Course Updated: Excel Charts in Detail

In: BlogDate: Jun 27, 2017By: Claire Lickman

So, you have put all of your data into Excel. But what is it telling you?

You need a chart, probably several charts. But which chart?

Hi, we are Happy

We are leading a movement to create happy, empowered and productive workplaces.

How can we help you and your people to find joy in at least 80% of your work?

More about Happy

In the latest version of Excel, there are 17 categories of chart type – with a myriad of variations on each category! Which chart best tells your story? How much should you put into one chart? Is your data in the right format to chart?

Our updated Excel Level 2: Charts in Detail training course has been developed around this scenario. We won’t just show you where to click – we’ll help you to decide which chart to use, when to use three charts instead of one, tips and tricks to combine different types of data into one chart, and how to put all of these together into a dashboard to present this key information professionally to your organisation.
