What we're about

Do you love to work with Excel? We are passionate about it! And never stop being amazed by its power and adaptability to solve problems across so many different industries.

Because it is impossible for any of us to know everything about Excel, this is group is meant to be a space to share what we know with each other. In each session, we bring a guest to tell us about their best tips, tricks, techniques and thoughts about an Excel-related topic. We are very proud of the amazing content that we were able to deliver to our Group Members so far.

Registration as a member has no cost, and all the sessions are for free.

Anyone can attend any of the sessions by clicking a link provided to those who register (RSVP Yes) to the session.

We would love to hear what you have been up to with this tool. What kind of problems do you solve with it? What kind of solutions do you build with it? What are your favourite techniques, features and tools? What is your advice about best practices for working with Excel?

Office Scripts and Power Automate | Mark Proctor

Online event

Wouldn’t it be amazing to turn hours of work into a single mouse click?

Historically, VBA was the tool used to achieve automation in Excel. Then Power Query and Power Pivot came along, giving us new ways to automate. But things didn’t stop there, we now have Office Scripts, Power BI connected data sets, and Power Automate.

In this session, we will look at the tools we can use to automate our processes. And along the way, discover we can reduce the one-click dream by one more click.
