Auto Sort Google Sheet

Well, I’m sure if you are using a bunch of Google Sheet to daily stuff like tracking your expenses, you might want it to be sorted by some column.

In my case, I want to be sorted by date.

This is my Google Sheet looks like the end of the month, I will submit my claim based on expenses on a debit or credit card.

Here’s the code for you to do just that.

function autoSortSheet() {
  var sheet = SpreadsheetApp.getActiveSpreadsheet().getActiveSheet();
  var range = sheet.getRange("A3:Z" + sheet.getLastRow()); // Adjust the range as needed
  range.sort({column: 1, ascending: true});

function createTrigger() {

So whenever you put a new row with an earlier date, it will auto-sort by column A3.

Notice there is “column :1” to sort column A. If you need to sort different column, change the index accordingly.

Do not forget to add the trigger to make it work when you edit the sheet.
