Microsoft Lists the successor to Excel

What an outlandish statement, could Excel ever be replaced? Especially for accountants?

Our trainer David is one of Excel’s biggest ambassadors but there are many ways where Excel is ineffective - 2020’s new app aims to fix that. Data input sheets are frequently poorly made with features like “merge cells”, “hide” manual colour coding, inability to summarise with Pivots or SUMIFS, etc.

A better user experience for the person entering data is often prioritised but within that, analysis becomes impossible or very manual.

Launched recently Microsoft Lists (a reimagining of the old SharePoint Lists) is a fantastic tool which aims to fill this void, builders can create a simple and attractive data input sheet which can be edited but stores the data in a robust analysable dataset (that can be further analysed in Excel or otherwise). And, to top it off, Lists allows feats beyond Excel’s capabilities like notifications on changes, multi select drop down lists, images in cells, a form based data input with searchable dropdown lists and other tools.

Can it replace our Excel needs?

David will also showcase updates to Microsoft 365 apps for the month.
