This post has covered some of the regular tricks we use when planning event programmes with Google Sheets. Looking through ALT’s Programme Planning Template I’m sure you’ll find more examples of the way we both use and reshape data for our events. If you have any other examples similar to this or questions feel free to get in touch.
Recently I had the opportunity to be interviewed with some of my fellow G Suite GDEs for a Google Apps Script marketing video that is being pulled together by Google. The final video is still in production and I look forward to seeing the results. Over the years I’ve either produced or appeared in a number of videos and the recording session for this video was definitely on a new level. Before the recording session I was given the questions I would be asked so that I could prepare some thoughts.

=“<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p dir="ltr" lang="en">”&text&” — (@”&from_user&”) “&source&” “&created_at” <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8">”
I still need to think about how to accommodate “twitter-tweet” so that Sheets reads this as text too.
Doing it this way would allow users to download a list of their tweets and potentially paste the IDs into tags and then generate the embed code.
