Overview

SheetWhiz brings Trace Precedents, Trace Dependents, Excel shortcuts, and format cycling (similar to Macabacus) to Google Sheets

➤ Excel Shortcuts on Google Sheets Love your Excel shortcuts but can’t use them in Sheets? Now you can! We brought the most frequently used shortcuts to Sheets so you no longer need to click around Sheets to accomplish what you would’ve been able to do with a couple keystrokes in Excel. Not an Excel junkie? That’s okay too! We’ve defaulted these shortcuts to native Excel, but with SheetWhiz you’re able to customize formatting shortcuts to whatever works best for you. Just click on the shortcut key to modify it Excel shortcuts are supported on both Mac and PC. ALT is replaced with Option on a Mac. CTRL on a PC maps to Control on a Mac (not Command) • For shortcuts starting with ALT, press and release all keys in the order listed • For shortcuts starting with CTRL, press all keys in the order listed and hold down until all keys have been pressed ➤ Trace Precedents on Google Sheets: Get Your Formulas Right • See all the cells referenced in your formula in one window • Quickly jump to every precedent cell using the up / down arrow keys • Make spreadsheet edits without having to close the trace precedents window • Dive a layer deeper and view the precedents of the precedents cells from the same window without having to rerun the tool. The right arrow key opens and left arrow key closes each layer • Close the window by hitting "Esc." Never need to touch your mouse! • Similar to the tracing precedents tools seen in plug-ins like Macabacus, Arixcel, Factset, and S&P Capital IQ on Excel ➤ Trace Dependents on Google Sheets: Modify Your Sheet with Confidence • See all the cells that reference the cell that you’re on in one window • Navigate to every dependent cell using the up / down arrow keys • We've optimized the tool for speed, and if there is a time-out due to the complexity of the spreadsheet, we'll let you know and return anything that we've already found • Close the window by hitting "Esc." Never need to touch your mouse! • Similar to the trace dependents tools seen in plug-ins like Macabacus, Arixcel, Factset, and S&P Capital IQ ➤ Format Cycling: Be Faster on Google Sheets than Native Excel! Tired of having to reformat negative numbers as (1) versus the Google Sheet default of -1.00? Need to color code numbers (e.g., Blue = Hard Code, Green = Link, Black = Formula)? Have company colors that you need to use but always need to import them into a Sheet? Use our format cycles that allow you to quickly flip through number formats, font colors, and cell fills that you define and keep your formatting consistent in every analysis you do ➤ Export Selection as Image (Beta): Keep Your Cell Formatting When Exporting to Slides or Docs! Ever need to export your analysis into Google Slides or Google Docs? Now you can quickly take a screenshot of your selection by hitting Ctrl + Shift + C. We are working on allowing the image to be updated once it has been pasted - stay tuned! Our Full List of Customizable Shortcuts: • Trace Precedents • Trace Dependents • Export Selection as Image (Beta) • Insert & Delete Columns • All Border Shortcuts (Remove, Bottom, Top, Left, Right, Outside, All, Inner, Horizontal, Vertical) • Auto-Fit Column Width • Auto-Fit Row Height • Set Column Width • Set Row Height • Align Center, Left, Right, Top Middle, Bottom • Increase & Reduce Decimals • Add & Remove Filters • Paste Special (Formula, Format, Value, Transposed, Column Width Only, All Except Borders) • Show / Hide Gridlines • Increase / Decrease Font Size • Set Font Size • Set Font • Freeze / Unfreeze Rows & Columns (including together at the same time!) • Merge / Unmerge • General Number Cycle • Percent Cycle • Local Currency Cycle • Multiples Cycle • Font Color Cycle • Cell Fill Cycle When you install SheetWhiz, you’ll automatically be enrolled in our 21-day free trial of our Pro plan. After the trial is over, you’ll automatically be converted to our Free plan, which includes all the key native Excel formatting shortcuts, with the option to upgrade if desired Finally, we know data privacy matters to you. There is no mechanism at SheetWhiz for us to see, edit, create, delete, or store any of the values in your spreadsheets or Google Drive files. You can view our Privacy Policy at https://www.sheetwhiz.com/privacy-policy and learn about our security controls and architecture by reading our Security Policy at https://www.sheetwhiz.com/security — About SheetWhiz: We’re a small team based in San Francisco united by the pain of adopting Google Sheets after years of using Excel. Being forced to use Sheets by our respective companies, we experienced firsthand Sheets’s lack of tools & functions as well as its unintuitive shortcuts. We estimate that we lost about ~40% of our spreadsheet productivity moving from Excel to Sheets….and so we decided to do something about it. Our goal is to enable our users to be more productive in Sheets than they are in Excel Learn more about us and our products at www.SheetWhiz.com.

As a big data cruncher at work and for my side projects, I've really come to rely on this tool. Working without sheetwhiz would be like riding a bike without pedals at this point.

This is a must-have extension for G Sheets. Huge fan of the ability to cycle formats. Number and font cycles bring back some of the MS Excel power-user features back (e.g., (1) vs. -1 and zero's represented by a “-“ vs. "0", blue = hardcode, green = links, black = formula, among many other great features). Trace precedents/dependents are incredible - It's nearly impossible to do anything remotely productive in Sheets w/o this. Really seamless and saves so many unnecessary clicks and time!
