The Google Sheets team seem to come out with more and more great tools to help us do more, help us think creatively about how we display our data and improve our efficiency.
On the wave of machine learning, it seems that the Google Sheets devs are making our lives just that little bit easier with the Explore Tool.
You can find the explore tool down the bottom right of your Google Sheets. The tool strives to do a number of things:
- Bridge the gap, and considerable learning curve, by providing some natural language support for asking questions about your data in Google Sheets.
- Create a constantly improving list of styling, chart and pivot table suggestions that you can simply click an add to your own project.
- Provide inspiration for you to think about how to best present your data in a clear and informative way.
