Hi all

It appears some sharing rights on the original tracking document have changed, which has made it difficult/impossible for people to access. I've therefore made a copy, which is open to edit. Happy sharing:


Good luck to everyone.

Isn't this just going to cause mass confusion with people editing 2 different sheets, and neither being complete?

What were the problems with the original?

The sharing settings had been changed so it locked huge amounts of people out. The gentleman who owned the original document has also received his approval so was no longer looking at that document or updating it in any way. It made sense to copy it over. Looking at the editing history in the old document almost no one is currently using it... I can see that you did log into it. I've posted on all the various boards, so hopefully people have got the message. If you have a better idea, feel free to share it.

Hi there,
I see now. I seemed to have access, so didn't notice the problem.

I've just gone in to the old sheet, and obliterated the data, with a link to the new sheet. So anyone who is going to the sheet from a bookmark (not via the forum) will know where to go. This should keep everyone editing a single active version.

The biometrics letter finally arrived 10 days after the acknowledgment. I emailed nationality biometrics last week to ask for another letter to be sent out. I don't know if this is the one originally sent or a duplicate as they never responded to my email.

My local post office doesn't do biometrics, so will have to take a day off work to travel down to Edinburgh later this week. I should just make the 15 day deadline!
