Smart Fill feature comes to Google Sheets

In this news, we discuss the Smart Fill feature comes to Google Sheets.

Google added a new smart fill feature to Sheets that detects and learns patterns between columns to automatically complete data entry.

Similar to Smart Compose in Gmail, Smart Fill makes entering data faster and less prone to errors in Google Sheets. For example, if you want to split a column of full names into two columns (for example, first name and last name), when you start typing the first names in a column, Sheets automatically detects the pattern, generates the corresponding formula, and then fills in automatically the rest of the column.

“We hope that Smart Fill will make it easier to prepare and use data in Sheets. By adding smart new features to help automate data preparation and analysis, we hope to enable all users to harness the power of data and quickly make data-driven decisions, ”Google wrote in a blog post.

In addition, Sheets Smart Fill can also use data from Google’s Knowledge Graph, the database with billions of data on people, places and things, and for Enterprise Plus customers, it can also use directory information people in the company to automatically complete the data.

The default feature has started to be rolled out in Rapid Release domains while Scheduled Release domains will get it from November 5, 2020. Sheets Smart Fill functionality is available for Essentials, Business Starter, Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Essentials, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus, Education, Enterprise for Education, and Nonprofit Customers, and users with a personal Google Account.
