Google Sheets Love – REGEXEXTRACT & IMPORTFEED

flickr photo shared by CraigMoulding under a Creative Commons ( BY-SA ) license Just two little functions in Google Sheets that came up as we tried to quickly pull comments from a blog for some other work. It was an odd scenario but the techniques should have other useful applications. IMPORTFEED The function below pulls my 10 most recent comments into a spreadsheet. You can set it to pull more but will also need to change the number of items in your RSS feed. You can find that setting under Settings>Reading. It’ll work on any RSS feed and there are a variety of other IMPORT functions that are worth checking out. This could be a useful option if you wanted to analyze the comments in one place or if you wanted to look a bit more deeply at comments on sites you don’t control. 1 1 I had to switch this to code because copy/paste led to issues with quotes messing up the formula.
