Spreadsheets are necessary to perform calculations almost in any project or activity within an organization. When you want to draw up a budget for a new project, sum up capital costs or perform payroll calculations, you usually use agendas. If you need to share spreadsheet data, you can use shared spreadsheets . There are special software solutions that let you create and manage shared spreadsheets and shared work plans . Such software solutions allow creating a shared repository or a database where you can safely keep business information, including daily todo lists and job calendars. Those solutions can be online and desktop-based.

Online editors allow connecting to a repository through Internet. They are recommended for people who use only primary functions (like creating, editing and sharing data) and who have no alterative to Internet-driven collaboration. An example of online editors is the Google solution. Google offers free and simple tools to create and manage agendas and todo lists. If you have Google's account, you can try these tools.

Desktop-based solutions allow creating and accessing repositories or databases through local area network. An example of desktop-based editors is MS Excel. Excel files are convenient for financial calculations as Excel supports powerful data calculation features. You can perform almost any mathematical operation in cells and rows of Excel spreadsheets and create shared workbooks . But when it comes to managing and exchanging data, Excel shows problems , like poor performance and slow scrolling.

Shared spreadsheet and task management

You have to wait until your computer opens a large Excel file and allows you scrolling down shared workbooks . Due to slow performance and insufficient data sharing capabilities, MS Excel is not so good repository, and using Excel shared work plans becomes stale.
