Unleash your inner graphical designer: build snazzy graphical features into reports and dashboards. Manipulate Excel's charts to do your bidding, or create entirely new shapes. Be careful though: you can get lost in a cluttered report. Discuss how features help to communicate your message and think critically about what gets in the way.

Build a chart that fills a shape. Use existing shapes or draw your own. Gender icons fill to compare the results for men with the results for women
Click on a chart or graphic to drill down to a detailed report. Click on a month's total to see a day-by-day line chart
Manipulate data for clarity: convert codes to meaningful text, group hours into shifts and more. A formula converts a date to the text Due Soon, Overdue or Up To Date
Use a slicer to filter two PivotTables or PivotCharts even when each uses a different source data table. When the user selects a Shift, they filter two different charts
Let the user’s selection determine which graphic to display on the dashboard. When the user selects a different work area, part of the report changes to a completely different chart


Basics of formulas, charts and PivotTables.
