I found a super interesting thread on Twitter and I thought it was worth sharing. Check the 10 web site or apps listed below. There is something for everyone. My favorite one is excelformulabot.com…. (you know I am obsessed with data!) I did not try it yet, but allegedly this app allows you to text or describe the data you want to calculate or extract from Excel, and the app will create an Excel formula for you! I hope you will find this useful or at least entertaining!
Let me know if any of them is your favorite and if you will be using them in your business or in your life! (P.S. I shared the list below for the first time I think in October last year… since then ChatGPT has emerged as a powerful tool that can perform many of the tasks mentioned below).
