I am looking for someone who knows how to utilise GitHub Desktop for automated version control of educational resources that are in Word, Excel and PowerPoint formats. These documents are to be saved on our company's server and I want to make it as simple and automated for my team members so all that they have to do is save in the right folder (this is the extent of their IT skills).
Additional features I would like to see or have help understanding on how to go about this:
Exporting the Version Control Numbers into an Excel spreadsheet overview with the relevant headings (i.e. what file that they are relating to).
Currently at the moment, I am having to input MANUALLY cell by cell into an excel spreadsheet the progress of these documents (completed, in progress, not complete) for a meeting held every Friday. So this means I have duck in between files and check what is happening - it is so time consuming. If there is some way, by using GIT or something, to represent those three stages the documents are in and that I could present easily with no fuss - I would be forever thankful.
I am also wanting the developers to have an option that when they are complete with their work that they can easily submit and their work gets carried over into a correctly formatted template and automatically PDF'd. If this is possible, can this PDF be uploaded straight onto Sharepoint without any stop overs?
It is clear that I am not a developer so please let me know if you have better suggestions. I chose Git Hub as it works in folders on our systems and the team are already familiar with that interface. I am aware that I could just do this all on Sharepoint or use other options but the company's Sharepoint has been poorly utilised and needs a severe overhaul with staff training.
Thank you, I am sure I have a million other questions.
