Overview
Random Generator will be at hand whenever you need a random set of data in your sheet. 
Forget about puzzling over clever strong passwords: our add-on will quickly create any number of random strings that meet your requirements. All you need is pick a set of characters and choose the length for the created values.
 
The tool is also good at filling your range with workdays or weekends in the selected time period, getting unique numbers from the defined range, randomizing your custom values, or simply putting yes/no or true/false values at random. 

Create any set of random data in your Google sheet:

  • Generate strong passwords
  • Create random codes by masks
  • Pack your cells with dates
  • Generate real numbers and integers
  • Fill the range with Booleans
  • Shuffle your own values 

Since neither RAND nor RANDBETWEEN will be able to do that, our Random Generator will become irreplaceable for completing your spreadsheet with random passwords, dates, numbers, and other data of your choice.

30 DAYS OF FREE USE
Fully functional 30-day trial period. All payments are secure and include an unconditional 30-day money-back guarantee.

WHAT'S NEW:

***** V1.9 (5 May 2021) *****
Improved:
- The limits for custom list size were expanded.

Fixed:
- Created duplicates of custom lists.
- Errored if your 'Data validation' rules prevented the add-on from randomizing records.
- Didn't work if you run the tool from a sheet with its own separate chart.
- UX: the drop-down for 'Boolean' values displayed incorrectly making it impossible to choose a variant.

It does exactly what it says it will do, and it's super easy to use, even at first glance. Of course, most people will probably not need things randomized on a regular basis (unless you're doing research or something), but I can't think of any reason not to get this add-on, if only to have it tucked away in case you ever need it, especially since it's so easy to use. It's so user-friendly that at the worst-case scenario, you would have wasted a whole 30 seconds adding it and learning its interface.

Absolutely love this. I use it to keep my Instagram hashtags fresh and not over used. Too bad it only has a free trial. I'll have to figure out how to code this myself.

It isn't free, they charge you, you only get one free generation per day. Completely useless as a free app.

This works as designed and is very useful for my needs. However, one thing I would really love to have/need is a way to show others when I hit the number generator for a shared file.

This is very easy to use. There are lots of options that you can use for the random generator. The only problem I had was that it gave me one entry at a time.

Distribution is terrible. Sticks on certain numbers and locks up.
