Create a new Spreadsheet from just a Name in a Sheet.
About this Tutorial
Um, and you want to create a brand new sheet and you find yourself going to, you know, sheet.new, uh, fairly often or not fairly often on a rigid scale, uh, not rigid scale. What is it? Uh, a cadence, uh, a specific cadence. And you know, like, Hey, I wish there could be just like fired off, um, a. Like I know the name now of like 50 sheets or 52 sheets cuz it's one every week.
Um, or. You wanna set up one sheet a day kind of thing, and you want them all in one place, this is going to help you. It's not gonna be the complete solution. It is sort of a, um, uh, a little Google script, uh, that you can find on class spreadsheet, app. Um, and it's this here just, uh, spreadsheet.app, uh, sorry, spreadsheet app dot create, and then you can fill in the name and then you.
Log, they're just getting the, uh, URL of that, and that's what you can copy from the developer page. But I'm gonna show you just a couple of edits you can do to make this a little bit. Better. Um, and then you can take this and put it into your script as you wish. Uh, wherever you wish, uh, or run it as a trigger, um, based on some input.
Um, you'll see how it goes. So right now all I have is sort of a name that I know I want to name, uh, a new spreadsheet, and then I wanna get the URL right here. So the script I wrote based on the developer one, um, is this function, create new sheet. Um, and what it does is first it, um, creates, uh, the sheet, uh, based on the sheet name, so it's grabbing the sheet name.
It is, um, from the A two here. Right here is the range of a two. Here's the sheet name, sheet one, and it's grabbing that value, the name of the sheet, and then it's creating that sheet. And what it returns here is sheet new. , uh, dot gate url. So we're getting the URL of this new sheet and we're setting the value in B2 here.
So we hard coded b2. So if you want, um, well you can run this script in like a loop, uh, based on, um, say you just write the 50 names here. Um, and maybe it's like, um, sales for January. Uh, sales for, I can't type here, uh, February, and maybe you have like 50 of these. You can loop, uh, this over and let's, uh, let's see what it does, right.
So I'm just gonna hit play here. Um, I'm just running it from here, but you can run it from a trigger. You can run it. , if you wanna create a new menu, I've shown you another couple of other videos where to create a new menu. And here it is. Here's the url. Url. So if we go to the url, let's open it up and see what it looks like.
It is gonna be just a brand new sheet. Um, there are a couple of things you can do with this. Like you can set the number of rows and columns if you add some options here, rose columns. So I'm gonna show you how to do that right now. Um, so right in here, we just created a name, but let's say we only want 10 rows and 10 columns.
I dunno, maybe it's, we just wanna create a dashboard or something. Um, so I'm, I'm also going to go in here and change this to three just so that we, um, use the next one down. So I'm gonna command S for save and I'm gonna run this, I'm gonna see what it does for the sales for February. . This is exciting.
There it is. So here is a brand new, um, URL of a sheet and let's see what it's named. It's gonna be named, fingers crossed. We don't have to cross our fingers. We know it's sales for February, and here it is 10 columns and 10 rows ready for, um, for whatever use you might need. So there's uh, a few other things, uh, you might want to do here.
Um, you might want to be copy a spread. Um, but I'm not gonna go into this. That's not part of the scope. This is just to create a brand new, uh, sheet based on the name. Um, and unfortunately, uh, it's gonna be a quite a much longer video. If I, um, go into how to create sort of a copy, we can just do file, um, make a copy.
If you have the URLs in terms, you can make a copy of that. Um, but yeah, I think this is really useful if you have say, you know, one sheet, a. Um, or you want to create, you know, sheets for the future and you don't wanna sit there and, uh, create those names over and over again. Again, thank you so much for watching.
