CSV fie importdirectly
I am new to Mode. Is there a way we can import csv file without connecting to any db
Hi srinivasan ramaswamy - thanks for writing in.
Currently there are a number of options that you can use to explore your own CSV data using Mode:
1) Upload to the Mode Public Warehouse - Mode hosts a free PostgreSQL database that you can upload CSV data to. Note that all data in the Mode Public Warehouse is queryable by anyone with a Mode account, so it's not a good fit for sensitive data. More info here: https://help.modeanalytics.com/articles/data-sources/#mode-public-warehouse
2) Upload to Google Sheets and connect to Google BigQuery - With some configuration you can use your CSVs uploaded to Google Sheets as the underlying data for an instance of Google BigQuery. More info here: https://help.modeanalytics.com/articles/database-specific-connection-information/#use-bigquery-to-query-google-sheets
The above options carry some limitations/complexity, so we are in the process of investigating additional ways to enhance our product to make this process easier.
Hope that helps - please do reach out to our success team via in-product chat or firstname.lastname@example.org if we can be of further assistance. Thanks!
