In this activity, you made a rating scale and sorted and filtered data to make your area guide spreadsheet more personalized and user-friendly.

To create the rating scale, you used data validation.

Your scale allowed you to offer opinions about the places in your guide.

This makes your guide like a digital travel guide or a customized travel app.

The features you added to your spreadsheet in this activity help organize large amounts of information in a personalized way.

The improvements and additions you made to your guide will help people find the places that interest them most.

In the next activity, you will write your own computer program to add even more special features to your area guide.
