Frequently asked questions

What is IF Formula Builder and what do I need it for?

The add-on is designed to ease the process of creating Google Sheets IF formulas of any complexity. With it, you don't need to think about the correct syntax anymore. All you need to do is enter your records and choose operators for your conditions from the predefined lists.

The tool can also display existing Google Sheets IF statements in pieces: separate conditions from the results and comparison operators from your records. This way, you will edit and save formulas even quicker.

Why bother with the add-on if I can use IF function in Google Sheets freely?

When entering IF statements in Google Sheets, you have to:

  • arrange the arguments in the correct order
  • divide arguments with the correct separators based on your locale
  • enter text strings, dates, time correctly
  • handle wildcard characters
  • use and enter comparison operators the right way
  • close each and every opening bracket at the right places

And when it comes to nesting multiple conditions, or introducing AND/OR to check all or only one of the conditions at a time, things usually get worse.

With our tool at hand, you can forget about all of the above points. All you need to do is enter your records the way you're used to and pick the comparison operator from the list. The tool will assemble everything you enter into a ready-made IF formula for Google Sheets.

How to create Google Sheets IF statements with your add-on?

Run IF Formula Builder from the Add-ons tab and do the following:

  1. Select a cell where you want to see the resulting formula.
  2. Enter records for your condition.
  3. Choose the required comparison operator.
  4. Add more conditions if needed.
  5. Type in what to return if your condition is true (THEN) or false (ELSE).
  6. Click Insert formula.

How to quickly edit existing Google Sheets IF formulas with your add-on?

  1. Select a cell with a formula.
  2. Run IF Formula Builder.
  3. See the formula split to pieces and change anything you don't like.
  4. Click Insert formula to paste the edited IF statement back to the cell.

See a more detailed description here.

How many conditions can I create?

As many as you need.

You can nest multiple IFs, use Google Sheets IF AND to check for all criteria at once, or quickly switch to IF OR and look for at least one true condition.

What criteria can I create exactly?

There are different comparison operators that depend on your data type:

  • Check if a cell is empty or contains values or errors.
  • Compare numerics with such operators as less than or more than, equal to or not equal to, etc.
  • See if the text starts with, ends with, contains some characters, or is exactly like a specific string.
  • Check whether the date or time is equal to, after, before, between, or outside of some period of time.
  • Simple booleans like TRUE and FALSE are also included.

Is your add-on case-sensitive?

Only 2 operators for text are case-sensitive: is exactly and is exactly not. They consider the text case.

Can I somehow check the outcome formula before using it in Sheets?

Sure. IF Formula Builder has a Preview area at its top. The tool populates it with the formula right while you're entering your data.

Can I use your tool to edit existing formulas in separate convenient pieces?

Yes. Just select a cell with a formula and run the add-on from there. The add-on will split the arguments to diffferent lines and separate values from comparison operators.
