Get started with a template
All spreadsheets begin with a template—a model you can use as a starting point. Replace the template’s charts and data with your own content, and add new tables, formulas, and more.
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.
Create a chart
Illustrate your data with a 2D or interactive chart. When you make changes to the data in the table, the chart updates automatically.
Get organized with sheets
Organize 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.
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.
