I had some free time so I put together a google doc's spreadsheet for doing grain buys. My idea is to have a centrally located document online so that each person who wants to join the grain buy can manually enter grains/splits themselves and free Cidah from manually tracking requests in the forum. The thought is to make it a little easier on him for these buys.
This spreadsheet is not yet in use yet (and may never be). Its up to Cidah if we wants to go this direction. I just wanted to show it to the group to get a feel if this is even attractive to you guys.
My current thought is to have trusted buyers manually added to the access list of this sheet (so that random people cant screw it all up). Once you have access, you go in and add bags to your order and/or access splits. The sheet is mostly automated and only white backgrounded cells are supposed to be edited by buyers. I wanted to force protection on grayed cells, but google docs doesn't support this so be careful.
I loaded up the current list of grain/chemicals from this buy to just give you an idea of how it would work. Sheet 1 is editable by buyers, the pricing sheets will be controlled by Cidah or I.
Non-Editable version for people to see:
Again THIS IS ONLY A DEMO AND NOT THE ACTUAL BUY SHEET.
Let me know what you think.
