Shortcodes are essential when using the Sheets app on an Android or iOS device, and very useful when using the Sheets web browser user interface as well.

With a few exceptions shortcodes can be entered in a blank data cell or appended to the data already in a cell.

For example )* will advance a section in Lives play and )= will sort a pool by column A.

Make sure the 'blank' cell doesn't have a formula in it

It is worthwhile learning these codes. Use a training spreadsheet running in a web browser to gain familiarity and using Chartroom mobile will be a breeze.
