Course Description

Excel offers payroll professionals many features and functions that can improve the accuracy and efficiency of payroll production. In this comprehensive course, Excel expert David Ringstrom, CPA, explains: mathematics for employee timesheets, date and time formatting and stamping, conditional formatting to highlight HR requirements, password protection for sensitive payroll files and worksheets, salary information formatting, using pivot tables for HR reporting and analysis tasks, and more.

David demonstrates every technique at least twice: first, on a PowerPoint slide with numbered steps, and second, in the subscription-based Microsoft 365 version of Excel. David draws your attention to any differences in the older versions of Excel (2019, 2016, 2013, and earlier) during the presentation as well as in his detailed handouts. David also provides an Excel workbook that includes most of the examples he uses during the webcast.

Microsoft 365 is a subscription-based product that provides new-feature updates as often as monthly. Conversely, the perpetual licensed versions of Excel have feature sets that don’t change. Perpetual licensed versions have year numbers, such as Excel 2019, Excel 2016, and so on.
