Great collaboration tool to collate and share data

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: Really useful for dropping data into, and checking/editing on the fly from mobile, sharing results or sheets with colleagues

Pros:

Editing with collaborators and sharing results, even at the same moment. We also import Google Forms data and integrate with Zapier to create docs and pdfs,

Cons:

Every now and then, there's something you can do in excel that sheets won't do, but this happens way less often now. Lots of new functionality

A Million Times Better Than Excel

5.0 2 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.

Very flexible app for teamwork

5.0 4 months ago

Comments: Overall, I still prefer it because of the flexibility I get from working with it. It's free and easily accessible - after all, who doesn't like freebies?

Pros:

Google Spreadsheets significantly reduces a lot of stress switching between desktop and Chrome browsers during work- We use it all the time for contact listing and management. For me, it's an impeccable app because it's cloud-based. I can easily perform my daily copy and paste without hassles. It's not perfect, however, it's better than my old days excel. Our team works with it a lot because it lets us easily share files among ourselves, collaborate on particular projects, and synch our workflow seamlessly. No need to install any resource-consuming app on my desktop, no need to regularly do "CRTL + S" to save my work - no more of this stress.

Cons:

It's a little limited in features. Could be very hard to use formulae and do my habitual formatting like I used to do in Excel.

Google Sheets - An Essential Tool

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: Google Sheets has been an incredible tool for our organization. Especially through the pandemic quarantine, it enabled us to provide data entry options to staff who no longer had access to our intranet. In addition, it was able to create good looking reports from that data, aided by features like Conditional Formatting.

Pros:

I love Google Sheets for the ease of use, excellent collaboration tools, and for all of the readily available resources and documentation out there.

Cons:

Sometimes, when you have a larger spreadsheet, and multiple people accessing it, you can get some serious slow downs.
