Although the new Microsoft Excel 2020 Dashboard templates are certainly a great improvement over previous versions, the latest is still incomplete without these powerful widgets. Here is a breakdown of the most significant additions to Excel 2020:
Customizable Applications Icons This option can be selected in the ribbon at the top of the Excel interface. It allows you to change the icons displayed on the right side of the application bar. So for example, if you want to display an icon for PowerPoint, all you have to do is click on the “P” icon and drag it down one level. This can be done from the dashboard as well.
Multiple Charts As a part of customization, the charting capabilities are improved. In this regard, data available for graphing is always available in either all or pdf format, so that there is no need to convert it from excel format to a graphic file, so that you can embed your customized charts directly into your workbook.
Record Audio File To add to the customizable features, recording of voice or audio messages is now made possible in the Dashboard. The new Voice Recognition option enables a more flexible and adaptive recording of messages.
Printer Control If you want to customize the formatting of workbooks and other worksheets, then printer control is a must. In the new version, this functionality is integrated directly into the workbook area. You can take advantage of printer control when you save the workbook, or if you are exporting the workbook to a printer compatible file type.
Remote Access If you have a mobile device like a smart phone or tablet, you can control your work through its screen. The new advanced remote control interface displays all the components available through the connected device and lets you control the dashboard from anywhere in the world.
Calendar and Schedule Keep track of your schedules and tasks easily and keep an eye on them from anywhere in the world. The new Microsoft Excel 2020 Dashboard includes advanced scheduling capabilities like automatic synchronization of appointments with Outlook Express, and the ability to schedule appointments in your calendar from any platform. You can even integrate it with your Outlook account so that the appointments automatically appear on your calendar.
Redesigned Toolbar With the inclusion of shortcut buttons, you will be able to quickly get to the information you need with just a click. Quick access toolbar helps organize and manage your tabs, search, and Outlook tasks.
