What's Inside the Puzzle Hobby Tracker?

The Puzzle Hobby Tracker is a Google Spreadsheet with functions and formulas embedded. There are 30 sheets available by clicking the Pages (tabs at bottom of sheet) and the page with the How To info.

This Tracker is free for you to use and it is set up to track up to 500 jigsaw puzzles but you can also insert continuous rows to tracks up to thousands of jigsaw puzzles. (I've seen Google mention 40K rows but it also depends on how many cells are being used.)

The main 3 features are:

  1. The Jigsaw Puzzle Hobby Tracker Master Sheet (To keep a general list of all your puzzles)
  2. The 12 months Individual Sheets (To record the puzzles you assemble in a determined month)

The following images shares a breakdown of the images used on the spreadsheet. Note the last 2 rows on the right side have dropdown lists to choose a '5 star' rating or a 'text description' rating.

Here's what is available to Track:

  • Organize your assembled puzzles in number order
  • Record the Date it has been assembled  
  • Add the Brand
  • Add the Puzzle Title

Jigsaw Puzzle Hobby Tracker FAQ's

Can I download the Jigsaw Puzzle Hobby Tracker to my device?

Yes you can but be mindful of a few things that can happen.  When downloading the 'Sheet' to your device, the program will try to collaborate as best as it can to the Device's available program to use. For example; it may read most of the program if it is downloaded to the Excel program but maybe not ALL of the components of the program will work due to the transmission of data from the internet to your device.

How long can I use the program?

Once you make your own 'Copy', you may use the Tracker forever and modify it to suit your needs. You do not need permission to make those changes. You just cannot sell it or use it for Commercial purposes in the 'state' that it is in due to Copyright reasons.

How many puzzles can I add to the Sheet?

As stated above, there is the ability to insert lines before the end of line 500 so the formulas will continue to be used. Visibly you can see 500 lines but you can insert thousands of lines.

Why should I make 2 copies?

It's best to keep a backup blank copy and an active copy. This is useful in case the formulas or content gets accidentally erased - you can always copy/paste from backup blank copy.

How can I duplicate a Page?

You can duplicate sheets/Pages simply by clicking on the Page Tab at the bottom, right click, scroll up to Duplicate, then give the Page a new Label.
