This is a question about the development workflow of front end engineers. I am starting a project for a rather large site with lots of pages, each page has multiple steps, and it's very difficult to lay out all the content in a spreadsheet.

The content of each page will be delivered in a spreadsheet cell, and some pages have multiple variable section that are determined by user's preferences.

I was asked my opinion about how to structure the deliverable. I am wondering if there is a best practice out there for structuring this kind of deliverable? Because when you have a poorly structured deliverable it can be almost as mindnumbing as using pen-and-pencil to write code.

Do you have any tools, formats, practices for creating deliverables that are easy to work with?

This might sound a tad odd, but I've had good wireframes of sites given to me in Keynote/Powertpoint style, as they can be hyperlinked between pages, and it gives a good rough idea of how it all should come together.

There's a bunch of online collaborative wireframing tools to tackle your dilemma.

I'd be very tempted to use one of them - you might find an interactive mock-up of the site far more useful than a spreadsheet.

there's a bunch reviewed here:

Personally, I have started using Hot Gloo. I like the interface, simplicity and its collaboration features. It also offers multi-page linking like you would get from Keynote and PowerPoint presentations.
