The challenges of setting up
 your Content Plan on spreadsheets.

Managing an editorial calendar involves coordinating the work progress of several stakeholders, from writers to designers.

Layer helps you keep all in a single spreadsheet, ensuring everyone can update their tasks, and you can easily have an overview of where things stand.

Without layer

External contributors have full access to the Editorial Calendar spreadsheet.

Content managers often need to educate writers, designers, and SEO specialists on navigating and updating their data.

With layer

Stakeholders have controlled access to the Editorial Calendar.

Content Managers can easily share direct access to the specific ranges that need to be updated. Each contributor can only see and update tasks of their responsibility.

Manage Access Down To Cell Level
Without layer

There's no easy way to track progress on content creation.

Writers forget to or are late when submitting progress updates. It makes it hard to be efficient when sequencing tasks and providing feedback.

With layer

No more manual follow-ups. Proper project tracking happens smoothly.

Content Managers don't need to send manual reminders or do regular input checks. Reminders get sent automatically, and a dashboard tells who's late or on track.

Manage Access Down To Cell Level
Without layer

Recurring reporting to higher management can be a tedious manual process.

Content Managers don't have a streamlined way to provide an update and report to management since spreadsheets can only be shared on their whole.

With layer

Clean reports are shared automatically with management.

Upper management can stay up-to-date by receiving automatic updates on the same reporting tab or cell range on a regular basis.
