    • The templates need work but they are populating the fields as needed.
      • Another step (not now): Use the extension that allows a new section to be programmatically adsded.
      • Format of the code can be controlled better by removing the opportunity to make mistakes (typos)
      • Meta: Think about include the following per-section as the title
        • Time
        • Comment
        • Label
        • Location
    • Q: Does Excel in Gdocs [ermit comparison between revisions?

Next Steps (2:25)
