Very interesting., thanks for sharing

Many thanks. Very informative.

So yes, in my case MS Excel... Thanks for sharing!

It's very interesting, as a new PM I'm always wondering if there is some "magic" tool out there that can solve my tracking/monitoring needs, but it never fails that I just fall on Microsoft Excel. That way I can just build exactly what I need within my organization.
