Using the spreadsheet in a shared can mining operation

While running a mining op the participation of the fleet members needs to be updated in the sheet to provide an overview to the fleet members.

Before the operation

  1. Go to the current version
  2. Log into your google account
  3. Open the file menu and select "Make a Copy" (see image to right)
  4. Name it following this convention. For Shared Can use: "SHARED CAN - FC-Name (DATE)" e.g. SHARED CAN - Jefferson Spence (27/03/2014)
  5. Go to the top right of the spreadsheet and click on the "Share" button to open sharing settings. Change it from private to "Anyone with the link can view"
  6. Make sure haulers know what station you want the ore delivered and who to contract the ore to after the op.

During the operation

  1. Keep up with filling in the participation sheet with start and stop times for each participant.
  2. You must use a station within 5 jump of home and when possible try to use a station of home corporation.
  3. Per AMC policy everyone involved in the op should be 1.00 shared weight no matter their role unless they voluntarily agree to less.

After the operation

  1. At the end of the operation have all ore contracted to the fleet command (or whoever will be submitting the buyback contract)
  2. On the Inventory or Paste Inventory tab you need to add the amount of ore you mined during the shared Can.
    On the Inventory tab add amounts of ore to to the column "Amt Mined" (column C).
    On the Paste Inventory tab you need to stack your ores and copy and paste to cell A4.
    The "Icons" view in your inventory will not work for this. You need to use the "Details" or "List" view.
  3. Add ISK values ExtraISK tab if you had sold any salvage or modules from rats, received a cash donation, or had to pay an external freighter such as Red Frog Freight.
  4. Double check that all the participation information is correct and be sure to thank all those who participated in the op.

Submit the Buy-Back
