Columns of the project change log spreadsheet template

  • Change ID: It'a a unique identifier column type. It automatically assigns IDs to each item added to your change log, under the conditions you specify.

For example, you can choose whether symbols, uppercase letters, lowercase letters or numbers will be used in your ID, and the length of your ID.
  • Date of change: It's a calendar column type. Here you can add the date of the changes. You can change the date format by customizing this column.
  • Description of change: It's a text column type. Here, you can find the description of each change, which provides a detailed explanation of each change log.
  • Requested by: It's a select column type. The name listed here represents who is requested for each change. You can change this column type to "Collaborator" to easily assign tasks to your teammates. If the person who request the change is a Retable user and submits the change requests through Retable online forms, you can also change the type of this column to "Created by". Thus, Retable will automatically add the person who added this row to this column and you will not need to add it manually.
  • Approved by: It's a select column type. The people listed here represent those who approved each change. You can change this column type to "Collaborator". This way, your teammates can assign these items to themselves.
  • Impact on project: Here, you can add the impact of each change on the project, which provides an idea of the impact of each change.
  • Status: It's a select column type. Indicates the current stage of each change, such as 'Approved', 'In Review', 'Implemented', etc. You can add more status option.

Views of the project change log spreadsheet template

The view types of your project change log template are designed to offer different perspectives and ways to interact with your change logs. Here's a brief explanation of each view:

Grid view (default):

This view presents the change logs in a traditional spreadsheet format, where each row represents a different change log and the columns represent the various attributes of each change log, such as status, date of change, description, etc. It's the most detailed and comprehensive view, suitable for editing and entering data.

Kanban view:

In Kanban view, change logs are displayed as cards on a Kanban board, allowing you to visualize and manage the workflow of your change logs. Each card represents a change log and can be moved across columns representing different stages of the project task management process (e.g., Approved, In review, Implemented etc.). This view helps track progress and manage project changes.

Card view:

The card view also represents change logs as cards, but it may provide a more condensed overview than the Kanban view. Each card typically shows key information at a glance, such as a title and status, and can be clicked on to reveal more details. This view is useful for a quick review of change logs and status checks.

Calendar view:

Calendar view helps you automatically display the dates in your table on a calendar. If your table has multiple date columns (ex; start date & end date) you can automatically create date ranges in your calendar view.

Each view serves a special point and can be used depending on the particular needs, whether that's detailed data entry, visual data management, or quick status checks.
