To create a detailed employee schedule every week seems a daunting task for any restaurant manager or owner. However, with the help of restaurant spreadsheets, this time-consuming work is done in a short time using a computer and an employee logbook of requests for permissible absences. A restaurant can ask their employees their preferred schedule through request forms or an open logbook. However, a restaurant manager should know how to limit their requests and prioritize those with viable importance, such as family emergencies or an unexpected illness.

The spreadsheet was introduced back in the 1980s and evolved into a complex program, but with the right experience it can be an effective tool for estimating large or small projects. Standalone programs work fine for estimating large projects; however they cannot estimate all structural elements of the project, such as, concrete, reinforcement, form-work, excavation, and back-fill at one time. Because of this restriction, contractors are forced to develop spreadsheet calculators ensuring bids were covering all required disciplines in their bids to ensure correctness. Construction bids missing important materials or a labor calculation is the number one reason companies incur large loses on projects they would generally have slim profits designed into the bid.
For example, designing a calculator to each structural element included in a footer foundation - Normally you would estimate your concrete, reinforcing bar, excavation, back-fill, and form work separately. When using a specialized concrete footing contractor for an example, the contractor will arrive at the clients project site at the appointment time, walk the site where the proposed project will be, and look over the construction drawings. A well-designed spreadsheet calculator will deliver a nice bill of materials when you input depth, thickness, width, length of footer, and type of reinforcing material. The calculator delivers a total material cost, labor cost, plus the detailed bill of materials including 10 to 20% standard overage included in each bid.
