How to avoid Mistakes

How to avoid mistakes

Nobody intends to make mistakes. Still, they happen. Sometimes users may not be aware of requirements or make typos. What begins as a small error, later leads to unnecessary work that costs time, money, and nerves. Here, you'll learn how to guide users in a way that makes errors less likely or even impossible. Or to inform them on input what's required. In other cases, you may want to prepare data for decision making in a way that one does not need actual typing anymore.
And of course, there are the new cloud functionalities of Excel 365 opening new dimensions of co-operations. All of this is explained here.

Instant Overview

Instant Overview

Often, Excel is used to evaluate given data. Which values are critical? Can I see at a glance what the development was like? Can I highlight a whole row if one column has important content? Or ask for the content of two cells, simultaneously? How do I get overview in a thick workbook? How do I get a clear and telling chart? Is there anything as clear, but not as large as a diagram? Can I ask Excel in natural language without any formula?
All these questions are answered here.

How to Create Explainer Videos

How to Create Explainer Videos

To explain complex context and relations, there is a tool already on each office workplace: PowerPoint. But many users are not aware of what it can really achieve: not only record anything of what one does on the screen - it also can do videos with intricate animations. Elements can be displayed or hidden, created step by step or morph one to another. The audience will focus on the subject, the message is clear and the larger context will be understood. This booklet concentrates on creating videos for teaching and demonstration. No other hard- or software needed. The resulting videos can be stored or shared anywhere you like.
