Specifically we'll look at sorting / filter / pivot / find / and groups functions - and I'll suggest some really clever tips and tricks to help ensure that you don't lose or corrupt any data along the way.

Integrating Excel with other Apps - it really is easier than you might think!

In this introductory session, Mark showcases how Excel can be integrated with Power Apps to create a mobile app that creates and updates a spreadsheet. He also demonstrates how to synchronise a SharePoint List with a spreadsheet (and vice versa). If that's not enough then there's a great demo on how to pipe real time Microsoft Forms responses straight into an Excel spreadsheet (accessible from Teams). In the last demo we demonstrate how to co-author Excel docs across Excel Online, Desktop, IPAD and in Teams!

The Power Query Editor: Having your cake and eating it too!

You: a skilled, experienced analyst who is used to solving problems with Excel, but wants to explore what Power BI has to offer.
This webinar: A conversation where we examine how to use the Power Query Editor to prepare data for use in both Power BI and Power Pivot (within Excel 2016).
You have spent many years developing your expertise in Excel, and along comes Power BI and you wonder "do I have to quit using Excel and switch over to Power BI?"
Absolutely not! You can continue to use Excel and take the dive into Power BI, a task made easier because there is one tool that both have in common: the Power Query Editor (PQE). You can use the PQE to prepare data to use in Power Pivot within Excel 2016, where you can create pivot tables using multiple worksheets. You can then load the same data into Power BI, and create visual reports with it. Or publish it to the Power BI Service so others can use the data that you have prepped.
If you want to follow along during the webinar you will need Excel 2016, the Power BI Desktop, and an account in the Power BI Service (you can use "My Workspace" if you only have a free account).
Experience within Excel is assumed, but no experience with Power BI is required.

Data Visualization – think about what you are asking for

You want reports, you want dashboards, but what you really want is data that you can use to make informed decisions! The problem is it is difficult to articulate what kind of data visual would best inform your needs--so you often end up with a big report or an Excel spreadsheet full of columns and rows. There must be a better way!
In this session, we will focus on effectively requesting and presenting data. With the goal of reducing the noise, improving user adoption, and turning data into information that you can use to make effective decisions.

Learning Objectives:
•Why is data visualization important?
•How does the human brain & eye interpret data?
•Choosing the right visualization type
•Telling a story with the data
