Organize with AI in Google Sheets (Workspace Labs)

Important: This article is referring to Google Workspace Labs, which is a trusted tester program for users to try new AI features. The Workspace Labs program is currently available to trusted testers in US English, and may not be available in your country. To check if you have access to Workspace Labs program features, open a new sheet on Google Sheets and look for “Help me organize” sidebar on the right side of the sheet

On Google Sheets, you can use the "Help me organize" prompt to create tables using artificial intelligence. You can use the prompt to:

  • Create a new table with generated column headers and example table contents. For example, you can ask Google Sheets to draft a trip planner or a task tracker.
    Important: "Help me organize" currently cannot be used to edit or refer to existing content in your spreadsheet.

This feature is currently available on desktop.

  1. On your computer, open a new spreadsheet or tab in Google Sheets. The Help me organize sidebar will automatically open.
Tip: you can also access Help me organize via the toolbar or Insert menu.
  1. Enter a prompt. For example:
    • "Plan a hiking trip in iceland"
    • "Tracking tasks for a project to build a new website"
    • "Planning a sales kick off event"
Tip: For better results, write instructions instead of questions. For example: "Wedding planner to-do list with status updates and due date"
  1. Click Create.
  2. (Optional) After generating a table, you can:
    • Send feedback about the suggested table: Click Good suggestion for a table that fulfills your request or Bad suggestion for a table that does not meet your needs. 
    • Edit your prompt: At the top of the sidebar, click the prompt. Edit your prompt and click Create.
    • Create a new version of the table: Click Create.
      • Important: After creating a new version, you can’t go back to the previous version.
  3. When you’re finished, in the preview, click Insert.
Tip: For best results, use "Help me organize" in a new tab. If you use the "Help me organize" prompt in a tab that already has data and insert the generated result, it will overwrite any existing data it replaces.
