The new Google Docs spreadsheets are awesome in so many ways, but you might not have access! Sometimes you’ll get a little pop up on the bottom right hand corner, but I didn’t. I couldn’t access the new sheets if my life depended on it, until I started digging around.
If you don’t have access yet (you’ll know if you do because you’ll see the new Add-on menu in the top menu), this is what you need to do:
Step 1: Open up Drive and click on the gear icon top right and click on settings
Step 2: Click on the Edit Settings tab and then click on Try the new Google Sheets checkbox. Voila.
That should be it. If you were one of the unfortunate ones scratching your head, this should fix it for you.
