Who can use a skedsheet?

If you’re like me, there’s a good chance that you’re using some spreadsheets, and at least one of those spreadsheets isn’t really calculating anything – it’s just a list of things with dates and some other details.

At work, we’ve got one that we use to track accounts receivable – I suppose there’s a feature in QuickBooks that could do it, but because of how we do payments, it seems easier to track each customer’s outstanding balance, payment dates, and due dates on a separate spreadsheet.

In my personal life, I’ve got an excel spreadsheet of activities that I can take my kids to. I’ve got a list of everything that’s remotely appealing to us on a monthly basis, so I have one place to review my choices. I usually don’t plan ahead much, so it’s nice to see what’s open when I need to entertain them on a moment’s notice.

If you’re a construction subcontractor, based on the thousands that we’ve seen via JobTracker, you probably have a spreadsheet of the various jobs you’re working on with dates for the installs, measures, or production you’re doing. There are also columns for the details of the jobs you’re working on – colors, materials, and other specifications. In addition to the spreadsheet, you have some kind of calendar (maybe outlook or a whiteboard) to get an overview of what’s going on every day.

From customers, friends, and family it seems like there are lots of other folks that need a skedsheet: recruiters who’re juggling candidates, event planners trying to coordinate their vendors and guests, and engineers tracking a large development project that needs to pull together at the end.

If you’re already using a spreadsheet and a separate calendar, you can use a skedsheet.
