Britsimon - I know this is analysis - not sure if here or another thread but I think a one stop resource for interview prep, documents needed, advice re medicals etc might be useful?

Yes that would indeed be useful! Happy to do that as part of this thread for now - and then maybe break it out into its own thread if needed. So - feel free to add anything here.

The new forum software is more forgiving/useful allowing thread renaming etc and wth the "powers" of mod status we are finally able to pin threads and so on.

Hello All,
Here is how to embed a google spreadsheet in your post.
1. Create the google spreadsheet
2. Go to "file", "publish to the web", "start publishing". This will publish the spreadsheet on the web
3. When you publish it, it will give you a URL under "document link". Copy that URL.
4. Then on the forums, start a new post, From the editor, click on the icon for "Media" and insert that UR, then save.

We are trying to see how to make it such so that any registered user can edit it and add more info.

Embedding a sample spreadsheet.

To add to what Monica was saying -- We are also trying to embed Google Forms as well. That way, you can share the form that updates an underlying spreadsheet without having to open the spreadsheet to edit for everyone. I am not sure how it will play out, but I think it will work. Monica is looking into it.
