While most HR professionals aren’t crunching huge sheets of complex transactions, they are using Excel to create trackers, reports, and visualizations of the business in real time. Being self-taught means you typically don’t know about the wide range of Excel functions and tools that can simplify your work. In this session, we’ll be focusing on a couple of areas: (1) creating bulletproof templates for your reports, (2) building calculations around text and dates you manage regularly, and (3) building simple Pivot Tables to create reports and drill deeper into the data you’re collecting. This session eliminates the guesswork, the repetitive data entry, and the headache of other users breaking your files.

Topics Include

  • Data Validation and Conditional Formatting for fine-tuned cell control
  • Calculating dates with TODAY, EDATE, NETWORKDAYS, and more
  • Adjusting text content with functions like LEFT, RIGHT, MID, TRIM, CONCAT, and Flash Fill
  • Finding relevant data with VLOOKUP
  • Reporting with Pivot Tables
  • Drilling into the data with Pivot Tables
