Story

Background I came with:

  • Dreamweaver casual user

  • Two beginner’s PHP projects completed: one-table surveys

Our company used an Excel file for tracking documents and writer assignments

What worked with Excel

  • Our original Excel file was well designed

  • The data needed to efficiently categorize documents was captured and tracked

What didn't work

  • The file was complex and looked a little scary (users looking for a document would come to

me)

  • It did not store history

  • It did not track all the things I wanted to track

  • Editing the file has to be limited to two people, to cut down on errors

  • Still, I often made mistakes while editing
