Right now it seems like the easiest way to refresh a filter view in google sheets is to remove the filter view and then apply it again. What is the fastest way to refresh a filter view in Google Sheets?


If you click the filter button in the first row of any column (it does not have to be a column that is actually filtered), then click 'OK' it will refresh the filter.

    this doesn't re-sort the rows – Sam Watkins Jun 27 '16 at 13:29

    It's not intended to resort the rows, just refresh any filters. – Morgen Jun 27 '16 at 15:04

Easy fix: Apply the filter to the entire column / sheet instead of just the current selection. This will automatically update all of the filters to include new additions.


If you are trying to resort based on the existing filter after you have changed some of the sorted values, use the F5 key.
