Sheet or Worksheet: A "page" in the v-planner
Workbook: All of the worksheets in the v-planner
Tab: Tabs are at the bottom of each worksheet. Tabs are used for navigating a workbook. If the Tabs are hidden, press this keyboard shortcut to maximize the workbook: CTRL F10
Please do not rename the Tabs, if you do, then you will break the hyperlinks that are for that worksheet. I'm going to repeat this over and over.
There are a few ways to navigate the workbook.
Please back-up your planner. Keep several back-up copies. How? Back-up to a device that is external such as an external hard-drive, a usb "stick", a memory card, a second computer in your network. If you have the space, create 5 folders on an external device, name each one after a day of the week (Monday, Tuesday, ...). Back-up / overwrite a file on each of the days, each week or each time you update your planner. In this way, you will have 5 recent copies of your planner.
The easiest way to save your lesson plans for later is to copy them from the v-planner and paste them into a text file. Later, lesson plans can be copied and pasted from the text files into the "S" sheets. (A text file uses the extension TXT and text files are created with programs such as notepad.)
