Google on Tuesday launched a new work tracking tool, Tables, designed to help teams track work, automate tasks and collaborate better.

Tables uses bots to trigger emails, update status and send weekly reports. The automation process can also help schedule recurring email reminders when tasks are overdue, or move a task to someone else’s work queue when the status is changed.

With Google integration, users will be able to import data from Sheets, share data using Groups, assign tasks via Google contacts, ping teammates in Chat, and collect data or customer response through customisable forms.
