Flatfile’s workbooks make bulk editing quick and convenient. Start simple with features like search & replace, or take it to the next level with AI transformations; simply describe how you want to modify your data. No worries if you messed up - just revert your latest changes with our automated snapshots.
Validations, transformations, and custom actions are all code-based - giving you complete control of how you want your data. Users can review, filter, and correct their data to the desired format and structure with speed and ease.
Import and export data from just about any file type, not just common ones like CSV, Excel, and JSON (even relational data). Automated extraction, mapping, validation, and transformation makes conversion a breeze. For custom requirements, you can write your own custom file plugin giving you total control.
Replace the constant back and forth of files with a shared source of truth. Users and team members can validate, correct, and import data with immediate feedback, ensuring high-quality and up-to-date data that’s available to everyone. Access control included.
The most powerful search in the history of data. Bringing together AI, natural language, SQL, and full text search, Flatfile Search allows you to instantly get to the data you want with absolutely no technical skills.
Just use plain English to describe what you're looking for - no SQL needed. Our AI engine fully understands your data and its structure, so you can filter your data with ease.
Searching designed for people who don't know what a JOIN query is. Flatfile can search across any field in your dataset including fields mirrored from other tables.
Combined with Flatfile's proprietary Flex Type ability, you can search naturally and get results that make sense, even if the data isn't valid or the correct type.
