Excel RainMan: Teach Yourself Excel Shortcuts in No Time|
Today is an historic day for The Levo League on many fronts. One of them is our new collaboration with our friend Jen Portland over at Excel RainMan (meet her here). Excel RainMan’s mission is simple: to teach professionals to maximize their experience with Excel. Here’s one of their best posts yet– and here’s to many more illuminating lessons from Jen and Excel RainMan!
A Keyboard Shortcut Explosion
(see our blog post Cheat Sheets AND love in this Trunk Club if you are freaking out and are wondering why you don’t have them in your life).
I am convinced that the founders (Jan Mechtel and Matthias Mayrock) of the Berlin startup KeyRocket (www.veodin.com) have been reading my diary. After all, using a mouse or a trackpad just seems so archaic these days. And while spreadsheeters everywhere heart the Excel Rain Man cheat sheets for the fab shortcut love that they provide, wouldn’t it be nice to consistently receive subtle reminders of what and how you could be doing things a little faster while you are in an Excel workbook? We are good… but unfortunately we can’t be watching over you at all times like a little “efficiency nerd angel”. Enter KeyRocket.
Imagine every time you do something in Excel for which you could have used a Keyboard Shortcut, an adorable little pop-up appears letting you know which keyboard shortcut could have been used as an alternative to your current (JV) way of spreadsheeting.
Contain yourself… it gets better.
When you use a Keyboard Shortcut, KeyRocket realizes your good deed, and shows you the love:
Once you use a certain Keyboard Shortcut 10 times, KeyRocket automatically registers that you have mastered it and knows to “back up off you” regarding that shortcut.
Whether you are Excel nutz or a clutz (or putz), the robust database of Keyboard Shortcuts included in KeyRocket will rock your world! So, if you want to dominate efficiency and get a pat on the back at the same time (who doesn’t love compliments), then you must download KeyRocket today!
KeyRocket is available for the PC 2007/2010 versions of Excel as well as Word, PowerPoint and Outlook. You can download access to all 4 Apps free for non-commercial use. For commercial use, it is a mere $5 per month. Truth be told, while I am fiercely loyal to Excel, thanks to KeyRocket, my Outlook and PowerPoint skills are now “off the chain” as well!
