To ensure that your task tracking spreadsheet is properly functioning, you should know how to edit it. There are some tasks that are best left out of a spreadsheet and you need to know how to edit the spreadsheet to remove these unwanted items. In this article, I will give you some tips on how to do this.
First of all, don’t use the search function unless you have good reason to do so. In my experience, most people won’t use the search function when they should and they only use it when they really have to. It is much better to use the delete function to remove some unwanted tasks from your spreadsheet.
Insert multiple columns at a time. The formula bar will be quite a challenge if you try to insert a few more columns into the spreadsheet. The more columns you have in your spreadsheet, the more difficult it will be to do the formula bar calculation. In addition, it will take longer for the spreadsheet to update and you may even get errors.
Don’t use formulas on your cells. If you can, you should only use formulas on columns which are directly linked to the task you are tracking. This can help you avoid errors and you can easily modify formulas later on. You can also use formulas when you are inserting or deleting tasks but remember to keep the formulas hidden and with functions that are used for more than one task.
Excel’s warning will tell you that a formula is not valid if you use it twice. You will see the warning on the cell that was used to calculate the formula, but the warning will also appear on the formula that was used to create the new formula. This will make it easier for you to use formulas correctly, but you will also avoid any errors. Do not enter a formula for a number twice, but only once.
Don’t use the formulas that you don’t understand. When you have problems with your task tracking spreadsheet, the first thing you should do is to check that all the formulas are correct. This means that if you enter the formula incorrectly, you should correct it before you start using the spreadsheet. This is especially important when you use formulas that are more complex than those that are needed for a simple task.
Use formatting to your advantage. Most people that use Excel make the mistake of thinking that you can ignore the formatting options. This is a big mistake and it will cause you more problems than it will help you.
These are just a few tips to help you get started with your task tracking spreadsheet. If you follow these rules, you will be able to create a successful spreadsheet and you will be able to use it for as long as you want. There are other tips that you should learn and apply, but the above are the ones that I feel are most important.
