I’ve been using a version of this spreadsheet for a few months now to plan the content organisation, navigation and page structure of the website projects I’ve been working on. I use it ahead of any sketching / wireframing to plan the content that needs to be laid out on the page.
It does a few things (fairly well)
- Shows the pages on the website
- Shows the hierarchy of pages on the site
- Shows the order content on each page
- The organisation of navigation (different sheet)
It works well for websites with a limited number of levels of navigation. Any more than three deep and it’ll get a little out of hand.
Feel free to use in your projects and let me know of any improvements you think we could make to it.
