Hi all,

I have a Google Sheet Template for New Hires. It contains basic info for the IT group to create the account. Currently the manager, after filling out the basics, then has to share it to a group that is responsible to complete several task.

I would like to know how to do the following:
1) Have a cell that when pressed will automatically share it to group.
2) Have a cell that when clicked it will put in "Completed by [tech's email address]".
3) Have a cell called Task Completed that will send a notification back to Manager notifying him the New Hire task is completed.

Thanks in advance.
