In 2018, how we use và work with apps is totally different than it was five years ago. Personally, I find that I now tải về fewer and fewer apps and use more browser-based tools lớn get my work done.

Google innovated by taking this concept lớn the browser with Docs so that you can use them anywhere you go. The Docs suite automatically keeps your files backed up & makes it easy for everyone to lớn collaborate.

Why Use Spreadsheets?

You may wonder, is Google Sheets lượt thích Excel? The answer is: not exactly.

But before we talk about features & tools that are specific khổng lồ Sheets, let"s start off by highlighting why you should consider using a spreadsheet at all. I"m a big proponent that more people should be using spreadsheets to lớn organize and manage their lives.

When you need lớn take down a note or start organizing a project, where do you vày it? Many people might open a blank document in Google Docs or Microsoft Word, for example. The blank slate is a great way khổng lồ start scribbling ideas down.

To me, a spreadsheet can vày that as well, but with plenty of added features. If you start tracking anything that includes numbers & need khổng lồ vị basic math, a spreadsheet is always going lớn be a better choice for working with information. You can use columns & rows to lớn organize content on the fly as well.

I find it easier khổng lồ use a spreadsheet than other apps like Docs or Word to lớn plan my work schedule out, thanks to lớn the structured format of rows & columns.

Because you can use formulas and functions on the data you"ve sầu typed, a spreadsheet can help you understvà or transkhung data. In the last few months, here are a few things I"ve used spreadsheets for in my own personal life:

Keywording my digital images, tracking the progress of each year"s photo libraryTracking my monthly budget và savings goalsPlanning new content that I write for Tuts+, web4_setting milestones and goals lớn kiểm tra off progress as it is completed

Besides the fact that I work heavily with spreadsheets in my day job, they"ve sầu got a place in everyday life. Think about a spreadsheet the next time you"re starting up a project or initiative. 

Why Use Google Sheets?

What are Google Sheets, & why should you consider using them?

Even if you want lớn use spreadsheets, you might be wondering how does Google Sheets work? There"s plenty of good competition in Microsoft"s Excel and Apple"s Numbers apps. Both have also implemented versions that work in the web browser.

Even though Sheets now has other browser-based competition, I still think that it"s the leading choice for simple spreadsheets. It"s lightweight & easy lớn get started.

Excel has every possible feature you could need in a spreadsheet, but that brings complexity with it. Apple Numbers is easy khổng lồ use, but the way that some features work is counterintuitive, và it doesn"t properly support other spreadsheet formats.

Don"t miss the fact that Sheets has some quality features that mix it apart from the other choices. Let"s look at the features that make Sheets worth considering as your spreadsheet tiện ích of choice.

5 Features of Google Sheets Worth Checking Out

With so many choices for spreadsheet apps, why is Google Sheets the one that you should turn to? 

In short, I think that Google Sheets shines because it"s both free and easy-to-use. It only takes a Google account lớn log in & start building a Google Docs spreadsheet. It"s hard lớn compete with free, and although other apps have free elements, Sheets is totally không tính phí to lớn use.

But don"t think of Sheets as a shoestring-budget replacement for Microsoft Excel. It has plenty of features that are implemented just as well as Excel and even a few features that work better in the browser. Let"s look at five sầu features of Google Sheets that make it worth using.

1. Easy Input Form Integration

Have sầu you ever needed to lớn get feedbachồng or input from a visitor khổng lồ your website? Sheets offers an easy way khổng lồ do that & organize the responses.

Whether you"re taking lunch orders from your team at work or getting details from a new client, Google makes it easy lớn take đầu vào from a size and put it directly inlớn a Google Docs spreadsheet. Instead of receiving this information via gmail or text và having lớn re-type it and reformat it.

With an đầu vào size, you can phối up questions, choices, & text boxes for visitors to fill out. When the web4_user fills out their answers, that data will automatically be logged and captured into your Google Sheet for Review.

To get started with this feature, jump into lớn a Google Docs spreadsheet, và browse to Insert > Form to lớn set up a new đầu vào khung. Then, you can use the wizard lớn add questions to the khung as you can see in the screenshot below.

With Google Sheets, you can use an đầu vào khung to grab responses from a visitor or client & insert that data seamlessly inkhổng lồ the spreadsheet.

Cheông chồng out the tutorial below for a guide that will help you implement a khung that prints results directly to lớn your Google Sheet:

2. Connect Spreadsheets Together

A classic example of this is the ability to grab data from other spreadsheets. Using features lượt thích =IMPORTRANGE makes it possible lớn go & get data from totally separate workbooks.

Make sure khổng lồ read the tutorial below khổng lồ walk through using multiple spreadsheets in sync và pull data baông chồng and forth.

3. Learn While You Use the Product

Even though I love spreadsheets, I can see why people are intimidated by them. While they"re easy lớn get started with, it"s the formulas & functions that can feel lượt thích a lot khổng lồ learn.

This brings me khổng lồ another one of my favorite features of Google Sheets: the documentation that lives right inside of the tiện ích. As you start typing a function name, you"ll get a really helpful drop-down option that helps you use the function, as you can see below.


*

As you start to type a function, you"ll see information that helps you learn to apply the function.

This includes examples of how to apply each function. This "documentation on the fly" approach is one of the reasons that I think Sheets is perfect for overcoming the spreadsheet learning curve sầu.

4. Google Sheets Add-Ons

Google has taken a pretty open approach to lớn developing Sheets, welcoming add-ons from other developers to lớn enhance what Sheets can bởi natively.

I think of add-ons in two main categories:

Pure add-ons that add extra features và functionality to Google SheetsConnectivity tools lượt thích Zapier & IFTTT that help you link up Sheets lớn practically any other service

An example of a pure add-on is AppStoreMetrix, an add-on that you can use lớn traông xã your app"s performance in major phầm mềm stores like Google Play or Apple"s App Store. Instead of going into those dashboards & copying pasting data khổng lồ a Google Sheets spreadsheet, use AppStoreMetrix to connect the two.

On the other h&, you"ve got services lượt thích Zapier and IFTTT. These are services that exist for one reason: lớn connect things together! For example, Twitter & Sheets don"t work together on their own, so you need an tiện ích that sits in the middle. You could use one of those services lớn take tweets and automatically insert them into a spreadsheet.

Luckily, we"ve got a tutorial that can help you phối that up. Chechồng it out lớn learn more about connecting Google Sheets to a variety of services.

5. The Best Support for Collaboration

More than ever, the projects & work that we take on requires collaboration with others. As we rely on others more in our work, we need ways khổng lồ bring them inkhổng lồ our documents & work seamlessly together.

This is another feature where other apps have sầu tried, but Google Sheets leads the way. Simply put, it has the best implementation for inviting others to lớn work with you on a Google Sheets spreadsheet. It"s the easiest way to lớn invite other web4_users to lớn work on (or just view) a spreadsheet that you"ve been working on.

With Sheets, you can create public URL"s to let anyone view a spreadsheet, or invite specific collaborators. Launch into the sharing menu at any time by clicking on the Share button in the upper right corner.

Clichồng the Share button in the upper right corner lớn start inviting other collaborators lớn your Google Sheet.

Where to Go From Here

Once you"re on Drive, you can cliông xã on New & choose khổng lồ create a new Sheet easily. Start typing data inkhổng lồ the spreadsheet, & I think you"ll quickly see that a spreadsheet can be a great way to lớn log and organize data.


Create a new Google Sheet from the Drive sầu homepage by clicking New > Google Sheets > Blank spreadsheet.

Another option is khổng lồ create a new spreadsheet based on a không lấy phí template that can help you see the usefulness of Google Sheets.
