I want to sort the responses by names alphabetically Column A (Simple)

I want to apply payment types from a drop down linked to the person's name Column G (Simple)

I want to do both of these things with new form responses coming in (Impossible?!)

Please help.

Sample Sheet with Responses


1 Answer 1


Delete the formula in cell A2 and use this { array expression } in cell A1:

={ 'Form Responses 1'!C$1:E }

Then create a filter view to sort the sheet by column A. Filter views can be saved for re-use. You can open a filter view with a link in cell H1 like this:

=hyperlink("#gid=1483996664&fvid=1156058788", "Sort by A (Admin Notes)")

See your sample spreadsheet.

  • Excellent suggestion! Now if filter views only worked on mobile I would be set! I am not sure about Android but on iOS Sheets I cannot enable the filter view with the link :( Commented Oct 4, 2022 at 23:38
  • I do not know how to make filter views work on mobile. You will need a different solution. This question did not specify that detail, so please post a new question. Commented Oct 5, 2022 at 6:15
