The eternal battle. Which one do you prefer and WHY?

Excel +1 This is because Excel is easier to use. It has way more shortcuts and I really prefer working on excel over google sheets. Google sheets seem very clunky and is not something which I would like to use. The only reason I would use it would be to be working on a live spreadsheet with someone else. (Even working on a spreadsheet with someone else is not something I like to do - things get too confusing.)

@andrew_chau1 Thanks for the reply Andrew. I'm used to work with google sheets because I'm doing the Google Data Analytics Professional Certificate but I have to admit that it is basically just a ''bad'' copy of Excel!

I would say Excel for large, complex modeling - simply for the amount of shortcuts and the reactivity. Otherwise, Google Sheets when collaboration matters more than the model.

I love Excel spreadsheets. I have been an active user for over 12 years and use them every day. But at the same time, I am also a big fan of Google Spreadsheets. I run my online business using Google Spreadsheets and Google Drive, and I've been using them more and more lately. I see them as awesome spreadsheet tools, and I'm excited to see how they will evolve in the coming years. Based on what you want to do, you need to analyze the functionality and choose. Cost is often one of the first determining factors. Excel will cost about $140. Google Spreadsheets can be used for free. But what's important to me is that I use a graphing program https://www.wallstreetoasis.com/..., which helps me a lot when working in excel.

The choice between Excel and Google Sheets for project management ultimately depends on factors like collaboration needs, accessibility, cost considerations, integration requirements, advanced features, offline access, and security and privacy concerns. Assess your project's specific demands and team dynamics to determine which platform aligns better with your goals. Keep in mind that some organizations may opt for a hybrid approach, using both tools or, for example, available Excel alternatives or tools similar to Google Sheets to leverage their respective strengths in collaboration and data analysis.
