm a controller in a waste management corporation, and we are thinking about use rocketbook to get all de data we need in situ. But the lacking of integration with excel is making our job harder. We have to create a CSV with the text in order to automatizate the data collection

Would love to export Excel ranges into Rocketbook. Perhaps using something like Beacons, or some graphic we could paste in the four corners of the spreadsheet and then take picture of the range we want in our notes?
Great idea for the fitness trackers to virtual trainers. If able to upload to a spreadsheet , virtual checkins would be a breeze.
