Sort and filter data on view-only spreadsheets with Filter Views

Ever need to filter or sort data on a spreadsheet that you can't edit? For example, maybe you're looking at sales data on a team-wide spreadsheet that only one owner can edit, but you only want to see items that you're responsible for. Now you can by creating a "temporary filter view"  from the toolbar or Data menu in the new Google Sheets (www.google.com/sheets).

There are a few other improvements we made based on your feedback, too:
- Share a link to a specific view so people don't have to dig through the list to find the one you want them to look at. Just copy/paste the URL.
- Ability  to change the range that's used for a filter view so you don't have to delete and re-create it.

Today is American realist painter Edward Hopper’s birthday and we’re sharing his best known painting, Nighthawks from the Art Institute of Chicago: http://goo.gl/hL6Nce

Hopper stated that this work was inspired by “a restaurant on New York’s Greenwich Avenue where two streets meet,” but the image—with its carefully constructed composition and lack of narrative—has a timeless, universal quality that transcends its particular locale. Reworked and parodied countless times, this painting has become an icon of American culture.

The painting depicts a brightly lit, sparsely adorned diner peopled by four figures whose relationships to one another remain frustratingly ambiguous. It is unclear whether they bear some tense, potentially explosive relationship or whether they have been drawn into the diner from the forbidding darkness to take refuge in the silent company of strangers.
Hopper denied that he purposefully infused this or any other of his paintings with symbols of human isolation and urban emptiness, but he acknowledged that in Nighthawks “unconsciously, probably, I was painting the loneliness of a large city.”  #nyc  #art

The huts of Bletchey's Park, where #codebreakers worked in secret to break Nazi cyphers and gather intelligence during the Second World War, had fallen into disrepair. Twenty five years ago, the historic World War II codebreaking center Bletchley Park faced demolition.

But we have supported its restoration, culminating in last month’s opening of a Bletchey's Park  #Museum  by the Duchess of Cambridge. 

Bletchley Park is where Alan Turing’s theories were first put into practice, in the Bombe machines used to break Enigma, operated by women like 93 year old #veteran and grandmother of one of our colleagues in Google #London, Jean Valentine. It was also home to Colossus, the world’s first electronic programmable #computer
