  1. NOTE: A few Important things to know...

    1. DO NOT include "#" in the tag name(s), as a # is not needed

    2. The exact order of the columns must be followed, click here for an example.

    3. The spreadsheet can have NO ADDITIONAL COLUMNS besides the 4 required

    4. A Card's content must live across 1 row in the spreadsheet. Do NOT merge cells or put content in multiple cells for 1 Title.
