Fortunately, GoogleSheets supports this thanks to the recently released ‘Pivot Table’ feature. A sheet with clearly written dates will be easy to group in a wide range of different time periods.

Regardless of the purpose and type of your sheet, it’s always important to have one separated column reserved exclusively for dates. For example, a default business sheet usually has a ‘Date’ column next to ‘Income’ and ‘Expenses.’ This column’s purpose is to show the time period (usually a day, week, month or year) during which income was earned or money spent.

When you ’ve selected your preferred date format and filled in the sheet with all the necessary data, toucan go ahead and make a pivot table. The ‘Pivot Table’ feature is the best way to sort and group all the data from your sheet.

It’s not only convenient for sorting dates, but also for totaling earnings for a certain period, adding percentages, and various other functions. Click the ‘Create’ option to finalize making the ‘Pivot Table.’ You ’ll see a griddles sheet with ‘Rows,’ ‘Columns,’ and ‘Values.’ written.

Sometimes it makes sense to segregate information into smaller organized chunks. Just like we organize our pages in a notebook using appropriately named tabs to quickly identify what they are for.

Similarly, in GoogleSheets, we can work with data in multiple sheets within the same spreadsheet file. At the very bottom of the GoogleSheets application user interface, we will notice the available sheet tab(s).

To add more worksheets, we just have to click on the + option in the bottom left corner. A good case of GoogleSheets file with multiple sheets that are renamed is below.

It is a spreadsheet that contains monthly sales data segregated into multiple worksheets appropriately named for the purpose. In such cases, GoogleSheets lets us horizontally scroll through the list of available worksheet tabs.

Notice the left/right triangular arrow buttons adjacent to the rightmost worksheet tab? Alternatively, click on the sheets option (the one that looks like four stacked thick lines) in the bottom left corner.

It displays the list of the available sheet names and the active worksheet has a check mark against it. While the mouse is a great tool, there are some of us who like to use the keyboard shortcuts for their ease of use and speed.

And at times like these, we may even long for the good old alt + tab keyboard combination that easily toggles between windows. While that isn’t directly helpful here, we can use it to our advantage with a simple hack.

We just have to open the same GoogleSheets file on a new window and select the sheet of our interest. The worksheet of interest now snugly fits into the place we chose for it.

Another alternative is to right-click on the sheet tab, then choose Move left/Move right option whichever is applicable. But if we need to move the sheet a long way left or right, the mouse click-drag method is faster.
