"Microsoft Excel, the best friend of your work and home when making datas and statistics"

What do you like best?

Microsoft Excel allows you to create all kinds of data, file, mathematical formulas, to take control of relations quickly. The information that is stored is collected very easily, changes can be made in regards to the display of tables, titles, values, among other aspects. The formulas that this program has are excellent because it allows to decrease the response of some items that we transcribe manually. It is an excellent graficador and if we need to look for specific values ​​we can do it through the filters. The formulas do not have much complication and are very diverse. When we find ourselves with very extensive data, we can compare them and find a common factor, our response code. Currently companies globally uses this program to bring their organizations. It can be programmed with certain specifications to interlace with other programs and upload it to the cloud to our mail. In short, an important ally for our work.

What do you dislike?

A negative aspect in Microsoft Excel is that if we handle a very extensive data, some values ​​can be skipped or not, because of the volume of information that it has. When we cross one data with another, we must be very aware of what formula to use, that is, place the amounts in numerical values ​​and that there is no impediment for the formula and the response to give is correct. The self-saving aspect should be placed to avoid loss of information.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The permission to use this program is a bit expensive, however it is not a limitation. We use Microsoft Excel, so that instead of being seen as an expense, it is a cost and allows us to generate income. In advance, we create databases that are a little simpler than the answers. The benefits are impressive, it is a program that collects and stores valuable information and if we need to locate something specific, it will do so precisely, even with a very nice visualization. The best program of the Office Package.

"Excel."

What do you like best?

It is the calculation sheet that par excellence we use in the accounting area of ​​the company for the preparation of books and balance sheets.

With Excel we can present the data in a personalized way since we can format the cells in the most precise way.

It facilitates the internal search of data in the sheet, you can link different books and spreadsheets, this allows you to relate data from different sources in the way we need.

The creation of reports and tables are very useful functions to support decision making.

I like its ease of use and the number and variety of functions that are typical of spreadsheets.

What do you dislike?

Some formulas are extremely complicated to understand and really in the documentation (help) of Excel I have not been able to find information that helps me to clear up the doubts.

Recommendations to others considering the product

What I can recommend to other Excel users is that they use it for jobs associated with data on which analysis, graphs, reports can be detached, that is, the tool must be used appropriately.

In addition, although there are other softwares in the market with the same purpose as Excel, the latter is the product that is universally recognized as the best.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As mentioned above, this product is used to automate the accounting books and different financial balances of the company where I work, it is a specialized program in this area since it incorporates all the necessary tools to do so.

"A robust spreedsheet application with a helpful interface."

What do you like best?

Hard to keep it to one. Upfront, it's the interface. There are few times I need to use the toolbar to do something. The interface has most of what I need. That could get clunky, but Microsoft has improved their interface over the years that now it is neat and tidy. And it works so well that finding what I need is not a chore. It all seems intuitive.

The pivot tables and charts. I can put my data into Excel and analyze it from different angles without much hassle. With index-match, I am able to seek out only the few things I need to look at from a larger group.

What do you dislike?

Big learning curve. It's not Microsoft's fault. It's just the nature of the beast; if you want the best, you have to master a lot. Fixing errors makes me want to pull my hair out.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I need to keep my business going. So, Excel helps me with cash-flow statements, amortization schedules, the impact of taxation, etc.

I have worked with Excel for about 9 years and I can say that it is one of the best Calculation programs that exists in the Market. What I like most about Excel is that you can work with several tasks in the same spreadsheet.

"Microsoft Excel: The best program to prepare tables and results statements."

What do you like best?

What I like most about Microsoft Excel is how it allows me to work large volumes of data in a fast and efficient way, it allows me to create dynamic tables and it is so simple to use that it can be used for all kinds of tasks from the simplest an attendance list until the most elaborate, such as creating a results status table. Undoubtedly it is a software that can be used in any area and is very useful for ordering data quickly.

What do you dislike?

What I do not like about Microsoft Excel is that sometimes the program slows down when they are deposited in a large amount of data and sometimes tends to close abruptly, in addition to work the graphics becomes a bit difficult and achieve the finished desired is not a simple task.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Microsoft Excel is a software that is very easy to use, in addition to having an extremely wide number of applied uses, currently in the market you can find similar programs, but with total security you can say that none of them have the benefits of Excel, maybe the price is a little high but believe me that quality is worth it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Microsoft Excel is a program that I use daily in my work, it allows me to organize the data and the elements related to the clients that I attend, this data is used to measure the quality of the service we provide in the company.

"A powerful and in depth spreadsheet solution. "

What do you like best?

I love how diverse the utility of Excel is, and how many different things you can accomplish with it. I use it for everything spreadsheet and data storage and querying related, and it is yet to let me down.

Runs like a dream and I've only scratched the surface.

Pivot tables and who is queries are seamless and once you know how to do them are a breaze. The help utility is incredibly useful (and has saved me more times than I can count, I am ashamed to admit). So yeah Excel is fantastic for database management and querying (despite it not being its predominant usecase). It integrates nicely with Microsoft Access too.

What do you dislike?

It sometimes lags and stutters a little when using older machines or working on ridiculously large spreadsheets, but that is to be expected. This may be down to my hardware, but even so, ideally it would run smoothly regardless so it is a small gripe.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Learn how to use it in your use case first to save you having to constantly look up formulas and such: this will save you so much time in the short and long run.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Forfills my every spreadsheet need with the capacity to do so much more. Huge amounts of data storage, management and querying are possible and easy thanks to Excel, I have never bothered looking for an alternative as it isn't broken, so why fix it. Any alternatives I've happened across are not even in the same league.

"Love the advance functionality of Excel I've become an Expert over the past two years."

What do you like best?

I like the built in statistics functions and the graphs and charts that are so seemless to make once you have input your data and formulas correctly. I also really like the "whatif" function and the add-on tools that are out there to do all kinds of specialized tasks.

What do you dislike?

Cant think of anything I don't like other than keying in the data if its not already in a table somewhere but that rarely is the case. Excel is useful in every type of situation whether you are forecasting sales, bidding a job, doing risk assessment, or just creating a table that auto updates a date field or total it is my go-to tool.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take a class or take the time to learn all the basics so when you need to start using the advanced functions they will be easier to navigate and utilize for all your business tasks that involve math or lists or tables and charts/graphs. Excel is the most useful tool in our office, and in my home for that matter. I would totally recommend it for the office and the home as it is something I use everyday.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

What business problem can't you solve with Excel would be easier to answer, I think excel is helpful in most all business related tasks.

"Excel-lent for everything"

What do you like best?

I like everything about excel, but the most I like is the macros and the table format. Is so much secure to work with tables and names, more than just arrange data in rows and columns.

Filtering data by color, codes (using the concatenate formula), conditional format is always a well known tool.

And of course, the hypothesis resource.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes excel gets freeze, but I think this is locally, because I use it in a so intense way. I usually work with more than five sheets open.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Naturally, Excel works for lots of issues. If you have not tried it, you definitively should. It is known that you can do magic in excel. From making simple reports, to tables, to dynamic tables and also games.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reports, comparisons, we have another system for accounting and earned value, with we can extract data from and prepares lots of reports, graphs... directly in excel.

We also make presentation directly in excel, sometimes instead power point.

Now, we're trying to explore Power BI and excel continue being the principal base for data info.

"THE BEST AND MOST EASY SOFTWARE"

What do you like best?

Particularly I like it a lot, excel facilitates the way in which different calculations are made, you can create formats according to the requirements of each person, it can be as much for something simple as for advanced things where different tools are used, I like enough your graphics and the way in which they can be understood, is a question of knowing how to use it and know it, because it is quite profound. I have been a satisfied Excel user for quite a long time. Excel has made the date storage very easy and it allows the user store and organize large amount of data in spreadsheets. Excel is the best spreadsheet software available, and in my opinion is the most important software for any company.

What do you dislike?

Excel is an amazing software, but there is one thing i dislike. User cannot reset the password of protected files. There are few fixes I found on forums but Excel should have a method to reset the password of protected files. It can be a little bit too expensive getting the license for using the full version, and therefore unlocking all of its features. Plus, for some inexperienced users, Excel could be a little complicated to use, and more so to master

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would highly recommend Excel to others

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Excel to make my invoices. I use all the functions in it, from the formulas to the fact that I can link cells from one page to the other of the document. So I've a great customers list with all the data and an easy way to make an invoice very fast. It´s easy: I can organize any work or personal content in tables and rows, in a way that keeping track of things is really easy. Also, when I need to organize some numbers and make automatic calculations for my personal business, I can easily achieve this with the help of excel, instead of spending hours with a calculator. Excel is a real versatile tool.

"Great Tool for Data Entry/Coding"

What do you like best?

Excel is extremely diverse in its functionality. I have been using it every day for four years and have only tapped into a small fraction of its capabilities. I work as a coding specialist for an HDFS professor and I could not do my job without this software. It is great for data entry and coding, as well as data organization.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes Excel can be a bit overwhelming since is capable of so much. There are also some "glitches" that arise every so often that are a nuisance when trying to work quickly, but I can get them sorted out most of the time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Excel is an incredibly useful software that can meet a variety of needs in all industries. Take your time in learning it and becoming acclimated with its many capabilities, and it will be one of the most valuable resources you have in your job.

"Microsoft Excel: an essential program for work in the office."

What do you like best?

One of the things I like about Microsoft Excel is that to use the program the user does not have to know the programming language or how to configure the software, it has a fairly simple interface that allows access to all types of professionals . Simply write the data into cells and columns and use the formulas to integrate the data. In addition to all the above mentioned Microsoft Excel has a good number of predesigned templates that serve as a starting point to develop your own work as well as also allows you to create charts, tables and statements of results in a quick and easy way.

What do you dislike?

One of the things I do not like about Microsoft Excel is that the program tends to hang when working with high volume data. This undoubtedly means a serious problem because sometimes in my work I use large data sets and it does not allow me to work in the desired way. In addition, the program filters have many problems with large numbers. Actually Microsoft Excel provides a good amount of space to store data, but that space is limited and does not work properly very often.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Although there are many free office programs on the market with features similar to those of Microsoft Excel, none compare in quality or performance, perhaps its price is considered a bit high by some but without a doubt is one of the Smarter investments that can be made, I really recommend it with your eyes closed.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Thanks to Microsoft Excel, I can prepare product sales sheets, which show in detail available quantities and unit prices and by boxes of the products that the company sells, in addition to making lists of customers and pending orders they have, all in the simplest way thanks to the friendly interface of the program.

I dislike that sometimes the errors are hard to locate, for example if I have a big report and an error shows up, it's not clear about defining where the error is and doesn't tell me which cell is causing an error.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The Business problems we are solving using with excel are operations reporting and data needs.

I realized that I've really improved my skills with building reports and using SQL for reports. I learned how to use the formats and making a report have a nice appearance through excel.

" Excellent tool for the automation of information, administrative control and database management."

What do you like best?

It is an application used in financial and accounting tasks, which allows to establish formulas, use graphics and also incorporates a programming language that makes the work more comfortable, fast and easy. The files produced in Microsoft Excel show a better presentation if you want, since it has tools for it. This tool has as its main advantage the interaction with other software destined to the elaboration of data bases, which allows the automation and that lighten the process.

What do you dislike?

It only has compatibility with Windows and Mac. Files made in Microsoft Excel take up a lot of hard disk space. Sometimes it is not easy to use, since it requires a good investment of time to achieve an optimal and thorough use of the different features offered by Microsoft Excel.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The updates should be more followed and with improvements in the formulas, since in each update some of the names of the functions change, as well as continue to offer improvements in other features. It should be evaluated that the files generated by the user occupy less memory inside the computer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I perform accounting, payroll and database calculations with the program. In particular, in my work as a teacher, I train students in the program, so they can perform administrative and accounting tasks in the companies where they do the internships. In addition, in excel I keep the record and control of notes and evaluations of my students.

The potential that this software has, multiple pre-established functions or others that can be developed is very wide.

I have almost no cons of this program, because it has been a great help for many years. Maybe, it would be just how slow the computer can turn when you run a very large macro, but that's mostly because of the ability of the PC

Recommendations to others considering the product

"Tabulating accounting information through the excel tool."

What do you like best?

What I like most about Excel is that it allows me to create graphs and arithmetic operations, in addition to allowing me as a user, to customize my calculation sheets adjusted to my own needs. If I use creativity, the tool allows me to use styles so that the information is not boring. I have learned to get the most out of the tool to obtain the desired accounting results. It allows me to contain numeric, alphanumeric, text, etc. data in each of the cells, to make a calculation sheet.In particular, the templates that posse the application allow me to save time, speeding up the work to be done.

What do you dislike?

What I do not like about excel is that it is only compatible with windows and mac, if I wanted to use it with another application like linux or another, I could not use it. I have made tabulations with dates back to the year 1900 and I have found that it is insufficient, or falls short.

I must admit that you need to take training courses to get the most out of the tool to achieve the expected result.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend excel because it saves us time, money and effort, speeding up any type of work that allows the maximum performance and the highest productivity.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Each version that comes onto the market has allowed me to do fewer operations, performing more functions and operations for my organization. If we know the tool, it will be very useful for any area of ​​work. It is a practical and effective tool.

"Most advanced tool for budgeting and data entry projects."

What do you like best?

What I like best about this platform is that it is easy to install and use.

For that reason, it does not require much training to be a pro. Only a little effort and you are in a better situation to produce professional spreadsheets.

What do you dislike?

While there are several cheap versions, getting a genuine Microsoft Excel is not free. I think it would be much better if they would reduced the subscription fee to get a cloud-based version of Excel.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would highly recommend Microsoft Excel for creating more visually dynamic reports. Also, to make calculations easier, I would recommend this advanced tool since it suits all calculations needs of any organization.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Microsoft Excel, we have been in a better situation to organize large amount of data into logical spreadsheets in our company. Also, ever since we integrated Microsoft Excel, we have been able to maintain conducive working environment since there are no papers in our offices. Personally, Excel helped me to compute complex equations in campus.

"Greatest software for any business."

What do you like best?

Excel is the best spreadsheet software available, and in my opinion is the most important software for any company. It has so many pre programed functions that help in almost every need from finance calculations to engineering data management, and if that wasn't enough it has the freedom to be programmed for customization just by having a little VBA knowlegde. It's graphs are beautiful and every year they get better, it's text editing functions save lots of time. I'ts just a jack of all trades

What do you dislike?

There is no big con to microsoft excel, perhaps the fact that when running a macro it can take a lot of processing power for them to run correctly, but it depends on the complexity of the code.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend using it, giving it some time to learn all functions it provides and also learning some VBA programming to fully use all of its potential

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Excel has helped us in every department, in human resources it has allowed to create customer and personnel databases, in engineering we have made several important calculations and vba based programs, and overall it is the software that has generated the biggest profit for the company.

"Clunky but powerful"

What do you like best?

There's no doubt Excel is powerful software and can do a lot more than Numbers (such as scripting), but if I'm being honest, I much prefer using Numbers whenever possible.

What do you dislike?

It doesn't feel like at all like a Mac app, and that's to its detriment, in my opinion. Formatting is more difficult than it should be. Pretty much everything is more difficult than it should be. Many hotkeys that work in every other Mac app don't work in Excel, such as ⌘Left-Arrow and ⌘Right-Arrow for moving the cursor to the beginning and end of line, respectively. If you're going to make a Mac app, you should respect global hotkeys in macOS, in my opinion.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look into using Numbers unless you need very advanced features, in which case Excel may be a better fit.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Generating reports. Helps our team at Apple see our productivity in numbers.

"From basic spreadsheets to bottomlessly deep analytics "

What do you like best?

One of the most powerful office oriented software packages ever developed, Excel can help you create anything from very basic spreadsheets, simple calculations and basic math operations, to the most advanced, macro heavy, user designed, company tailored analytical, text, operational, graphing or programming tools.

Unmatched availability in pretty much every platform that could use one, Universal reach to the point thousands of products & equipment (that would benefit from it) export their data or support input as Excel compatible files.

What do you dislike?

Easily the less intuitive package in the Microsoft Office family, some very basic options and formatting sets don't work the same as they do seamlessly in Word & other software from the family.

Unnecesary bloat and resource use in later versions like most of the recent products in the Office family; an older version might suit the needs of an older computer.

Pricing could be lower.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider older versions that won't be as resource heavy, or space bloated if needed for older machines.

Browse for tutorials online or advanced features.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Everything from basic homework, personal spreadsheet use, advanced data tracking, complex logistics macros and software, integrations with diverse machines for data interpretation & graphs.

"The depth of this program knows no bounds"

What do you like best?

The sheer amount of items this program can do for spreadsheet layout is immense. I once used this to figure out an entire month's transactions because how well the formulas work. It can be editable to a very high degree. Plus it can be used to make templates for others in your company/field which is very handy if you have people who've never used it or aren't that experienced at it.

What do you dislike?

The unforgivingness of it. One mistake can cost the entire formula (as is to be expected) but when you're working to finish at closing time and accidentally hit too many 3's causing the whole thing to go wonky. Yeah, that can be frustrating. (The multiple times it's happened to me)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Learn how the formulas work and keep that knowledge somewhere. It will come in handy at some point. Also, don't take it for granted but don't be afraid of it either. It can be scary but just take it slow and you'll get it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A veritable all-in-one for accounting and other business needs, it also can help keep lists or scores (for trivia games)

"Always the best"

What do you like best?

You can pretty much do everything you want with Excel. We create customer list, filter them, program using visual basic, have complex sheets linked together in order to simplify data entry process, forms, list management, etc.

What do you dislike?

Nothing is intuitive with Excel, you have to learn everything. The difficulty to learn such a program is pretty high, but it is something that is valuable and that doesn't change. By example, if you learn Excel in 1997, everything that you learned would still be valid in 2018 except for the location of some buttons, functionalities,

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take a class, you need to know the base before using it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it mostly to keep customer list, mass mailing, complex visual basic, searching in long product list, make inventory and inventory that update itself as we programmed it.

"Still the Best Around for Spreadsheets!"

What do you like best?

MS Excel is a great product. I've used it since middle school and still use it today for my professional career. It is pretty simple to use and an easy way to quickly store, re-call, sort, and display information. The fact that they teach it to kids and its a software that adults still use is a great testment to the broad ability for many people to use this software.

What do you dislike?

Often times little bugs develop. Usually these go away by shutting the software down or restarting but they do occur.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There is not a better spreadsheet software out there get this one.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tracking labor, equipment, machines. Performing cost estimates. Using them to create forms and a plethora of other things.

"A powerful analytical tool"

What do you like best?

It's powerful, flexible, and intuitive. Even with access to dedicated analytics platforms, much of the work is still done in Excel. Heck, sometimes all of it is. What I especially like is the ability to create rich content, which can be updated easily via VBA and database connections.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I dislike is trying to convince novices to use it. I don't really understand the anxiety towards Excel by some. It really makes no sense. the tool is powerful, and easy to learn the basics.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For some, there is a bit of a learning hump, but any good analyst will tell you Excel is an invaluable tool for any data driven department/organization. We use office 365, which is a great choice, if you want to always have the latest implementation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it to determine which products are performing, and where. We also use it to determine what we should be doing in the future, and where to put our marketing dollars.

"Excel is old faithful, cannot run accounting or a business without it"

What do you like best?

Excel has very powerful functions. With some cool use of Vlookups, it allows us to extend our accounting system and ensure transactions do not fall through the cracks.

What do you dislike?

it would be great if you could pull in multiple spreadsheets onto a single screen like you can with Apple's numbers app. Just a minor dislike however.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You can do literally anything in Excel. With the right person to help, you can almost make a database out of it. It's very versatile and filled in a huge gap in our auditing that we needed. If you are willing to take the time to learn all the functions or watch videos about how to do things the possibilities are unlimited.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

we use Excel to put all our deals in and ensure that all invoices are paid and collected. Our accounting system is solid but we can't get the detailed data entry for each payment into our accounting like we can with Excel. It makes auditing each account far easier.

"Excel is the best spreadsheets software"

What do you like best?

To use Microsoft Excell you don't have to know programming language or how to configurate the software, thanks to the simple interface, is easy to use it. Types your data in cells and columns and use the formulas to integrates your datas. Also Microsoft Excel provide you lot of templates that offers you a good starting point to develop your own work. Is also easy to create charts and manage them in the sheets.

What do you dislike?

One of the worse thing is that there is no real time team work possibility on Microsoft Excel.

Recommendations to others considering the product

On the market you can find many similar software (Open Office suite is for example a free "copy" of it). Google Sheets is near it. But if you want a solid and always professional and good software you have to use Microsoft Excel.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Microsoft Excel helps me to get organized with my tasks about projects. It is also a simple solution for my budgets considerations and for my invoices.

"Necessary for office work"

What do you like best?

I've been using Excel ever since I was in high school, and mostly because I had to. I find it useful for organizing events, budgeting, and sorting data.

What do you dislike?

It's not easy to learn and requires hours of training to understand how to make it work efficiently and how you want it to. There are an incredible amount of functions to make it work perfectly, but - again - takes an effort to remember. Fortunately, you can google that.

The different edit options are buried in odd tabs and - again - requires time to sift through. Basically, everything takes longer than it should and if you're not an avid user, will require you to re-learn each time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If it's not mandatory, then save your money and use google docs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reporting, data input and tracking, client satisfaction tracking, media placement information (sentiment, publication, date, link), link tracking, team's information, budgeting, expense reporting, and more.

"Excellent "

What do you like best?

I like that I can create spread sheets and sync them and can collaborate and share them online it really helps stay organized and helps communication in the workplace! It helps me keep up with any tasks that need to be done. I use it to make spread sheets for documenting plans of care, keeping up with therapist information, make tables to keep up with attendance, creating time sheets and school charge sheets and just staying organized with daily tasks. Its also convenient in that it will do the math for you. Talk about a time and energy saver! I can create custom equations based on information I enter into different cells and then copy and past just the equations over so that each year my report is the same without the need to rewrite the formulas. Excel is really an excellent software and we use it daily in our office!

What do you dislike?

The only problems that I have with this software is that if you want to view the spreadsheet, the computer must have excel installed and it can be hard to learn however with practice you can pick up on it pretty quickly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a great product to make spreadsheets with just takes a little time playing with the software to fully understand all it can do

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using it to stay organized with office work in the clinic. I use it to create spread sheets for school billing, time sheets, mileage sheets, plans of care, keeping up with attendance and therapist information. It definitely helps make my job easier and keeps me organized!

"Simple, Easy to Use for Small Businesses and Startups"

What do you like best?

- Ease of creating and formatting spreadsheets

- Formulae are easy to set up

- Color coding and cell formatting is ideal for project management

- Useful for budgets, project managemenet, and charts/visuals

- Easy to export into other applications like Word, for report presentation

What do you dislike?

There's nothing to dislike about this program. I know companies are making money by creating different spreadsheet/productivity/project management tools, but to my mind, you just can't beat Excel.

In the future, I hope MicroSoft will create one program that incorporates Word, Excel, and other productivity tools -- one program that includes everything. That will reduce the need to import fromone program to another. (And I'm sure that day is coming.) Also, adding a voice recognition/voice activation element to the software will make it more usable for those of us who multitask or like to work while travelling. Again, it's only a matter of time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use it for more than just spreadsheet applications. In one book, you can have a spreadsheet and a project management system. Easy to start using, as basic functionality is clean and simple to learn. You'll be surprised by how much you can do once you dig into the data.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've used Excel for decades, going all the way back to college for my projects. When I taught high school, I used Excel for grading, and taught my marketing students to use it for their advertising projects. When I worked corporate, I utilized it to track budgets, performance goals, and timelines. It can be an excellent project management tool, particularly when used on the cloud.

Now that I am self-employed, it's more important than ever. I have used it to:

- track income and expenses and analyze those figures (see attached screenshot)

- track queries to agents (color coding is especially helpful here)

- create timelines for project completion (project management)

"Life would not be the same without Excel"

What do you like best?

I've a confession to do, I never had a good relationship with numbers. There is more than the spreadsheets. The calculating features are the best and, with a bit of understanding, you learn how to use the expressions there is nothing that you can't do with Microsoft Excel. The interface, divided in sectors, help your work to be organized and fast.

What do you dislike?

It have, as every serious software have, a long term learning curve. But if you use it frequently you can speed up the process. I've to say that the Microsoft customer service sometimes is really bad and slow.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Microsoft Excel is the best software in its field. In the market you can find some "imitations". But probably only Google Sheets it near its perfections. But I always reccomend to use Excel.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Microsoft Excell to keep myself organized. Budget and finance spreadsheets. Data collection, event organization and managment and for customers contact informations. I've to say that 60% of my work with software is on Excel.
