Have you considered something like a Google Spreadsheet?
This could be ideal, as it could allow multiple people to edit at
the same time. However, if you consider using it, you need to test it
with simulated activity, because it could lock up on you -- or at least
lock one person out while the other is making edits. If you do it, you
should probably have a backups on notebooks to use if Google
locks up on you.
With luck, someone else will tell us how to merge spreadsheets.
I've also merged spreadsheets with a lot of manual work, sorting the
on the same key, then copying the two into the same sheet, then
inserting blank rows in each as needed to match everything. To avoid
that, I usually use R (www.r-project.org) to merge spreadsheets.
However, if you don't know R, you probably don't want to learn just for
hope this helps.

The first thing that stood out to me is phase 3. Why not have the
spreadsheet on both laptops?
I ask because I can't imagine everybody always going to the correct
So why not support them even if they show up in the wrong place? The
scenario that came to mind is one queue is busy. So, my process
