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 new content on dependent combo-boxes and info-graphic charts in Excel
