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!
Hi, Marc-Antoine Gosselin We currently only support uploading CSV's that can be used as public data or uploading the data to Google Sheets and connect to Google BigQuery. In the meantime, I'll relay your urgency to the feature request! We will reach out if we are able to implement this in a future release.
