You are a volunteer for Health Right, a nonprofit company that provides free physical fitness classes to schools that do not have a physical education facility. As part of your duties, you generate weekly reports that detail donation pledge calls placed, as well as pledge dollars received. You also maintain pledge drive agent personal information and manage the thank-you gifts agents receive for volunteering their time. This week you have decided to overhaul your report by updating agent contact information, importing data previously stored outside your old report, implementing a PivotTable using Power Pivot, and utilize Power-Add-Ins to edit and visualize the week’s data.
