Excelchat Expert
15/05/2018 - 05:19

what are the slots.. I think you want to build a excel from the start is that right

User

the slots are the holes for the people, yes

Excelchat Expert
15/05/2018 - 05:21

Oh.. ok..

Excelchat Expert
15/05/2018 - 05:21

how many slots you have .. how would you decide the slot..

Excelchat Expert
15/05/2018 - 05:21

is it like the next available one?

User
15/05/2018 - 05:22

the is probably 5000+, we just want more of a data to help find where the people are placed easier

Excelchat Expert
15/05/2018 - 05:24

I think you would have to manually enter the 1st time .. for eg.. Alex - slot 1

Excelchat Expert
15/05/2018 - 05:24

then whenever needed you can find where there are placed like a directory

Excelchat Expert
15/05/2018 - 05:25

Something like this..

Excelchat Expert
15/05/2018 - 05:25

assuming you have 5000+ slots and not all are filled and you would have a book where you have kept all the records right

User

yes but we just wanted to make it easier for the manager to just click on the name and it will show which spot they are in

Excelchat Expert
15/05/2018 - 05:26

Excelchat Expert
15/05/2018 - 05:27

Excelchat Expert
15/05/2018 - 05:28

on the top of first name or last name or even slot there is a down arrow

Excelchat Expert
15/05/2018 - 05:28

hen you click on it you can select what data you need to display..

Excelchat Expert
15/05/2018 - 05:29

so once you have entered all you data(which is now in a Book) into excel you can then manage to see who is placed in which spot

Excelchat Expert
15/05/2018 - 05:29
