A long title for this post, but such an easy trick, I so often have to make Google Doc spreadsheet bullet point lists in my spreadsheet, and this is the way I do it, some might say, I should list each item on a separate row, and for the majority of times thats correct, but just every so often, I want to add a Bullet point list within a single cell.
I use Google docs so often now for almost all my writing work, the sharing is so easy, I can take the web upload code Google Docs gives me and load it into Moodle, the Student interface I use as a lecturer, and the students can see my lectures so easily, and get the updates as and when I make then instantly.
I am a news hound,I like to read all I can about the world, so I have several news feeds bringing in loads of up to date articles, I quite like Zite, and I rely heavily on Google reader, and flipboard is also a cool app. but this article on Mashable has a list of excellent sites and programs that just might help your news gathering and reading list for your CPD.
I used to use Spreadsheets a lot, I ran a small sales team for a few years and collected sales data like crazy, but these days I tend to use the spreadsheets within Vectorworks, but sometimes its easier to use Google Doc‘s, so I have a few nice little tables I use for say pipe inverts and the like, I want separate from Vectorworks,
So I tend to look at Google Docs and their spreadsheet as a a simple version of the Microsoft version, although I remember using the very first spreadsheet on my first Apple,, I can’t remember the guys who first programed a spreadsheet, but what a gift to humanity. Still I digress, what this post is about is Pivot tables, because if you have a large list of info, pivot table are very useful, and Google do’s now has Pivot table, this is just another nail in the Microsoft coffin. The video below says it all realy, and passing a link to the file is soooooooo much easier than passing the file about and having to update every one !.
