Google Drive has received yet another really neat upgrade for users who actively use it as a replacement for Microsoft Office. Filters are a great way to ensure that you’re only looking at the data that you want to, however if one user applies a filter to a Sheet it’s implemented for all users. Temporary filtering and displaying by data set or values is a very useful addition to the function of Sheets that doesn’t permanently affect the display of other users who are accessing the spreadsheet.

A quick, practical example is showing only incomplete tasks in a multiple task situation for my home SES unit, which gives us a quick and simple way of knowing what jobs we have in total, completed tasks, tasks in progress and tasks complete.

Have you adopted Google Drive and its various functions for your daily life, or do you use another cloud based office application?
