A compilation of variations and enhancements of the interactive Microsoft Excel Check List Template
Clearly and Simply is supposed to be a blog on data visualization and data analysis. Hence, it is a bit embarrassing to admit that the most popular blog post ever is totally off topic. Believe it or not, it is the Microsoft Excel Check List Template published in August 2012.
Most hits on any given day, second most comments (176 so far), most downloads.
This is probably the case because I somehow managed to be shown on Google’s first page if you search for “Excel Checklist” or “Checklist Template”. Very popular searches, I guess.
Anyway. People seem to like this interactive check list and asked for various modifications and enhancements of the template. I already posted a few variations, but since they are buried in the avalanche of comments on the original post, I thought a compilation of the frequently asked enhancements could be helpful.
Today’s post provides the original check list and 14 of the most interesting modifications and enhancements: time and user stamped check lists, more checkboxes per item, check list with 3 possible states of an item and some more.
As always, the Excel workbooks including the unprotected VBA code are provided for free download.
