How To Improve Excel
Microsoft 365 had made several promises regarding the integration of major tools such as Office 365, Windows, Azure and security tools. Building this bridge would be possible by extending desktop tools and cloud support. Moreover, one of the most popular software to think of is Excel with its new Excel functions.
Creating custom Excel functions
JSON description, which is the metadata for a custom function, links Excel to the code. It helps you to autocomplete functions, offer custom options and define the parameters sent to the function. It is followed by XML manifest to show the files associated with custom functions.
One interesting idea is to stream the results into a cell automatically. It means that the content can update on its own. Any streaming function will need to be cancellable. As a result, Excel spreadsheet integrated into a streaming custom function, which is an open opportunity for improving any business process. A customizable dashboard uses that new Excel function in custom and built-in visualizations.
Microsoft Excel is progressing with the integration of new custom functions that facilitates the business processes. Due to its capability to reach out to cloud services and machine learning, which we will discuss in the next editions, the new Excel shapes new technological opportunities for the future.
