Excel Software Schedules
I think I remember a long time ago that Joel had made his Excel "Painless Software Schedule" document available somewhere on his site. I cannot find it (at least it's not linked to from the article).

Ya, I can find the article, but no link to the excel files.
I don't believe he gives you Excel files, but he gives you a picture of what the Excel file should look like.
I've written a program that we use internally that tracks software schedules, based heavily on the Excel model that Joel describes. Contact me by email if you want a copy. It's still in development, but it is stable enough that we use it all the time (about 8 of us, multi-user).
Another software inpired by Joel's Excel recommendations can be found here:
