Q: Are the spreadsheets in the templates easy to maintain?
A: The entire kit is designed for easy maintenance...
- Data entry is separated from charts and print areas
- Data does not need to be entered sequentially - just put it on the Data Input Sheet and the kit will sort the data for you.
- Your entire dashboard is re-ranged using a single input. No more dragging ranges, copying or pasting.
- There are no complex scripts, add-ins or code, just formulas and charts.
