Excel is one of the most versatile tools in the Office suite, but many of its basic functionalities often remain unexplored by users. This workshop will help you unlock the baseline potential that Excel has by introducing you to shortcuts and tools that will allow you to work more efficiently.

By the end of this workshop, participants in this learning opportunity will be able to:

  • Create basic data charts
  • Add illustrations to a spreadsheet and create an organizational chart
  • Protect a worksheet


What to Bring

You will need to have Office 2016 or above installed on your own computer.  Earlier versions will work; however, they will look slightly different than what we will be using.

This session is virtual so please attend with the capability to participate on Zoom and the ability to work with the Excel program simultaneously. A work packet will be provided to participants in advance of the session.


Who Should Attend

People who are beginners with Excel.
