Get started with the first Project on me
Yeap. You can dive in and try out the first project for FREE. In this course, you will get access to the first project template, lesson notes and follow along as we build a Budget project together.
You’ll learn about the Google Sheets interface, copying and pasting data the correct way, and we will cover formatting and even a bunch of formulas.
Once you have finished the first project you can sign up to finish the rest of the course and really skill up!
We will get a grasp of the basics of working in Google Sheets by creating a basic Budget. First, I will show you around the Google Sheets User Interface (UI) and then dive into some of the fundamentals.
Project Management Sheet
In this project we will create a dynamic Project Management Monitoring Google Sheet, allowing your teams to track their progress and collaborate effectively with each other. We will also explore the benefits of templating data so you don't have to reinvent the wheel each time you need to set up a project.
Here we dive into the academic world and create a Gradebook, specifically designed for reuse. We will explore how to analyse your dataset with dynamic dashboards. We'll look at advanced formula construction, integrating live data from other Google Sheets, pivot tables, charts and much more.
