Creating an impressive, interactive Microsoft Excel Dashboard from scratch is not easy!
I used to stare at my empty sheet and wonder where do I even start?
You need a structured process in place to go from idea to outcome in a smooth way.
You’ll find out all about it in the course. We setup two fully functioning dashboards from scratch.
This course doesn’t just teach you a set of functions and features, but how you can use them together to create impressive reports.
It teaches you how to approach a new Dashboard project and how to structure your work so maintaining the dashboard becomes very easy not just for yourself but for anyone else.
★ Note: Course recently updated to include the OFFICE 365 & OFFICE 2021 version of the KPI dashboard. You can download that version if you have Office 365 and see how you can use FILTER, SEQUENCE, XLOOKUP and other newer Excel functions to create the dashboard ★
