    I'm trying to make a numbers spreadsheet to use for keeping track of daily assignments. Each students has 5 things they need to do each day and I wanted to use the form to just check them off. My problem for me is that I have one date with 30 students and each student has 5 things I need to check. Do I need to create a spreadsheet for each day? Any leads on how I can create this is much appreciated

    The spreadsheet can only track two dimensions of data, a row and a column. You can simulate three dimensions by using multiple headers, as I've done in my sample, but the reality is you're still only tracking the intersection of a column and a row. Forms also reflect this limitation. Unless you are willing to create five columns for every student, you won't be up to create a form that works properly, And if you do, it's going to look horrible.

    Fortunately, checkboxes act differently than most other cells. Instead of going to a data entry keyboard all you have to do is tap each cell to turn a checkmark on or off. While not as nice as having a form it should do well enough
