Collaborating in Sheets can greatly improve the end product, but it’s important to avoid making accidental edits. Currently, people can restrict who can edit an entire worksheet or range of cells using the protected sheets and ranges feature.

This will facilitate increased collaboration, as owners won’t need to set complicated permissions in order to allow others to work on the document.
Try these updated Google Sheets features on the web today, and start telling better stories with data.
