Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Goodbye, part of Excel 2013: Working with Charts and Graphs.
- My name is Rich Harrington.…I'd like to thank you for watching this course…on getting more out of Microsoft Excel.…Remember, when it comes to charts and graphs,…it's all about clarity.…The goal is to get the information out there…and make it easy to understand.…I always tell people, keep it simple.…By not adding a lot of bells and whistles,…excessive flourishes, mixing your fonts, or putting in…too many colors, you have a nice clean graphic.…And elegant information that's easy to consume…and clear to the viewer is much quicker…to be understood.…
So, keep it simple, and just build graphs…and charts that people can digest and clearly understand…without spending a lot of time poring over the data.…That's not to say that you can't go deep,…but it's always a good idea to keep it as clean…and elegant as possible,…and you'll increase the comprehension of the end user.…
