There's a story behind every Excel spreadsheet. Be your data storyteller.

Why Excel?

It doesn’t take much to see why Excel remains so popular. Microsoft’s tool puts data to work in the form of formulas, offering a simple and static interface for teams of all kinds to use.

An Excel dashboard is the perfect match.

There’s a but. Storing and playing with numbers in a static spreadsheet isn’t enough. Data needs to be shared. Without sharing, you’re stuck in your workbook with a confusing mess of numbers in rows, columns and tables. The beauty of an Excel dashboard is that it presents your data in an open and clean format that makes sense to you and the people on your team.

How Klipfolio Works With Excel

Quickly connect your Excel Data

Klipfolio offers a built-in integration with Excel. That means that connecting your data to your dashboard is as simple as finding the Excel spreadsheet you choose to put to work.

How cool is that?

Using Excel functions in Klipfolio

Use what you know from Excel

Functions

You’ve probably spent a lot of time memorizing the functions process in Excel. We have good news, your time has not gone to waste.

Klipfolio manipulates your data with similar functions to the ones you know and love already: array, count, group, reference, slice and sort formatting, among others.

Klipfolio has also made it easier to make these functions manipulate your data in the exact ways you want them to. The best part? You won’t have to provide and apply functions over and over again; you can setup Klipfolio to automatically update your data or simply do it yourself without creating new spreadsheets.

Cells

The cells you’re familiar with using to organize your data in an Excel spreadsheet are virtually the same as the ones you’ll be using in Klipfolio’s Editor.

When you connect Excel to Klipfolio, your data stays the same - right where you left it. Oh and did we mention that if you want to create a pivot table, we’ve eliminated almost all of the steps to do it.

Tabs

Navigating through your data isn’t always easy, especially when you have multiple spreadsheets in one file.

Since you already know how to setup your data with tabs, Klipfolio takes this capability one step further allowing you to organize each component of your KPIs in three simple tabs: data, properties, and indicators.

This way you won’t find yourself in a sea of functions, but can still get around the way you know best.

Integrate with 300+ data sources

Want to compare numbers from Excel with your Google Analytics data in the same chart?

With Klipfolio, you can do that!

A Klipfolio dashboard can also pull in numbers from other channels, such as Google AdWords or LinkedIn ads. No more opening Excel files then logging into your social media and analytics platforms to check in on your performance.

Everything you need is in one place.
