What is Google Sheets?

"Google Sheets is a Google's online spreadsheet service."

With Google Sheets, users can create spreadsheets in their browser, with no installed software needed. They can handle everything: budgets, schedules, and other pre-made spreadsheets, with all essential features, like built-in formulas, pivot tables, and conditional formatting.

The most powerful feature of this service is users' collaboration. Instead of emailing populated spreadsheets, this Google's product lets users share the same file, and edit it simultaneously, with real-time commenting. Members of the team can also track the file version's history, all of that without the need for saving more separate files.

Offline editing, the feature that was previously available for Docs and Slides, is possible for Google Sheets too. The Google Sheets platform is free, with the Apps for Work subscription option, which gives access to Google’s full productivity suite including Docs, Slides, and more.


Google Sheets scored 92/100 (No. 1 in Spreadsheet) in the Spreadsheet category. This is based on user satisfaction (91/100), press buzz (87/100), and other relevant information on Google Sheets gathered from around the web.

Google Sheets Review 2019

// System Administrator at Life Time Inc.

What do you like about Google Sheets?

I like that Google Sheets can run on any computer I'm on as long as I have an internet connection. The functionality is very to other popular spreadsheet programs I also use such as Microsoft Excel and OpenOffice. Though I didn't completely switch to Google Sheets, I find that it's smoother to use. I can navigate and use the various formatting tools easier. Google Sheets has all the formula capabilities I need. Another strong point is that I can smoothly save files locally or to my cloud drive.

Also, shareability is the greatest asset of the Google Drive platform. I do everything in Google Sheets. Budgets, asset tracking, bids, etc. It's an extremely versatile platform with all the wonderful features of Excel and then some. It's great to be able to see where someone else is editing—when a cell is highlighted—be able to pull data from multiple sheets into one, use drop-downs, code if/then statements, etc. There's really quite a lot you can do if you understand design and make use of the extra functions in the program.

What do you dislike about Google Sheets?

The only gripe is that Sheets is really an online-only platform. Yes, you can technically download items and keep them "offline," but offline mode has always been sterile at best, and unavailable or unreliable at most. The best features for Sheets come with access to the cloud, and every time you're editing a file and lose internet access for a minute you lose the entire ability to edit your sheet. It's not just annoying, sometimes it completely prevents you from finishing work. For any offline needs, Excel or Numbers is the better way to go. I also wish that exporting PDFs were easier. Currently, there's no way to export only the selected area across all tabs at once. You can either export the entire workbook, and all cells at that, or you can individually export the selected area on current tabs, one at a time. It's not a huge deal, but it creates more menial tasks and bloats the workflow for exporting certain workbooks.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Google Sheets solve?

It has been useful in collaborating with team members who live out of state. Anyone can sign up for different time slots in the same document in real time, or insert other useful information we can all see.

Sheets is a great spreadsheet option

// Instructional Technology Facilitator at Greenville County Schools

What do you like about Google Sheets?

Google is making large strides in the industry, and Sheets is one example of that. No more than 5 years ago, Sheets wasn't a serious contender, but now Sheets has secured a space in the industry. Here's what I love about Google Sheets:
- It's cloud-based. So no need for downloading anything or using hard drive space.
- It's linked with your Google account. So if you're using Gmail or Drive already, then Sheets is free, available and ready to go.
- It constantly saves and syncs with the cloud. I needn't worry about a computer shutdown, forgetting to save, any of that. Plus - I can access the Sheet anywhere at anytime.
- There's a nice app available for Android and Apple users. It's not extremely robust, but it gets the job done if you need to access and edit a spreadsheet on a mobile device.
- The strength, features of Sheets are growing rapidly. Initially, I would've argued that Excel was the better spreadsheet option; however, I'm more on the fence now. Sheets has an extensive amount of advanced features available.
- Sheets offers add-ons that can make the spreadsheet even more useful. I'd recommend exploring FormMule (creating a Form from a Sheet), flubaroo (for grading assistance), Yet Another Mail Merge (for mail merging), and AutoCrat (for all sorts of things). Explore the G Suite Marketplace to find lots of other ideas and options.
- In my opinion, Sheets is the easiest spreadsheeting platform that I've used to create graphs. It's quite intuitive in that it usually correctly "guesses" the type of graph I'm trying to create. This is also effortlessly accomplished with the Explore and Insert features. If I don't like the graph it creates, I can easily adjust/edit. No problem at all.
- The comment features is great for collaboration. And on the topic of collaboration, Sheets is built with collaboration in mind. It's simple and easy to have multiple users on the same spreadsheet working at once.

What do you dislike about Google Sheets?

No major concerns. All in all, Sheets is a great platform with a user-friendly look and feel. If you are familiar with spreadsheets from competitors, then making the switch is not difficult. Although Google doesn't always offer the best support (even with the G Suite training feature in the top right), there's always YouTube videos or blogs you can read that will help. As with other G Suite tools, I would also point out that you are limited by your cloud storage package, and while that can get expensive, I do believe it is competitively priced given that you have access to all of the G Suite tools.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Google Sheets solve?

Advanced data analysis, creating to do lists, building graphs/charts effortlessly, collaboration with teammates.

Basic to perform tasks of dynamic tables

// Senior Project Manager at IKEA Group

What do you like about Google Sheets?

Its operation is simple, it has the basic options to make a table correctly, you can insert elements and complements and also allows you to perform some more technical functions which is positive if the level of the dynamic table is advanced, you can complement it with the rest of tools available on the google platform and that is important.

What do you dislike about Google Sheets?

It is still very basic and limited, it is not dynamic, not very flexible and only offers basic solutions to make the boards, it does not contain commands and options that allow you to interact or link with more complex software that can increase the potential of the tool.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Google Sheets solve?

In the design department, calculation tables must be made for each project we carry out, the google sheet platform allows us to do it quickly to share the document efficiently, a task that we do frequently.

Google Sheets is a great 'do-it-together' solution!

// Marketing & Event Manager at i-team Global

What do you like about Google Sheets?

What I like the most is the easy to use setup. It works on your computer, tablet and mobile phone. When there's internet you can easily access your docs. Beside that there’s an option to share/assign documents to others (eg. Team members). This way multiple people can contribute in the same document what is a great plus and can speed things up big time!
If there's no internet you can still edit all documents and all will be automatically updated when the internet connection is restored.

What do you dislike about Google Sheets?

Google docs is at the right track but there are some point that need some attention.
Especially the most used program as ‘Word’ works fine but still not al options to edit are available in Google Sheets. Also the user interface of ‘Word’ and ‘Excel’ are at some points slightly different that the original versions of Microsoft. An other point that should have more attention is the support. There’s a lot of support info to be found online but Google does not provide support for Google Sheets by e.g. telephone or chat service.

Tracking and Management for Everyday Use

// District Staff Development Coordinator at Ramapo Indian Hills High School District

What do you like about Google Sheets?

The ability to collaborate and track work online, any time, any where. Google takes the basics of everything you know about Excel, and combines it with Google's collaborative environment. You can chat in a side window, leave comments and feedback, and attach 3rd party add-ons to increase the features of the spreadsheet.

What do you dislike about Google Sheets?

Being an online based program, when you are working with an overabundance of information on one spreadsheet if can tend to lag a little/ take extra time to load. This isn't a deal breaker, and it is quite rare that I am working with that much information that it actually starts to affect my work.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Google Sheets solve?

Combining this with Google Forms and tracking survey results, using it as a sign-up sheet, using it for project management to see what others have accomplished/finished, as a student information inventory, as a book sign-out sheet, and much more.

Easy and Always Available. Handy for Linux users.

// Co-Founder at Manhattan Residential Group

What do you like about Google Sheets?

Google sheets has been a great help when on the road or when I need to share data with a group. I use it primarily to capture data from integrations attached to Zapier.com. It's been integral in my office automation. The Google app store, if you are running on Google Apps, has a number of apps that can help you overcome the lack of advanced features in the basic Sheets. Overall, you ahve a lot of options to make it your best office solution.

What do you dislike about Google Sheets?

I do feel it could be more advanced. It's hard not to compare it to Excel. Using integration definitely helps to make it more useful. There are time when Sheets is down or cannot open a MS version with proper formatting. It's rare.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Google Sheets solve?

Data automation is my number one use for Google Sheets. With Zapier integrations and Google App store options, I am able to be for more efficient as well as build process for my contractors to ensure they do not make mistakes. By having templates, I can also make sure all the user int eh company stay on message and brand
