Now his spreadsheet has gone viral. While he is catching some heat despite his claims it was an honest attempt to stay organized, using a spreadsheet to keep track of dating prospects isnt a bad idea, especially when it comes to STDs.

A spreadsheet is an excellent tool to help you keep track of multiple partners, their behaviors and conversations.

From businesses to non-profit organizations, spreadsheets are used in different sectors, ranging from Entertainment to Culture to Education and to Health to name but a few. With the emergence of home-based businesses and an increase in the number of entrepreneurs in the marketplace, such software is now highly sought-after among home users as well. Undoubtedly, spreadsheets can help you improve the efficiency of your company regardless of the nature or size of your business. However, it is very important to note that the process of programming formulae and mathematical algorithms behind spreadsheet programs can be very complex and time consuming; one having to invest much effort to create the most appropriate spreadsheet solution for ones company. Judging by this fact, the recommended course of action is to hire the services of a specialized company, a firm that will take care of all the details and subtleties of the spreadsheet programming in your place, and provide you with a ready-made or tailor-made spreadsheet solution that outperforms your expectations.

Our first step is to capture non-quantitative data in the spreadsheet, so we reserve a worksheet for that. This is used for location and condition information such as address, zoning category, residential vs. commercial, neighborhood, occupancy in the building and surrounding area, school district, etc. This will all be useful for financing and insurance purposes, as well as keeping track of a number of properties if you have a large real estate portfolio or a property management company. You might want to put it into a standard database format in case you want to save and analyze the information later. We want to look at costs, so we reserve a tab in the real estate spreadsheet for that. Here, you have a decision. You can either make a large list of standard rehabilitation and operating costs or a smaller list of costs specific to this property. The first option allows you to use the Excel spreadsheet for other properties which are probably not the same. The second option keeps things small and tidy and might work if this is a once-off investment. Either way, you will want to include all of the costs in a timeline schedule by week or month. This would include the re-roofing, paint, plumbing, electrics, landscaping, electricity if you are responsible for it, insurance, etc. The financing costs are likely to be the most complex because you need to estimate not only the interest rates of the loan or loans you get, but the principle amortization, mortgage insurance, etc. This can be complex from a calculations standpoint. How granular you get with costs is up to you.

If you are experienced with spreadsheets you can also add extra features such as the ability to create graphs from the data you entered. Graphs make it easy to get a quick view of your current financial situation. The graphs will allow you to easily spot trends and areas that are in need of attention in order to keep you on budget. If you find creating financial spreadsheets a task that is a little to advanced for you, dont fear. There are other options for you that can combine and even exceed all the features even the most advanced personal finance spreadsheets can offer. The other options such as personal budget software may cost more than a spreadsheet you create at first, but are also powerful enough to pay for themselves with the advanced budgeting features they provide.

Spreadsheets are the king of project management support tools because they are the most convenient tool to use and the most frequently used tool. How do they compare to project management software? What are the benefits of each and when should you make the switch to project management software? While only you can make the determination as to when you should make the switch, this article will walk through the benefits of each and provide some guidelines. Depending on which research you rely on, the market for project management software is between $1.5 billion and $3.5 billion. That is for software that is specifically designed to support project management. Most organizations that have made significant efforts towards effective project management have recognized that it is very difficult to manage a greater number of projects and people, or a larger project, without the support of technology.

For example, Gartner, Inc., the worlds leading IT research and advisory company, describes business intelligence platforms as having three core categories of functionality (integration, information delivery, and analysis) and 13 capabilities (infrastructure, metadata management, development tools, collaboration, reporting, dashboards, ad hoc queries, Microsoft Office integration, search-based, OLAP, interactive visualizations, predictive modeling and data mining, and scorecards. While the technology itself is complex, many modern BI platforms are easy to use and loaded with features. For example, cloud-based BI platforms require only a Web browser, making deploying the platform a simple matter of signing up for an account and logging in. Of course, theres more to it than that. This particular tool provides users with the ability to analyze data from disparate sources and "mash it up." These mashups allow for quick and easy visual analysis and ad hoc reporting tailored to the users specific needs.

I use the spreadsheet along with MsWord to create a mail merge, the two programs work together to print addresses directly on flyers, post cards or envelopes. I can print 10,000 names in a few hours. There is no need to print labels and then have to stick them on your mailer. Another use for the spreadsheet is to do job costing. You can keep track of your painters hours and compare those hours to the hours you used to calculate the estimate for the job. Enter the painters names in the first column, you can then enter to rooms or job names in the first row. Then in each column under the room name put the hours or you can break it down further, putting the separate items like walls and molding/trim and keep track of the hours spent doing individual items. Of course there is always the profit and loss statement or spreadsheet with all expenses, which you give to the accountant. Using the spreadsheet to keep track of company expenses is a good use, and again you can use the "AutoSum" feature to keep totals. One nice thing about Excel is that if you change a figure in the column or row that you are totaling, the "AutoSum" will automatically adjust the total to reflect the new figure. So whatever uses you find for this program, you will find that it saves time and energy to do these repetitious jobs. And it will do things like adding or multiplying correctly and with ease.

However, theres no need for complicated formulas and no need to examine row after row of data and figures. Instead, business intelligence platform users simply drag and drop data and view it visually. Data visualization tools display results in numerous ways such as traditional charts and graphs as well as highly visual gauges, maps, meters, and more. Data can be drilled down in an instant, allowing users to hone into relevant data based on their interests or job roles. BI tools and dashboards can be set to monitor key performance indicators for real-time insights. In addition, ad hoc reporting makes it easy for users to create custom reports detailing whatever data they need to analyze on the fly. If youve ever tried to create custom ad hoc reports with Excel, you know how cumbersome and time-consuming it is - and thats after youve imported the latest data into the spreadsheet.

Not only are spreadsheets useful for keeping track of data and making calculations, they contain a number of business intelligence features and data visualizations. However, as vital as spreadsheets have become, they are relatively complicated to understand and use. While you can connect to external sources, the more data and sources you have, the more cumbersome spreadsheets become. Plus, theres a new kid on the block: business intelligence platforms. What is a business intelligence platform? Though business intelligence isnt necessarily new, the technologies used to deliver it to business professionals are relative newcomers. The term business intelligence, or BI as its commonly called today, dates back to the late 1950s when IBMs Hans Peter Luhn first used the term to describe the ability to understand the interrelationships of data "in such a way as to guide action towards a desired goal." A BI platform is a set of integrated tools that work together to deliver information for analysis.
