Not everyone is a spreadsheet person. On campaigns, excel or google sheets are unavoidable. Knowing just a little bit can go a long way and make your campaign more effective.

There are many resources online that can help you learn formulas or troubleshoot errors. We thought it would be helpful to give some guidance to formulas we find most helpful in campaigns. If you are just learning how to use spreadsheets we hope this guide makes it less daunting.

Use this guide to learn the following

Republicans have spent decades cultivating talent and investing for the long run, and right now we’re paying the price.
