Very excited to try this for large scale authority research on artists (retrieving dates of birth & death, ULAN IDs, etc. from Wikidata)! Thanks in advance!

Dear Wikidata Community,

Following user feedback [0], I have made working with Wikidata data
from within a Google Sheets context a lot easier by creating a special
#WikidataBirthday release of the Wikipedia and Wikidata Tools for
Google Spreadsheets add-on [1]. See a concrete example in [2].

Happy birthday, Wikidata 🎉! Humbled by all the work the Wikidata team
are doing; thank you all!
