I am a "rookie" excel user, but I have tried Excel help and it doesn't seem to be aswering my questions.

I need to send a "shared" spreadsheet to several team members (outside of a work network) through regular email, have them update some items and email it back to me. What would you suggest as the easiest way to do this? And how do I merge and update once I receive it back? Thanks for the help!

Waterfall charts in Excel?
Office 365 customers have access to Waterfall charts since late 2016. They were added to Excel 2019.

Good morning karen in Clovis

Excel doesn't provide a built in way to e-mail files any more, but there are third party add-ins avalable to do so. You don't say which e-mail client you are using, but this add-in can be used with Outlook (/Express) :

How you update the workbook depends on many variables. Do your colleagues update cells in the same sheet, each update a different sheet, same cells same sheet every time etc...? You need to provide more information on this, however in the first instance you could probably record a macro (Tools > Macro > Record new macro) to make the task a little easier.
