Now that you’re organized, you can begin adding content to your grid!
Helpful Tip: Some professionals have found it helpful to start by working with a spreadsheet. The spreadsheet can be a useful roadmap or reference. If you’d like, you can:
- Download an Excel spreadsheet template, or
- Click here to make your own copy of our Mapping the Legacy Google Sheets template
This document has multiple pages, each of which uses an alternate organizing scheme to help you document career milestones. Using the spreadsheet may be an easier way for some to get organized prior to, or even in lieu of, creating their own website and publishing a Legacy grid using the entry system. Please note: This step is optional.
To learn how to start adding entries, visit Adding and Editing Grid Entries.
Customizing the Grid Columns
Your submitted entries will automatically appear in a table on the Mapping the Legacy page. Entries are searchable, and the columns of the table can be sorted by clicking on the header (e.g., click “Decade” to view entries in chronological or reverse chronological order). You may wish to change or customize the fields that appear as column headers, or the wording that is used for them.
