Learn the essentials of Google Sheets: A beginners’ guide to mastering GoogleSheets

Discover how to use Google’s popular online spreadsheet application with this comprehensive beginner-level course for Google Sheets. This application is perfect for collaboration as it allows you and other users to work on the same spreadsheet at once and to save all your changes in real time. No more conflicting changes and lost work! Think of it as using Excel, only better.

In this Google Sheets for Beginners course, we start from the very beginning, where we teach you how to create a spreadsheet from scratch. We’ll work through rows and columns, themes, formatting, and a handful of keyboard shortcuts. We’ll also cover inserting images, checkboxes, and comments as well as using Google Drawings.

This course also discusses data cleanup and data validation, including how to create dropdown menus. We then move on to basic formulas and functions, sorting and filtering, working with multiple sheets, adding graphs and charts, and sharing your sheet.
