2. Create new sheet called "My employees".
3. Format cells as shown on the example screen (background, merge, order, etc.)
4. Import data from other spreadsheets (purchase_orders, employees, job_titles) using relative and absolute references + functions.
 
WARNING: Create formulas for more lines then needed to be able to analyse data even with new inputs.
 

Name: use CONCATENATE function to display surname and name in one cell.

Job title: import job title but only for existing users (no zero for empty rows should be displayed) - use IF function. Use conditional formatting to display job titles in specified color.

Seniority: use dates substraction and TODAY function.

Hour rate: depending on Seniority (empty records should not be displayed) - use embeded IF function:

Hour rate condotions:
<500 days --> 10$
500-1000 days --> 15$
1001-3000 days --> 20$
>3001 days --> 25$

No. of purchase orders: count how many orders were placed by this employee, display nothing if qty is lower than 1 - use IF and COUNTIF functions add ID column and hide it later.
Hint: sheets "employees" and "purchase_orders" have relation based on ID in employees and created_by in purchase_orders

Score rate: score depending on seniority and number of purchase orders:
1 or less purchase per year --> low
2 or more purchase per year --> high
Hint: use seniority in days to count this value and add conditional formatting. Use symbols to check and display smiley faces.

Salary: find and assign salary from job_titles table using VLOOKUP function.
