Course Overview

An Excel Dashboard is an amazing tool when it comes to comparing data points, tracking key business metrics, and getting data-driven insights that can help make decisions.

Dashboards can be created for different aspects of any business. For example, a sales dashboard can help you show your sales performance month-on-month and help you track what product or period is bringing the most sales.

Amazing right?

As a result, modern business owners, finance managers, and professionals who want to be on top of business performance and growth increasingly use dashboards. Employees who also want to stand out at work are also prioritizing this skill.

Are dashboards difficult to build? Maybe not.

Do they take time to build? Yes, they can take some time. In this course, however, you'll learn to build faster.

A common mistake professionals make with dashboards is building all over again when they receive new data. That’s not a good practice at all.

You should never have to build a dashboard more than once. We will show you how to exponentially increase your productivity and save a ton of time by using automation in Excel.

In this course, you'll get more comfortable with data analysis using pivot tables in Microsoft Excel and learn how to build an automated dashboard for your business from scratch without formulas. Yes, you read that right. No formulas. No Macros. Zero technicalities. Just tables.

This is my second training with Leonine Learning and it is just as fantastic and value-adding as expected/usual. This time, though it was not a Live video, I thought I would get less value but it turned out to be extremely worth the while. The instructors are calm and confident and you can tell by the ease with which they instruct and advise. The course contents are well organized and the end of module quizzes are a really great add-on. I think the most thoughtful for me was the addition of transcripts just in case one needs it. Thanks Leonine! I will definitely be back again and Oh! I already started spreading the word.

This course was superb! In particular, I loved the friendly tone of the instructor and that the videos were kept short and progressive. By having a transcript at the end of each lesson, I was able to go through after I had watched the videos and also concentrate on learning instead of forming lesson notes which is a major distractor from learning. Performing the tasks along side the instructor using the same data was also key in aiding understanding. I absolutely loved the course!

I love the subtitles that were added to the video tutorial. It made it easy to follow what was said. The use of slicers and timelines as a filter rather than the regular filter option in pivot is amazing!
