What is Google Sheets?

The application allows multiple users to work simultaneously, to edit, organise and analyse different types of information. Google Sheets is a collaborative tool where users can see colleagues’ edits as they make them and everything is saved automatically. As well as being tracked by revision history. 

It is a web-based spreadsheet application that allows users to create and edit spreadsheets with others online and in real-time. The Google product sits within a suite of other applications including Google Docs, Slides and others.
