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 91/100 (No. 1 in Spreadsheet) in the Spreadsheet category. This is based on user satisfaction (86/100), press buzz (87/100), and other relevant information on Google Sheets gathered from around the web.

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
