THIS PAGE IS A WORK IN PROCESS
With your input, Checklist Deluxe will create a dated checklist for up to six different children. The checklists support up to 14 subjects/items and up to 250 school dates. After completing the school calendar and entering the subjects/items, the output will be something like this sample pdf. In the sample pdf file, page 1 is the administrative page and pages 2-5 is the checklist.
Like my other checklists, the printed copies of checklist deluxe is used by either you or your children to check off the subjects as they are completed. The checklists are to be used in real time, not at the end of the day. The main purpose of any of my subject checklists is to keep the school day moving along in an orderly and encouraging way.
Checklist Deluxe is like the other class checklists at donnayoung.org except for a few things
Each child has a calendar. To make the dates populate the child's checklist, the calendar must be set up.
You might notice that when you type x'es in Child 1's x-column (Column B) the other x-columns also fill with x'es in the same rows. I used a formula to duplicate Column B in the other x-columns. I did this because most of us will have the same calendar. BUT if any one or more of your other children need a different calendar setup, IT IS OK to overwrite the formulas in the other children's x-columns. To be clear-- It is okay to remove the formulas in columns D, F, H, J, and L beginning at Row 10 in the Setup worksheet in order to create the exact school calendar for each child. If you have to unprotect the worksheet to remove the formulas, then you are doing it wrong.
At each checklist that you are using, enter the child's list of subjects and items. The checklists have these tab names: Child1, Child2, Child3, Child4, Child5, and Child6.
After setup is completed print the checklists, and as usual, I urge you to check Print Preview first.
If the worksheet needs to be unprotected to make changes, then please remember to protect the worksheet when you are finished. After any changes are made, you will need to adjust the width of the comment column. To make this easier, check print preview before adjusting the comment column because that will cause the page boundaries to appear on the worksheet.
Take care of your spreadsheet. Below is a list of actions that might break the functions in the Checklist..
I hope you find this file useful.
Sincerely, Donna Young
