Updating a shared list

I have 30 people in my group. I need a way that they can each document a problem with a particualr system we all use. I've been doing this with an excel file - everybody just opens the file and enters a new row of data when they find a new issue. Now, we need to do this so often several people may need the file at the same time. I know I can use Sharepoint to allow people to checkout an Excel file but inevitably someone will have it open and go to lunch or need 30 minutes to add their input. Using a database isn't an option. What might be a not-too-techy solution to this I could do with Sharepoint? Or something else?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This <a href=”http://www.bugzilla.org/”>Program</a> is used by groups doing software development to track bugs. You might be able to use this app for tracking your project. The program is open source and free, though if you do find it useful, donate a bit of money to keep the open source wheels turning.
Good Luck!

It’s not really bugs we’re tracking – it’s more of a the-process-needs-improving type of log. lots of freeform text. Thanks, though.

You can use a Custom List in SharePoint or there is an out of the box Issue Tracking list that would fit your needs.
