Hello Saul,

Other people can't upload stuff to your site with Yola. There are workarounds however.

The most elegant:

If you have your own domain you can subscribe to Google Apps. Google Apps allows you to have collaborators who you can authorise to make additions etc.

A spread sheet (compatible with excel) is part of their menu of file types available to edit. You can then link this spread sheet to your page for display purposes. You would have to give access to nominated users for collaboration.

Alternative:

Another option would be to have your spread sheet available as a downloadbale file from your Yola site. The collaborator would then make the changes and email it to you then you could upload it into your file manager

i hope this helps Saul.

Goodluck.

Two great ideas for a workaround. The Google Apps idea works great. Just make sure that you publish the spreadsheet as a web page and make sure it is updated when someone makes a change.
