Share live data with Databar embedded tables

Embed tables anywhere and watch them update in real-time


by Databar

Traditionally, sharing data has been a tedious process, requiring manual updates to Excel sheets or copy-pasting data into other applications. Whether you're a sales manager sharing weekly revenue numbers with your team, or a marketing professional displaying social media metrics to your clients, having up-to-date information to present is crucial.

Now, with Databar's embedded tables, you can now create tables that update in real-time, automatically reflecting changes made to the source data with none of the hassle. In this blog, we'll teach you how to make the most of this new feature.

How to create and embed tables 

1) For this example, we scraped the Y Combinator Top 100 Companies using the Databar Chrome Extension. For instructions on how to use the extension, refer to this tutorial.

2) Send your data to Databar by clicking View Results in the top right of your extension pop-up. From there, click the Send to Databar button to be transported to our platform.

3) Now that our data is available on Databar, we can enrich this data via the Diffbot enrichment. Click the Enrichments tab on the left of your table, and click Add a new enrichment, and search for the Diffbot Enrich organisation data by name enrichment.

4) You can now choose which new columns you'd like to add to your tables. For this example, we'll add Total investment values to our table. Make sure your inputs are correct (in this case Company Name). Click Add 1 columns, and your enrichment is ready!
