The template chooser, showing a row of categories across the top that you can tap to filter the options.

Get started with a template

All spreadsheets begin with a template — a model you can use as a starting point. Replace the template’s graphs and data with your own content and add new tables, formulas and more.

Create a spreadsheet

A spreadsheet showing a table of tracks hiked and the distance of each track. The Cell Action menu is open, showing options to add formulas, dates, comments and filters.

Add data to a table

Enter your own data or import data from another file. You can also choose from a wide range of preset formulas, like sum or average, to add to any cell. To fit all your data, add more rows and columns.

Enter text and numbers in tables

A pie graph showing percentages of tracks completed. The Format menu is also open, showing different graph styles to choose from, as well as options to edit the series or graph references, turn the graph title or legend on or off, adjust the rotation angle of the graph, and change the graph type.

Create a graph

Illustrate your data with a 2D or interactive graph. When you make changes to the data in the table, the chart updates automatically.

Add a graph

A spreadsheet tracking hiking information, showing sheet names near the top of the screen. The Add Sheet button is on the left, followed by sheet tabs for Elevation, Hiking Schedule, Track Segments, Gear and Food.

Get organised with sheets

Organise your spreadsheet with different sheets for each type of information you want to track — income, expenses and so on. Then just tap a tab at the top of the spreadsheet to switch to the sheet you want to see.

Add sheets

The Add People screen showing a picture of the spreadsheet to be shared. Below it are buttons for ways to send the invitation, including Mail, Copy Link and More. At the bottom is the Share Options button.

Collaborate in real time

Invite others to work with you on your spreadsheet. Everyone you invite can see changes as they’re made, but you control who can edit or only view the spreadsheet.
