What we are building: A Car Dealership

Create a basic inventory of cars, with a database to store their information and  a landing page for visitors. Use some fancy columns and sort out the cars by cost. We need to determine how to maximize profit!

Get your Teammates

You need to convince your teammates to switch over from traditional methods like excel. Learn how to leave comments and share pages/databases. We will create templates everyone can use. Import old excel files in, and also learn how to export databases/pages into other formats. Got teammates on Slack? Let’s ping them all day 🙂

Advanced Skills

You will learn particularly useful skills here. From setting countdown timers to scare people into getting things done to joining table information with relations. Aggregate information with Rollups. The Dark Mode/Database Lock make you cooler. Use the version history function to find out who messed up the page.

Efficiency Skills

Gotta be fast. Learn to use powerful and quick keyboard shortcuts. From basic to advanced we will cover everything. You can use shortcuts for everything from adding images to youtube videos. Add to-do lists and the lot. The @ command will tag people and pages alike.

Building Projects 

Time to checkout some case studies. Build a database for a Purchase Team. Use the calendar view and make use of templates. Filter out the items to be purchased on cost. Sort the rest.

Product Launch

We are going to launch a new product. Product X. Yes it’s mysterious.  But we will use google docs for the presentation. Show your customers the way, use google maps! You can add locations and directions!
