What to do with your Furniture Schedule:

The Furniture Schedule emailed to you is a .csv file (CSV). A CSV, or comma-separated values file, is data saved in a table format and is one of the most common file types. It looks similar to a typical spreadsheet, but CSV files are plain-text or raw data. Since the file is raw data, you will need to import into another program that will allow you to add formatting and manipulate the data to your presentation needs. Once imported, you can edit, format and manipulate your furniture product data to create budgets, formatted status or inventory reports, and specification details as needed.

Accessing your Furniture Schedule:

  • Download the attachment emailed to you.

  • Open the CSV in another spreadsheet program, like GoogleSheets, Excel, or Airtable to start editing and formatting.
