Gathering Requirements With Excel or Google Sheets

Helping Project Teams

Collect project requirements in a quickly and structured way. Manage access, track and review changes, collaborate and communicate on top of your existing spreadsheets.

The Challenge of Gathering
 Project Requirements Using Spreadsheets

Gathering, documenting, and confirming project requirements from the stakeholders can be demanding for the PMO. It requires managing agendas for interview scheduling purposes and endless email threads for confirmation and signing off.

Layer eases the load by automating data collection and consolidation in a single spreadsheet.

Without layer

Project requirements get lost in endless email threads.

Lack of transparency regarding project requirements due to scattered interview notes that are documented individually and shared back with the project teams or individual stakeholders for approval.

With layer

Communication happens inside your spreadsheet.

Keep working from your master file while only sharing specific sheets or even cell ranges with different stakeholders.

Manage Access Down To Cell Level
Without layer

Your project sheet may include sensitive data that can't be shared with everyone.

Inability to share your project files with everyone due to sensitive data or to prevent unwanted edits.

With layer

Share the specific cell range each stakeholder should have access to. Consolidate with a click.

Review every edit made by your stakeholders, then decide whether to accept it or not before merging it back into your main file.
