Google Sheets is a good spreadsheet application when it comes to the sharing capabilities.
Sharing of the sheets online gives us a lot of opportunities to make our work simpler with the security promise of Google. These days, most of the persons are having at least one google account. Even if you don’t have you can get one very easily here. [ https://accounts.google.com] [ YOU MUST HAVE A GOOGLE ACCOUNT FOR USING GOOGLE SHEETS TO GET THE TEMPLATE ]
Previously , when the sharing of the sheets was not that easy, we used to send the sheet to somebody through any other medium say email, they filled up the required data and then they send it back to us.
The process till here is not cumbersome but then we needed to compile the data received from the various users which was a real problematic part. [ Suppose if we have even a small number like 500, it is going to take hours ].
But thanks to the betterment and ease in the sharing capabilities of the Spreadsheet apps.
We need not to share any sheet today and can just share the link to update their details in the main sheet itself , which is going to be the key factor here in this article.
In this article we are going to create and use one VOLUNTEER SHEET for any reason and provide you a simple template which you can use to get the details from the users.
WHAT IS A VOLUNTEER SHEET?
We might need to call for the volunteers for any cause, it can be social, academic etc.
VOLUNTEERING MEANS TO UNDERTAKE OR SHOW WILLINGNESS TO UNDERTAKE ANY RESPONSIBILITY.
We’ll create a sheet where we can create the columns with the desired information which needs to be sought from the users who want to volunteer in our cause.
The link will be shared with the users and asked them to open the google sheet and fill in the details.
The list can be checked any time and the list will contain the details of all the volunteers which want to participate.
