With almost universal availability of Internet and the availability of reliable on-line productivity tools, such as Google Docs, individuals as well as companies are switching over to Cloud Computing. In this blog I will post items of interest to my colleagues/patrons/clients.
I have this spreadsheet I'm sharing with 3 different tabs. There are formulas linking two of them ('Raw' and 'Measurements + Selling description') and I would like to extract data from tab 'Measurements + Selling description' to tab 'Description template' based on the item number I write on cell B1 of this last mentioned tab.
Basically I need to figure out the formula to be typed on 'Description template' cell F2 to get the value from 'Measurements + Selling description' cell H3 if I type 1 on 'Description template' cell B1. (I need it to extract the Description information for item 1 in that case). With that formula I would be able to apply the same formula for the other characteristics and use individual formulas for the Measurements which now have a "TRANSPOSE" simple formula.
What I'm doing right now is type it individually for each item every time I need it, but i'm sure it would be much faster if I can find out how to do it this way.

I'm attempting to average wait times and want to filter the average based on the timestamp down to the hour. Below is a test spreadsheet of what I'm using. I'd like average column E (wait time duration) but filter the values based on column b's hours (so 6am, 7am, etc) I've attempted to try and play with the syntax and formulas and haven't been able to quite figure it out.
How can I count totals of items multiple columns when the items overlap in each column?
I'm wondering if you could help. I'm trying to record procedures being done by multiple people. Ultimately, I want to get the total amount of each unique procedure each person has done. They will do different number of procedures each time (i.e. sometimes just one, sometimes 2, sometimes 5, etc.)
Here's an example of what I have set up
Each procedure could be either a, b, c, d or e.
Tom, Jerry, Mickey, and Minnie are the people performing the combinations of procedures.
I want to total automatically each specific procedure (a, b, c, d or e) regardless of which procedure column it falls in. In other words, I don't care if there are 3 "a"s in procedure 1 column and 2 "a"s in column 3. I just want a way to get to the total of 5 "a"s for Tom, Jerry, Mickey or Minnie.
Is there a better way to record the data rather than by creating 5 procedure columns? If not, then is there a way to get a count of unique procedures in all 5 columns?
This is somewhat difficult to explain, so I apologize if I'm not doing it well. Thanks for any help!

I'm wondering if it's possible to do a couple of date-related things in Google Sheets.
1. Get the first row of each needed column to auto-populate depending on the A1 cell's month.
For example, if I wrote "July, 2018" in cell A1...
Cell B1 would automatically populate to "Week 1 (7/2/2018 - 7/8/2018)"
Cell C1 would automatically populate to "Week 2 (7/9/2018 - 7/15/2018)"
and so on.
For some months there would be 4 of these 'weeks columns,' others will have 5 - as necessary
2. Auto Copy the form above to 12 sheets - 1 for each month - in the document.
Each sheet should have the subsequent month filled in.
So if the month in A1 in Sheet 1 is "July, 2018", it should populate as "August, 2018" in A1 in sheet 2, "September, 2018" in A1 in sheet 3, etc etc.

I currently have Sheets integrated with an automated Slack channel that collects all customer submissions of a form on our website. The integration puts all of the Slack text into a single cell, but I'm looking to get specific peaces of info from the text in those cells to be separated out into other cells automatically. The text is coming into column A, and always follows the same template:
I don't think I can use the Choose/Match functions as each text entry into column A will have unique values for each of the above fields. Is it possible to functionally generate whatever text follows 'id:' into column B, whatever text follows 'name:' into column C, etc. From what I've read online it seems like this may be possible with one or both of the RegexMatch and RegexReplace functions, but admittedly they're both way over my head.
I think one of the main curveballs here is that there is not a standard number of characters that will be in each of those fields in the column A text. Any help is greatly appreciated!

I track my daughter's chores relative to time within Google Sheets. We use minutes to update the amount of time she earns and spends (e.g. she earns 30 minutes for cleaning her room or uses 60 minutes to play a computer game). But for subtotals on earnings and spending as well as the total balance available, it would be better to display times in terms of hours and minutes. I've tried a few different solutions but they all seem to come up short when trying to account for all factors like negative time, time in the single digits, whole hours without minutes, etc. This spreadsheet of blasphemous formulas seems to handle all the variations of counting up time that I need (in context of HH:MM) but I was wondering if there's a way to simplify the number of formulas.
