    Hey everyone! My name is Jayne, and I'm on the Customer Success team here at Vena.


    For me, I built a custom fantasy league template for my favourite reality TV show, Big Brother, which I'm the commissioner of. I used Excel to automate the scoring system and get my friends and colleagues involved! I've attached it to this post if you'd like to take a look! Who do you think is going to win this season?!


    How does everyone else use Excel outside of work? Let's see some of yours!

    I love this, Jayne!! Can't say I'm as big of a Big Brother fan as you, but this would be handy if I were to ever do this for my guilty pleasure show, Bachelor in Paradise!

    As for my nerdy Excel use, I used it to track all the money I've spent on my adopted greyhound! I was really good about tracking all of his expenses for the first two years, but ended up falling off the wagon. But I do remember spending an embarrassing amount on dog collars, bandanas, and clothes for him! So instead of my TobyExpense.xlsx file (and another weird Toby Excel I had... long story short, Toby came home with hookworms and I tracked all of his "bio breaks" 😂), here's a SuperCuteTobyPic.jpg instead 😉

    Can't wait to see everyone else's responses!

    I've been using Excel to track and analyze the books I've read since early 2020.

    Team #ExcelWedding over here! ​​I used 10+ sheets to plan and execute my wedding that was in July – budget, guest menu selections and dietary preferences, songs, photographer shot list, venue search pros and cons... the list goes on!

    My husband is a fellow #ExcelNerd and we were keen to show each other our favourite formulas and formatting tricks 🤓​​
