Filters allow you to build complex queries. When you filter data on a sheet, only the matching rows will be displayed and exportable. By default, filters are case sensitive. 


Filters Considerations 

  • Filters are case sensitive 
  • Data with filters applied will appear in exported data. 
  • Filters will only filter out up to 10,000 unique values. If more values exist, additional filters may need to be added. 

How to Apply Filters 

1. Once your data is uploaded, select the Filters tab

2. Once the filters box appears, select the column you would like to filter data from. If you would like to search any column, type and select "Any Column". 

3. Select the Operator. Currently Gigasheet supports the following filters: 

  • Equals 
  • Does not equals 
  • Is empty
  • Is not empty 
  • Contains
  • Does not contain
  • Starts with 
  • Does not start with
  • Ends with
  • Does not End with
  • Regex Match

4. Type/select the value(s) you would to search on each row. Press ENTER to add values. You can then choose to add additional filters. Once you are done, select APPLY to populate the sheet with the filter. 

Additional Filter Features

Filter by Group

Filtering by group requires two things: At minimum one group and a aggregation: 

When filtering by Group, you can filter the specific aggregate # of a specific column. Just switch the toggle to turn on: 

Multi-Value Filters 

Multi-Value filters allow you to filter data with multiple filter values. Having multiple values works essentially like several “or” filters within one column. Say, for example, you want email addresses that contain either the domain, or the domain. To do this, we simply filter the email column to only contain values that have these domains. We would do this by entering these two domain strings separately, by hitting enter to separate the values.


You can use AND and OR functions to create nested queries. This means you can apply more specific filters for your dataset. You can include datapoints that follow several “and” statements to really refine your search. Or, you could use “or” statements, to widen your search.

Date/Time Filtering 

Gigasheet allows you to filter your date-time formatted data. This means you can filter dates by before a certain date, after a certain date, or between a range of dates. This can allow users to filter out data that is too old, or get data from a specific range of time. To do this, simply click the filter button, select the column that contains your date-time formatted data, determine whether you want before, after, or a range of dates. Then input your desired date to filter by. 

Gigasheet also allows you to explode a date. Meaning, you can pull the day of the week from any date-time formatted date. For more information on exploding data, see this article. Once you have done this, you can filter to only include certain days of the week.

Filter Row Flags

Row flags are identified by right clicking a value and selected "Good, Suspicious, or Bad". Once rows are flagged, they can be filtered by selecting "Row Flag" in the column field:

Regex Match

You can filter with Regex Match by selecting the filter icon, then select the column you wish to filter. Next, select “Regex Match”, and input your desired search string. After applying the filter, you will see only datapoints with the desired string. Please note, if the string is within a larger string, the data will be shown. Say you type “street”, all addresses with the word “street” will show.
