If you’re needing to create a change order for your construction project, Google Sheets is a great option. If you'd prefer to use Microsoft Excel, check out our article on how to create a construction change order template in Excel.
Similar to Excel, Google Sheets gives you the ability to create a change order from scratch or use a pre-made template to get started from. Better yet, Google Sheets is completely free and it’s just as powerful.
An additional benefit you’ll get from Google Sheets is the ability to easily share and collaborate with other teammates, clients, or subcontractors in real-time on your change order from anywhere.
While the Google Sheets template library doesn’t offer a ready-made change order template for construction, they do offer a template that will give a great place to start from.
However, if you’d rather start with a change order template that was built just for construction and designed in Google Sheets, check out the free change order template we've created, which you can download and start using immediately.
