How to Convert a Spreadsheet to New Google Sheets
Since the new version of Google Sheets was released we’ve had a lot of fun trying out all the new features. The downside is that if you really love one of the new tools, you’re limited to using them for only newly created Sheets.

While you can’t automatically convert an existing Spreadsheet into the New Google Sheets, there is a really easy workaround that takes no time at all. Hopefully Google will allow us to convert all of our Spreadsheets at some point, but in the mean time this should help out immensely.

To convert your Spreadsheets:

1. Open the spreadsheet you would like to convert
2. Select ‘Download as’ from the File tab
3. Chose the Microsoft Excel filetype (doesn’t matter if you have an Excel account)
4. Find the downloaded file and upload it back into Google Drive
5. Make sure the Excel file is converting to the Google Sheets format
6. Don’t forget to share with all your collaborators from the last file!

Update to Gmail makes it even easier to share your photos
For the vast majority of us, our phone has become the one device we use to take photos. Since we always have our phones with us, we’re taking more photos than ever before. This is great for convenience, but sometimes we can lose track of what photos we’ve taken. If you use Google’s Auto-Backup feature, a recent update allows you to quickly and easily share those photos via Gmail on the web.

A brand new ‘Insert Photo’ button is rolling out today for Gmail, offering yet another option for sharing photos with the people that are important to you. The best part about this update is that after enabling Auto-Backup, no other actions are required. Every time your photos are backed up, they’ll also be available to share through Gmail.

Google Forms Update - Randomize answer options
This week the Google Drive team announced a great update to Google Forms, allowing you to randomize answer options for a number of different question types. If you’ve been paying attention, Google has released a bunch of of updates to Forms in the past year, taking it from an extremely limited survey tool to a pretty comprehensive option. It still doesn’t serve all needs as of yet, but these recent changes are much appreciated.

Randomizing the order of answers is great because it can remove some of the inherent bias that comes with a survey. Responders tend to choose the first option they are presented, so randomizing the order can help to get a more accurate depiction of how your survey takers feel.

If you want your survey takers to see answer options in a randomized order, simply click on the ‘Advanced settings’ link inside the question field and select ‘Shuffle option order’.
