Staff Author Jess Stratton shows you what you need to know before watching this course, and covers any assumptions that should be met before watching.
- [Instructor] This course assumes that you've been using Google Sheets for awhile and are comfortable navigating the interface. You may or may not have taken some formal training. And if you have, some of this may be repeat information. However, I personally think it's always good to see it again, even for reinforcement or just to remind yourself that a certain feature is there for you to use. In fact, your work habits or situation may change since the last time you learned about the features, so I would even recommend watching this every year or so as a refresher. As Sheets is a Google product, I'll be using the Google Chrome browser.
And I'm signed into a demo account that we use for all our Google courses. If you want a thorough in-depth look at Google Sheets, I do recommend first watching Google Sheets Essential Training by Sally Norred. In fact, in the last chapter of this course, I'm going to show you some other ways that other Google products are designed to integrate beautifully with Google Sheets. You can also watch those courses in full if you like what you see. In fact, over here on the right in the Related Courses, you can see some other related Google products that will work in conjunction with Sheets.
That should be all you need to know. Up next, let's dive into the good stuff.
