So here's the thing. I like to write down my thoughts. But I also like knowing when it was written down with appropriate date and time. But the way I currently do it takes too much time. [more inside]

is it possible to sort Google docs [in a google Drive folder] in date order?
I don't mean 'date last opened by' or 'modified by; I do mean by numerical order, or even 'date closest to the present day' [whatever the formatting style of the filename]. [more inside]

I have two separate marketing lists on spreadsheets, both of which were originally opt-in, but have been residing on different systems - System A for email marketing and System B for SMS marketing. List A has the users' email addresses, cellphone numbers and names. List B just has the users' cellphone numbers (plus a column called "unsubscribed" for those people who. I want to combine the two spreadsheets to create one spreadsheet while keeping the column called "unsubscribed" so I know which people to keep permanently removed. Can you advise me on how to synchronise these two spreadsheets using the cellphone number as the common data? Thanks!

I like to write using google docs. I used to have a functioning bookmark that was a one-step to new doc solution, which I loved, because it was simple, and efficient. Some time ago that bookmark stopped working, and now it's a matter of several mouse clicks. This is a very small matter, but if someone has a one step solution they care to share, well, that would be delightful.

Hi, I searched through the archives and did not find a match. Thank you in advance.
Let's say I have a spreadsheet in Google docs with two columns, names and dollar amounts. Jane Smith, $5; Joe Sixpack, $7; Jane Goodall, $4; Joe Frankin, $10, etc.
I want to use – I think – the QUERY function to ADD up all the dollars that all the Joe's have, or all the dollars that the Jane's have.
I have read through as much documentation as I can find and it's not giving me enough to formulate a successful query.
=query(A1:B20, "Select A where (A contains 'jane')", sum(B))
does not work.
