Today I was asked how to reorder sheets from within a Google Spreadsheet. Google Spreadsheets is one of my favorite collaboration tools. It provides the capabilities for assigning different sheets to individual students or a collaborative group. Sheets can become out of order when collaborators use one spreadsheet. No worries! It is easy to drag the sheet into an alpha or numerical order. Just click down on the sheets tab and drag to the right or left to reorder sheets.
Love when users help community question transforms into a helpful tutorial. Earlier this afternoon a Google Slides user inquired about changing bullet defaults. Changing bullet defaults can be a timesaver for both graphic designers as well as students. Sometimes it is helpful to guide others and show them how to use timesaving fun tools for designing purposes. Following is the video tutorial I ended up creating to help the Google Slides user.
We live in a diverse world where no one shoe fits all when it comes to viewing Google Calendar. One person may like their calendar set to month view. Another person may choose a week or agenda view. You can enhance a Google Calendar by opening in a day, week, month, year, schedule, or 7-day view.
Set Calendar View
- Open Google Calendar
- Click Setting Cog Wheel
- Select one of the following Views
An overlooked tool I find most useful in Google Drive is the Star Section. Place a Star on a file or folder to isolate it in the starred section. I find starring handy for doing a presentation or research. It allows a teacher or presenter to hide confidential files from their audience. Starring a folder provides easy access to research project information. Using a simple tool such as starring a file or folder can be a big timesaver.
How to Star a Folder or File
- Open Google Drive
- Click Folder or File
- Click “More Setting” tool (3 vertical dots)
- Select “Add to Starred”
In the Google Drive help forum, I noticed a question which asked about turning off Google Drive Quick Access View. What quick access view does is provides a row of the latest edited files. The row sits at the top of the drive. Its purpose is to provide an easy way to find those files a user edits last edited.
