In this course, students will learn how to apply conditional logic to data using formulas, which allows for in-depth data analysis. This can mean anything from checking whether ranges of data meet certain criteria, to applying functions to specific categories of the data, to executing functions only under particular circumstances.
Who Should Attend
This course is intended for intermediate users, assuming a fair amount of fluency is navigating the interface and writing formulas. The lessons in this course can be difficult for beginners both conceptually and technically, but all students can benefit from knowing how to work with conditional logic, so this course is encouraged for anyone up to the challenge.
This course aims to help students perform more in-depth, nuanced analysis of their data. Students will learn about a few different types of logical functions and when to use them as well as how to combine logical functions with other functions. By the end of this course, you will be experienced in both applying conditional logic and in writing formulas.
