Published sheets should be locked (Data → Protected Sheet and Ranges → Add sheet).
When preparing a new sheet, duplicate the last published sheet and copy values from its "ring" column into the new sheets "prev" column.

NOTE: Rings are displayed in the order they are discovered in the data, so for the rings to appear in the correct order, after rings have been assigned, move entries to to first four rows to ensure the first four values in the ring column are (in order): adopt, trial, assess, and hold.

descriptionBrief description of item (with link), justification of recommendation, and useful tips/resources.
● Use basic HTML format (e.g., <a> and <b> elements)
● Highlight the first use of the item's name using <strong></strong>
● Preview your work: use "Preview Description" menu to invoke HTML Preview sidebar for active cell.
● When linking to the OpenMRS wiki, use tiny link (permanent link)

Strength of Recommendation
Deprecated once we adopted ThoughtWork's "Build Your Own Radar" repo.

A general estimate of the strength of the recommendation. For example, an item that is strongly recommended for Trial would be more likely to move to adoption than a technology with a weak recommendation.
26
A stronger recommendation moves the blip closer to the center of the radar *except* when the recommendation is "Hold", where a 100% recommendation is the farthest out.
27
For "Adopt" (the innermost ring) we need to keep the strength artificially low, so the blips don't bunch up at the very center
28
Avoid actually using 0% or 100%, since this will place the blip exactly on the boundary between recommendation levels. (Hold+100% is the one allowed exception.)
