Usage Instructions
The minimum data required for accurately ranking priorities with this tool are as follows:
 * name, the task's name or description
 * due date, by when does this task need to be completed?
 * hours required to complete, an estimate of the number of hours required to complete this task

The following columns are optional and are used to refine the accuracy of the ranking:
 * date request was made, used to calculate the severity column
 * hours spent, modifies the severity column
 * severity weight, adds an artificial "weight" to this task

The user should NOT modify the following columns:
 * priority, this is the whole point of using this tool … DON'T TOUCH IT!!!
 * severity, this is date request was made subtracted from today's date and with the severity weight added … DON'T T
 * remaining hours, this is hours spent subtracted from hours required to complete … DON'T TOUCH IT!!!
 * remaining available days, this is today's date subtracted from the due date … DON'T TOUCH IT!!!
 * raw priority, this number is ranked and acts as the final basis for priority … DON'T TOUCH IT!!!
