Your Custom Spreadsheet Solution Starts Here!
At Time Saving Templates, we take pride in providing spreadsheet solutions that will ultimately save you time and keep your data organized.
Our goal with every custom order is to fully understand your unique situation, challenges, reporting needs and preferences when it comes to using excel worksheets. We then work backwards to design a custom template that fits your style and makes it easy and time effective to use it.
Most of the custom work we take on, falls into these 3 categories:
Human Resources and Compensation – With a CCP, PHR and 7+ years as a corporate compensation analyst, I look forward to reviewing your HR/compensation situation to get your spreadsheets streamlined.
Rental Property Management – I come from a family of rental property owners and understand those unique challenges and how to make it easy for you to use spreadsheets.
Small Business – With my background of having my own handmade, product-based business for several years and working with many small businesses, I understand the challenges you face with tracking sales, expenses and inventory.
How the Process Works ~
*First things first – you must have the spreadsheet program MS Excel. We cannot support changes made to GoogleSheets or Open Office programs.
*Let us know what features you would like and any other details about what you are looking to do. If you have a specific example or a halfway completed spreadsheet for reference, that would help a lot too, but isn’t necessary. You can complete the Custom Order Request form here.
*Next, one of our Custom Order Specialists will review your information. They may reach out to you with further questions to help determine the best solution. Once reviewed, we will let you know an estimated price range to complete the changes. We will not start working on the template until we agree on an estimated price range.
*After agreeing on a price range, our Custom Order Specialist will send you samples pictures of the template draft along with explanations on how to use it.
*Once all the features of the spreadsheet are completed, you will receive final pictures and any additional explanations of how to use it.
*Once you are satisfied with the setup, we will send the final listing/invoice, and email it to you after payment is received.
Through this process, there can be a lot of back and forth emails, as we work through any questions or ideas about how to get the worksheet working best for you.
Note that ALL templates are:
*Designed in Microsoft Excel, so you will need Excel on your computer to use these templates.
*They come with protections on the formulas and customized with the name and/or business name of your choice. The formulas are protected so that they don’t get accidentally deleted, which could cause the template to not work as described. If you would like to make changes to formulas, I can send an unprotected version, but I do keep the name/business name cell protected.
*When you buy a custom template, you agree that I may resell the template, or use all or parts of it in a you- tube tutorial.
For customizations to an existing template that is listed here at Time Saving Templates, the base price is $98 with half of the deposit due upfront. This is the minimum price, however after reviewing your specific requests, we can get a total estimate before proceeding on making changes.
For customizations that involve designing a new spreadsheet from scratch, the base price is $299. Even if it uses an existing template to start with, if there are significant changes and customizations it could fall under this category. If we agree on a custom order at or above $299, a deposit of $98 will be due prior to me completing the project. Final invoice will be due once the spreadsheet is completed.
What's Extra / Not included in Estimates:
*After the estimate is given, there can be 1-2 MINOR revisions/updates/ changes to the file. When new features are requested after the estimate or additional minor changes, will incur a $50-98 fee per change/update.
*Each custom order comes with up to 1 hour of email support, to answer questions related to using your new template. If you are very new at using excel, I also recommend the Getting started with Excel guide here. For continued support beyond 1 hour, there would be additional charges.
*Is this a rushed order? We are usually about 1-2 weeks out, with the current volume of custom order requests. If you would like to skip to the front in priority, you can do so with a $49 additional rush fee.
*Other additional fees – When additional features are added that weren’t discussed in the original request, there are likely to be additional fees. Sometimes it’s hard to tell what you’ll want the worksheet to do, until you can work with a specific example, so we try to work through examples of what you’re looking for, in the beginning of the custom order process.

Not sure if you need a custom spreadsheet?
Sometimes we get requests for spreadsheet templates we already have available, that would work as-is for your specific situation. Please review these different options, to see if there’s already a template available that will work for your situation:
