In this tutorial, you will learn how to filter columns in Google Sheets.
Once ready, we’ll get started by utilizing real-world examples to show you how to filter columns in Google Sheets.
Before we begin we will need a group of data to be used to filter columns in Google Sheets.
First, you need to have a clean and tidy group of data to work with.
To insert a filter system into the data group, select the entire data group, press Data on the top bar, and select Create a filter.
Next, we will filter the desired result to present on Google Sheets. In this example, we want to hide all the students who attended class. To do so, we will filter for N to show only those who did not attend class.
Once you are done, your Google Sheets will look like this.
That’s all there is to it. You are welcome to copy the example spreadsheet below to see how it is done. The most crucial lesson is to enjoy yourself while doing it.
