Community Guidelines

Subset is a place for spreadsheet users across the world to host their projects—both open and closed source. It's a place where we can build upon each others work, get inspiration, find solutions to immediate needs and more.

Please read through our Terms of Service and Privacy before you begin to use Subset.

If you come across any member abusing our policies, please report it to, where we reserve the right to moderate all content, disable accounts, or other restrictions.


Spreadsheets, like software programs, should be a collaborative endeavor. The purpose of Subset is to build upon one another's work, collaborate and share ideas within our community.

  • The first rule is to be kind! Our community is all about learning and helping one another reach our goals. Therefore we need to be open to other opinions, points of views, and new ways of doing things. Spreadsheets is arguably the most horizontal software tool, and therefore there are users from all different backgrounds with different use cases, experiences, ideas, etc. In order to continue to have a thriving community that can continue to grow together we need to have a safe environment for everyone.

  • Be respectful! Behind all spreadsheets is a human being that created it. Remember to always criticize ideas and not the people behind them. There will inevitably be disagreements, but you must engage respectfully.
