Bid Sheet

Options

I was able to set up a bid sheet, where vendors of mine are able to add pricing to a list of items and have that information flow over to a master sheet.

The problem is I need to do this each week.

Is there a way to archive the previous files and start with a blank template automatically each week?

    Hi Adam,

    You could use automation to move all rows to another sheet at a given time each week. That will leave your base sheet blank for the next set of entries. If you don't have it I'd add a date column to indicate the date the entry was made or the week it became active. When you move rows to an archive sheet you'll be able to use that date to reconstruct past weeks without putting each week into it's own archive.

    Make sense?
