This workbook is one of many Excel projects I have worked on over the years. I am sharing it here for the first time. I am not going to discuss how this application works but rather offer it up to the user as both a useful tool and an opportunity to explore the formulas used in its construction. It is important to note that the workbook is completely unprotected and contains no VBA code.
The ProjSetup worksheet is for data input. Column A is for the names of the projects to track. Column B is for the starting date of the project and Column C is for the finish date of the project. Column D is the priority of the project – low, medium or high. A Data Validation list allows for those values to be selected, and conditional formatting determines the color. Column F has an option box to select between days and weeks. The following figure shows these features.
The ProjTimeDisplay worksheet shows the project time schedules. This was constructed with Excel formulas and conditional formatting. Feel free to dig in to see how it works. Here is a figure to visualize the output.
