VO Workshop: Excel 101

mai 24, 2018, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Excel 101Everybody needs to use numbers to do analysis. Whether you are tracking volunteer hours, counting donor dollars, or planning spending for the month, you need to keep track of numbers and use them to plan for the future. Excel can be used to conduct planning, manage budgets, create charts, analyze usage data, and keep records.

Take this workshop if you only use Excel's most basic functions. You will learn ways to store and manipulate data, to help you make decisions and report to your manager or your board.

Afterward, you will likely find that your newfound skills allow you to save hours every week that you used to spend scratching your head over a calculator, freeing you up to do what you really love.
