    If your users are accessing the sheet directly, then no - everyone will see the same thing.


    The way to work around this is to give them access to forms and reports.


    I will usually create a dashboard - the dashboard will have the data entry form for adding new rows, then will have a report that shows that user the rows and columns that I want them to see (most often, using the Current User filter).


    They can edit the rows within the report, and add new rows with the form. If you want them to be able to delete rows, add a "Delete" checkbox, and set your filter to exclude rows where that box is checked.
