Wow! This is a terrible idea. Coda.io is SUCH a better solution to this "problem".

True, but the article as about how to maximize gsheets, not an article about the best tool for visual project planning. Lane, thanks for bringing up Coda.io! Cool box of tools!

I don't disagree. But, I've tried to use Sheets for project management and using a spreadsheet in a way it wasn't designed to be used has gotten me into trouble numerous times. I'm certainly all for creative use cases for things but it's valuable to know a given tool's limitations before building a business critical workflow on said tool.

Looking back I should really have been much more gracious in my initial post. So sorry for coming off like I did. "Terrible idea" isn't accurate at all for projects that are smaller in scope. Thank you for the thoughtful approach
