Pros
The fact it's free is amazing. It's a great choice for personal or small business or non-profits.
I love this it's free, easy to use, comparable to Excel, and accessible on multiple devices. I use it mainly for my budget, which has not only helped me save a lot of money but plan for the future.
I like it because It's % 100 Free app from google and it's very easy to use with a clean and useful user interface. I like how I can create many sheets in one project and use other sheets format.
Cons
When downloading to a Word document on your laptop, there is often formatting error and glitches which can be annoying.
Google Sheets suffers from severe slowdowns when working with a few hundred rows of data. Don’t even bother if there are complex equations within those rows.
It can be frustrating when there's no information online about troubleshooting some formula errors.

very good for being free

Reviewed 3 years ago

Google Sheets transformed the way I work collaboratively, moving much of my work from the classic spreadsheets to the free, collaborative online version of G-Sheets. But still, for convenience and ease of use, I have some of my spreadsheets in Excel (synchronized with Google Drive, but that functionality is for a separate review).

Pros

The application has several positive aspects, but the first to highlight is that it is free! The comparison always arises between this app and Excel. Google Sheets is more limited than the latter, but it has enough functions to replace Microsoft in low-medium complexity tasks. Something that stands out with respect to the desktop versions of Excel is the possibility of sharing the document and working it between several people simultaneously remotely.

Cons

It does not carry the same functionalities or they are not implemented in the same way as in Excel. And let's face it, most of the people who use this application previously used Microsoft on its desktop version. Adapting to tasks other than the simplest requires some work. It is also more limited in terms of functionalities.

Google sheets is a flexible and powerful data analysis tool

Reviewed a month ago

Overall google sheets is an inexpensive but very powerful tool. Comparable with the more commercial spreadsheets tools out there

Pros

The ability to use pivot tables to summarise and analyse data

Cons

Not always the "prettiest" tool for presenting data to others. Sometimes looks a bit old fashioned

Easy Tool for Analysis and Charts

Reviewed 4 years ago

Using Google Sheets has helped me manage my list of new and existing product skus for marketing optimization and analysis purposes. I have been able to dig deeper into why certain marketing campaigns or tactics perform better than the others for specific products, categories or customers. So, I can spend more money on tactics which improve my product conversions and ROI while reducing my spend on those tactics which are driving lower conversions and profits. I have been able to optimize my paid media spend and sku list with lower investments in software. So, my business has become more profitable.

Pros

I use Google Sheets tool to collect all item skus I sell on my e-commerce website. So, I can concatenate them as one single string and apply as a filter in Google Analytics product performance report. I then run the report in Google Analytics by applying segment of specific email or social campaign and export it in Google Sheets format to pull a visual trend on sales over time. This strategy helps...

Cons

Google Sheets tool has limited charting or data visualization capabilities when compared to Microsoft Excel. For example: when I try to create a stacked column chart using Google Sheets, it doesn't look that professional or easy to read. The copy tab feature can also be improved. Currently, I can copy a specific tab from one sheet to the next but it includes additional text 'copy of' or something along with the original tab name. So, I have the delete that additional text every time I make a copy. Microsoft Excel doesn't include that additional text. Finally, converting an Excel file with multiple tabs into a Google Sheet is not that simple. It is not easy to convert a specific tab and the whole file has to be converted.
