Powerful Tool Aids in Collaborating and Organizing

4.0 last month New

Comments: I started using it several years ago just as a data entry spreadsheet. Since then, I've grown my skills in data validation and conditional formatting to make tracking and using information easier.

Pros:

I can manage a lot of student data before students are accepted to my campus and put into our SIS. I can share this data with different departments and administrators to help them perform their jobs.

Cons:

I wish Sheets were capable of merging mail like Mircosoft Office.

A Million Times Better Than Excel

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: Read above. I adore google sheets. It's the best program I have ever used.

Pros:

Google sheets is better at collaboration and sharing, is a lot more user friendly, and is more intuitive than Excel has ever been or will be for the foreseeable future. The last time I tried to use the shoddy online sharing version of Microsoft, it made you reload the spreadsheet a number of times if more than one person was using it, which led to a ton of hassle and lost work. That has NEVER happened with google sheets. Google has all the functionality and formulas that excel has, but cell sizing, customization, collaboration, and user interface are all exceptionally better. Additionally, you can reference cells from other sheets in real time, and run code to automatically create docs and pdfs with Apps Script. Graphing is better and more intuitive than excel. Conditional formatting is easier to apply and manage. Data sorting is easier. Mail Merge makes emailing leads and customers a breeze. Just everything is better, and it's a fraction of the cost, if not just straight free.

Cons:

I literally can't think of anything. I use it every day, and they are constantly coming up with new additions to compare to any functions excel has that they don't yet.
