Importing Range Data From One Google Sheet to Another

One really amazing thing about Google Sheets is how easy it grab live data from one Google Sheet and import it into another. I’m not talking about a simple copy and paste job here. I am talking about real live data. Data that, when updated in the master sheet, will be reflected in the Google Sheet that you have imported the data to.

Everything starts with the IMPORTRANGE Google Sheets function.

But before we get started on the “How to’s,” you might be wondering why you might need to import live Google Sheet data from one sheet to another.

Calculate the Total Duration of Time between two periods in Google Sheets

Calculating the duration of time between two times is a pretty common task. From measuring how long a process took, to entering the hours you put into a project, to creating a timesheet. You will find it everywhere, so working out duration is a hand skill to have in Google Sheets.

However, there are some gotchas when calculating the duration of time. So it is worth a good looking into.

To get a feel of how calculating durations work out in the wild, you can check out the video below for a great example on how I use it to build a Project Task Google Sheets workbook.

In this tutorial, we will cover how to calculate the duration of time over a single day or multiple days and sum a list of durations.

I encourage you to follow along so you can create your own template copy of the Google Sheet and do a bit of practice and experimenting on your own.

Pretty much everything in this tutorial is beginner-friendly. Don’t be afraid to give it a go.

Why I built the course

This has been a project I wanted to build for a long time. The best way to learn something is by getting hands-on and building a project.  That’s how I know I learn best.

I wanted to build a Google Sheets beginners to pro course that I wanted when I first started in the world of Google Sheets. Something with real-life examples and a set of projects that I can build and maybe even modify and reuse in the future. Something that not only gives me the how-toos but the why I should be building and designing my spreadsheets in a certain way.

Go on, check out the link to find out more about the course and try out the first 5 chapters on me. I know you are going to get a lot out of it.
