Excel Template to Track Projects

Excel was made for this! If you want to keep a high level view on multiple projects that are happening at the same time and include milestone completions, this template will work for you. Track on an hourly basis or daily/weekly/monthly by adjusting the view dropdown selector. Choose the start date or start time of the tracker and then start entering each projects name, start/end period, and if it is completed or not. If you are running a construction company, this is going to be really useful.

A Google Sheet version is included in the download as well. This will make collaboration even more seamless if your team members needs to view the same sheet at the same time.

Accounting and Law firms that need to keep track of time sensitive tasks will be able to get great use out of this.

Key Template Features:
  • Many view options (hourly, daily, weekly, monthly)
  • Separate time input for 'hourly' view and if hourly you can choose the minute interval (15/30/60)
  • Default 100 tasks, but easily increase by simply dragging the last row of formulas down.
  • Dashboard to show count of total projects, completed #, and outstanding # as well as %s.
  • Define if each project is complete or not
  • Conditional formatting will change the color of the task 'active' area for complete vs. outstanding projects. Completed projects will show in green and outstanding projects will show in orange.
  • You can easily change the length of columns if you want the boxes to be less wide, add descriptive columns if you want to track more information about each project, or adjust the formatting of the date/time that goes across the top without anything breaking.
Tracking projects in Excel / Google Sheets can be a useful way to organize and manage project tasks and resources. It is important to track projects because it allows you to:
  • Keep all project-related information in one place: By creating a project tracker in Excel, you can store all the relevant details about your project in one central location, including tasks, deadlines, resources, and budget.
  • Visualize progress and identify bottlenecks: By creating charts and graphs in Excel, you can easily visualize the progress of your project and identify any areas where work is lagging or resources are being overused.
  • Collaborate with team members: G sheets allows multiple users to access and edit the same spreadsheet at the same time, making it easy for team members to collaborate and stay up to date on the project.
  • Streamline communication and reporting: An Excel project tracker can help you quickly and easily generate reports for stakeholders, such as progress updates and budget summaries.
Overall, tracking projects in Excel can help you stay organized, on track, and on budget, making it an essential tool for successful project management.

Note, I have also done a Gantt schedule that lets you define different colors for each crew (up to 6 crews) and one that tracks man hours per time period against a budget as well. Those are a little different since there is no milestone completion color code formatting or 'hourly' view but they have other color coding features.
