We all know how to use simple column and bar charts in Excel, but do you know how, when and why to use less common charts such as the bubble chart or a heat map? In recent years Microsoft has created a much broader range of charts and visualisations for you to choose from. These new options, along with the classic suite, allow you to tell the story of your data.

This course will enable you to make the most of the tools at your disposal, understanding what makes a good or bad chart and how to create effective data visualisations. From the basics of how to add and amend charts and apply templates to them, through commonly used charts and formatting options, to some of the less common charts that will really mark you out as an expert.
