Main points

  • Views let you customize how information is displayed in a sheet: all the underlying data is the same, but how and what is shown can differ.

  • Filters allow you to hide individual rows from a view depending on values in their columns.

  • You can also choose to show or hide specific columns, which allows you to focus on a smaller subset of relevant columns without changing or deleting any of the underlying data.

  • The order in which rows appear is also specific to a view. You can apply a sort so that your rows appear in a particular order, either Ascending or Descending according to the values in specific columns.

  • You can make as many views as you like and switch back and forth between them, depending on what you want to see when.
