Protecting information inside your Sheet

Hi [accessally_user_firstname], now that you’ve managed to set up your own templates inside your Staff Booklet, you can look at customising your booklet further.

This module explores one of the more advanced features within Google Sheets to give you more control over who can edit what information – how to protect tabs and ranges. This is an example of a feature that a regular Google Document doesn’t have which is perfect for this task.


You will learn:

1Why it is important to protect some information and limit who can edit what.
2How to protect a tab inside a Google Sheet.
3How to protect a range of cells inside a tab.
