  • It's very easy to organize information automatically
  • It's easy to move rows and columns of information dragging and dropping
  • It's easy to format information depending on what view you need to complete the task
  • I had an issue where I wanted to add numbers in a cell and then order them by number. But when I tried to organize using the "Sort Data" function, it didn't go in numerical order. It went 1, 11, 12 instead of 1, 2, 3. That was strange. Not sure if it still does this.

  • Easier than Excel to create formulas and conditional formats, etc
  • Integrates with almost anything so can be easily used as a workaround to link two programs that aren't integrated with each other
  • Makes sharing work and updates very seamless
  • Would love to see better AI that takes more of the guesswork out of formulas, especially for newer users
  • Sometimes there are glitches with the horizontal scrollbar

  • live update- no saving required
  • comments- it allows team work in a very easy & effective way
  • unique version- sharing a doc in real time means no confusions with final versions!
  • formatting- could allow some more options taking it from Microsoft Excel
  • views- it'd be great to be able to have different views of the sheet, just clicking a button ( graphics, charts, etc)
  • comments- it could be improved if a report of comments could be exported for each document ( to keep a record)

  • Organization of data.
  • Production of graphs for better visual effects.
  • Ease of collaboration with colleagues and clients.
  • I would like to see more shortcuts for formulas. It appears that some improvements have been made as compared to competitors, but for novice users this would be beneficial.
  • There are so many tools within sheets but users are probably unfamiliar with them. It would be great if there were some automatic suggestions from the program that users could turn off if they didn't want to use them.

  • Make it so we can share files of data and update in real time
  • The various function could be more easily accessible at the top of the sheet
  • The sharing feature is a little hard to navigate to make sure the right people are able to access

  • Sharing capability in real time
  • Download in Excel, PDF or CSV
  • Pivot tables

  • Autosave
  • Multiple browser solution
  • Ability to work on Mac and Windows
  • Auto update of pivot tables
  • Pivot tables are different but could be improved upon; sort, totals, filters
  • When entering negative numbers as the first in a formula you need to remember to "+-100+25" instead of "-100+25"
  • The power of the internet of course makes it easy to find solution, but the help function is not easily available
  • Color coding changes on the cell, but there is not an easy way to click on a cell and use the selected color; like excel
