Add-In for Microsoft Excel

Updated: 08/22/2023|Views: 84349

The Desktop Application (PM) offers a self-service Microsoft Excel Add-in for System Administrators to create customized reports. The Add-in allows you to use Microsoft Excel to analyze your data and build custom reports. Proficiency in Microsoft Excel's use of filters, formulas, pivot tables and graphs is required to use this add-in. To get started, download and activate the Add-in then configure the security settings. 

System Requirements:

  • Windows 8, 8.1, 10, or 11 (not supported by Mac)
  • Microsoft Excel 2007, 2010, 2013, or 2016
    Note: If you are using a previous version of Microsoft Excel, you must upgrade to Microsoft Excel 2007, 2010, 2013, or 2016 before you can use the Add-in.
