Managing orders flow
Google Spreadsheets allow you to create tables (spreadsheets) and share them with your team. What’s important is that you can limit your teammates’ access to the document. For instance, you may reserve the right for editing to yourself only (and as such, never worry that someone would ruin the entire table by accident).
Think about it: you post orders in a table; your teammates comment on the one they are willing to take; then you assign the order to the best candidate. It happens in real-time, with no e-mails, long times for confirmation or calls. And it’s all for free.
Google spreadsheets work just like any other table. They provide a ton of formulas, meaning that you can calculate payments automatically. Just run a separate payments table with formulas set up accordingly. It will save you a lot of time. Or simply add the price in the aforementioned order distribution table and use the SUMIF formula to adjust your team payments.
Instead of paying a lot of money for software, use Google Docs for creating documents. Apart from being free and functional, this service is always available on the go, as long as you have an internet connection.
