Project Details

What We Need
  • Customized Excel Training session(s) over the course of 1-2 days
  • Sessions may be broken up into Beginner, Intermediate, and/or Advanced
  • Sample topics may include: formulas, commonly used functions, autofill, sorting and filtering, freezing, hiding, and grouping, formatting tips, keyboard shortcuts, pivot tables, charting and graphing, print readiness, collaborative work issues, and overall best practices
Additional Details

I do not know how to use the program but it has been asked of me to produce, which I cannot produce. I understand this would be helpful as a non-profit and our grant writing.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have Excel but I do not know how to use it, but it, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have "i don't like this question"... I'm a good communicator, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $4,174 , allowing us to learn a needed skill that is otherwise not budgeted for.

As a non-profit, I think it is an essential skill to have. All 3 of us at this non-profit would like to learn :)
