Assign each task to a team member under the "Assigned To" column.

Fill in the "Start Date" and "Due Date" for each task.

Set the initial status of each task under the "Status" column. Here, we created a dropdown list for this column for your convenience.

Determine and assign the priority for each task under the "Priority" column. 

Step 2: Updating and Managing Your Tracker

Regularly update the status of each task to reflect current progress. Adjust due dates and priorities as needed based on project changes. Use the "Comments" section to note any significant updates, obstacles, or changes in task assignment.

Step 3: Share the Sheet With Your Team

In the top right corner of the screen, you'll find a button labeled "Share." Click on it.

In the window that pops up, you can type in the email addresses of the people you want to share the spreadsheet with. 

After adding all the email addresses and setting the appropriate permissions, click the "Send" button. 

Google Sheets will then send an email invitation to each person, giving them access to the spreadsheet according to the permissions you've set.
