Do all inputs have to be on an input sheet or tab?

Separating inputs, calculations and outputs is a core part of spreadsheet good practice, and Openbox enforces that. In the worksheets that it creates, all inputs will always be on an Input sheet. This will always be true of FAST models.

However, some other standards allow you to have inputs on other sheets. You can tell Openbox you want to do this by:

  1. In the Openbox settings window, going to “Standards” and unchecking the “FAST Block structure” option
  2. Leaving any items you want to be inputs on other sheets as placeholders.

This means that they will be highlighted in bright yellow.

You can also have inputs on sheets you add yourself, e.g. as part of a dashboard. See the articles on dashboards for more information.
