Tips & tricks for actionable reporting in Excel & PowerPoint

No more time spent on hacking #Excel to make the charts look good. Now with one click & boom! voilà! ⚡⚡ THANK YOU for developing this for the huge community of Excel users! - Carlos Barboza, Guerilla Data Analyst

Excel is still the #1 BI tool used for business reporting. A controversial statement, one would say.  

But the reality is that Excel is everywhere. Flexibility, ease of use, and low entry barriers are just some of the benefits that are making Excel a ‘here-to-stay' tool.  

However, for the most part, reports in spreadsheets or slides still don’t follow modern reporting best practices. This is not just a design problem, but it can actually cost you a lot of money if people don’t get the right business insights in seconds. This means you’re wasting their time (and, well, money).  

Staying agile in uncertain times is crucial. Having a single source of truth across your entire stack (Power BI, Excel, and/or PowerPoint) can save hours of work and advanced visualizations with additional context give you an immediate understanding of the performance.  

This is what you’ll get by using Zebra BI for Office. With only one click you can unlock business insights instantly and deliver just the right information to everyone. The best part? You can do that either in Excel, PowerPoint, or Power BI. Transform your reporting and stay on top of your performance at all times. 

You'll Learn: 

How to create small multiples from a simple pivot table in Excel
How to easily create advanced P&L, variance analysis, cash flow analysis, and more!
How to add additional context to your data using automatically calculated variances & dynamic comments
How to combine Power BI, Excel & PowerPoint to get the most out of your data.

Our financial landing page at KPN is completely based on the sales dashboard template. We also use a copy of the consolidated financials. The templates of Zebra BI are providing us with a lot of inspiration, and we don't "need to invent the wheel" again 😉

I've recently been experimenting with Zebra BI's custom Table visual, which is like the native Power BI matrix on steroids. If your work allows for the use of custom visuals, I think it's definitely worth checking out. Planning on doing a video on it soon...

I had a phone interview for a #PowerBI contract, where the interviewer said of the sample dashboards in my CV: "Great...I see you use @ZebraBI!" How cool is that? And they mentioned my top-secret passphrase on the call: "Actionable Insight". I'm in.

The reusable trick of switch I think is brilliant! And obviously, Zebra BI table replaces any other table now in Power bi. RIP to normal tables!

This visual from Zebra BI enables you to build stunning P&L, CF, and BS statements with complex structures with ease. Very intuitive for developers and users. In my opinion the best solution for Financial Reporting structures. 11 Stars!

As you say, Andrej Lapajne, we spent A LOT, searching and explaining how to do Comments, with Power Apps, and also with the help of Excel. They were workarounds!!! No doubt...this is awesome and the simple way to go forward.
