Google Sheet Database Structures - Helpful Templates

Google Sheets is great for tracking things and organizing. I built a few G Sheet specific templates here and converted some of the Excel-specific trackers I had to G sheets. Beyond the general ease of shareability and security features of this spreadsheet software, it also has a much more stable dynamic array suite of functions. Mainly the 'filter' function' and 'arrayformula' that can wrap around many other If statements, Vlookups, and general addition/subtraction/multiplication/division of multiple columns.

In my opinion, the most value you are going to get out of Google Sheets is if you have a database and you want to build dashboards from that, have formulas in some of the columns of the database, and if you like a more rigid charting suite for visualizations. It is also free with a Gmail account and does most of the things that Excel does. You will see some lacking features for 'what-if' analysis and the more complex goal seek features, but there are add-ons for a lot of that.

Google Sheets is widely regarded as a versatile and powerful tool for working with databases and performing analysis for several reasons:
  • Accessibility and Collaboration: Google Sheets is a cloud-based platform that can be accessed from any device with an internet connection. This accessibility allows for seamless collaboration among multiple users in real-time. It enables teams to work together, share data, and make updates simultaneously, fostering efficient collaboration and reducing version control issues.

This makes it easy for users, even those with minimal technical skills, to navigate, input data, and perform basic calculations. The intuitive interface lowers the learning curve, making it accessible to a broad range of users.
  • Basic Database Capabilities: While Google Sheets may not be a dedicated database management system, it provides essential database functionalities. You can create tables, organize data in rows and columns, sort and filter data, apply formulas and functions, and perform basic data validation. These features enable you to structure and manage data effectively, similar to a simple database.
  • Extensive Formulas and Functions: Google Sheets offers a vast library of built-in formulas and functions that facilitate data manipulation and analysis. These include mathematical functions, statistical functions, logical functions, and more. The ability to perform complex calculations and automate tasks using formulas allows for efficient data analysis and manipulation.
  • Add-Ons and Integrations: Google Sheets supports a wide range of add-ons and integrations, which significantly enhance its capabilities. Add-ons are additional tools and extensions that extend the functionality of Google Sheets. You can integrate with other Google services like Google Forms, Google Analytics, and Google Apps Script, as well as third-party tools like Zapier and Supermetrics. These integrations enable seamless data import, export, and automation, enhancing the analysis capabilities of Google Sheets.
  • Visualization Options: Google Sheets provides various chart types and visualization options to help you present and analyze data effectively. You can create charts, graphs, and pivot tables to visualize patterns, trends, and relationships in the data. The ability to generate visual representations simplifies data analysis and enables stakeholders to grasp insights more easily.
  • Import and Export Capabilities: Google Sheets supports data import and export in multiple formats, including CSV, Excel, and PDF. This flexibility allows you to import data from various sources, such as databases, spreadsheets, and external systems, enabling comprehensive analysis. Additionally, you can export data to share it with others or integrate it with other tools for further analysis.
  • Automation and Scripting: Google Sheets offers automation capabilities through Google Apps Script, a JavaScript-based scripting language. With scripting, you can automate repetitive tasks, build custom functions, and create sophisticated workflows. This level of automation streamlines data analysis processes, saves time, and enables advanced data manipulation.
