Export from Google Sheets to another Google spreadsheet

You can use Awesome Table Connectors to export from Google Sheets to another Google spreadsheet. Exporting to another Google spreadsheet via Awesome Table Connectors allows you to access raw data, schedule refresh to get regular updates, and configure your output sheet's layout, among other features.

This is the main benefit of using AT Connectors over Google Sheets’ IMPORTRANGE function.
