5 Quick Tips To Make Sign In & Out Sheets in Word 2021
Now that you’ve seen different sign in and out sheet templates, here are five quick tips that'll help you make awesome sign in sheets for your business:
1. Don’t Ask for Too Much Info
Ask only for the bare essentials when you’re creating your sign in sheet. If you’re having your employees sign in for their shift, all you need is their name and sign in and out time. But if they’re signing in for training, you don’t need more than their name.
2. Make the Rows and Columns Big Enough
Keep in mind that people have different handwriting. Err on the side of caution and make your rows and columns slightly bigger so they can sign their name and provide other information comfortably.
3. Include Instructions
If you’re collecting specific information, include instructions on how the sheet should be filled out. This is especially important if you’re using a sign in sheet for an event or a company trip.
4. Adjust the Layout
If you've got a lot of employees, a portrait layout might work better to reduce the number of total sheets you've got to print out. But if they need to include a lot of information, a horizontal layout will help you accommodate more columns.
5. Spice It Up With Your Branding
Lastly, don’t be afraid to spice up your sign in sheet with your branding. A couple of suggestions include adding your logo or creating a colored header area with one of your brand colors.
