What you will learn…
Do you wish spreadsheets were easy? Learn about PivotTables! A PivotTable is an interactive way to quickly summarize and display large amounts of data. Once you learn how to set up the simple, easy-to-use pivot tables within your own spreadsheets, you can drastically reduce the time spent on farm planning, floral ordering, and analyzing crop yields.
In this webinar, Emily Patrick of Carolina Flowers will show attendees how she builds simple databases and uses pivot tables to analyze them. It IS possible to count every stem, and knowing crop yields unlocks incredible possibilities for pricing and future planning. She will also explain how they collect data at the farm and how to build these processes into employee position descriptions. Lastly, she will explain how Carolina Flowers creates databases to provide insights into floral recipes and plug buying. PivotTables are so easy, so powerful, and so little-known.
