Locking parts of your Sheet
Now that you’ve managed to set up your own templates inside your Staff Booklet, you can look at customising your booklet further.
This module explores two of the more advanced features within Google Sheets which gives you more control over who can edit what information – how to protect tabs as well as how to create protected ranges.
This is a feature that a regular Google Document doesn’t have, which makes Google Sheets perfect for this task.
You will learn:
|Why it is important to protect some information and limit who can edit what.|
|How to protect a tab inside a Google Sheet.|
|How to protect a range of cells inside a tab.|
