The Content Plan spreadsheet will help you track current and future content on your website. Each row in the table represents one piece of web content and includes vital maintenance information including:
- Publication date
- Upcoming maintenance tasks and dates
- Planned archive date
- Target audience
- Contact information of people who contributed facts to the content
This central repository will streamline your website planning and maintenance, resulting in a more vibrant reflection of your organization on the web.

The spreadsheet was created with Excel 2010, however it can be opened and used by older versions of Excel, Google spreadsheets, and OpenOffice.org Calc.
