Google sheet tips, short cuts, etc
- To change the view and only see a certain condition Click on (Data) then (Filter views) then choose the one you want from the choices on the far right. Using the
Filteroption instead of the
Filter Viewswill affect everyone's view.
DATA FILTER VIEW FOR SPECIFIC STATE (This will not affect the view of others)
- You will need to do the following steps
- Data->Filter Views -> Closure By State (View)
- click the gear icon in Data Filter View
- click Duplicate. This should make a copy of the Data View
- Change the name of from "Closure By State) to the state(s) you want to see (ie NC Closures) as name<>. This will be in the upper left hand corner above the column letters.
- Go to cell I3 and click the filter icon.
- Select the state you want to filter. Deselect others as necessary.
- This will now create the data filter view for that particular state.
- This is the Permalink to the closure with the layers stripped out. (Please do not edit anything in this column)
UPDATING TIME CHECKED -
- Updating the time checked in Column H "LAST CHECKED TIME" is as simple as changing the name (Has to be a name change) in Column G "LAST CHECKED BY" or typing something in Column E (ie I usually just type the number 1). It should automatically update to the current time.
- Do so sparingly and with a warning to other editors.
- If for some reason an editor deletes out a row. Please click on the words ROW DELETION to re-execute the DUP SCRIPT. It is located at the top of Column P
COLUMN F "Type"

Google Sheet Changes Since Harvey
- Sort order changed, now---- State, Current waze Status, County/Parish/Municipality, then Closure Ending Date/time.
- Changed OPEN to zOPEN so opens now show up at the bottom of each state since we need to see them less.
- Added NEEDS OPEN NOT LISTED to form and sheet to support closures in WME not on sheet that need to be opened.
- Flipped LAST CHECKED BY and LAST CHECKED TIME for better flow. Now one tab over from status is id instead of date/time then ID.
- Changed TIME NEEDS UPDATED to EXTEND/SHORTEN
- Move old "TIME NEEDS UPDATED" now EXTEND/SHORTEN to be beside NEEDS OPENED for counts
- Updated Form with "NEEDS OPEN NOT LISTED" as a drop down choice for status
- The script that checks for duplicates has not been updated thanks to dbsooner and justins83. We now check to see if the new row entered is a duplicate of others. We also can do a check every row against every other row on the sheet check as needed.
- A lot of behind the scenes script updates by dbsooner to make Expired, Expiring, Duplcate check work better and faster.
- A real time Stats tab that keeps up with some data. More will be coming out later.
- If you receive a warning message about cells being protected please do NOT make the change. Ask in the Waze VEOC spreadsheet-issues channel. Someone will review and make changes as needed.
