This week we have announced on Office Blogs the release of 3 new Excel templates that harness advanced data analytics technologies in Excel 2016:
- Power Query (Excel 2016 new get-data and transformation features that are available in the Get & Transform section of the Data tab).
- Power Pivot measures.
You are welcome to try out the new templates and examine their queries and DAX formulas. The templates are available in File –> New section of Excel 2016.
If you can’t find the template in File –> New, you can download it from TechNet Gallery here.
In this series we will walk through the Calendar Insight template that I created using the Exchange connector in Power Query.
To learn how to use the template go here.
In this coming series we will discuss the following topics:
- Use Data –> New Query –> From Other Sources –> From Exchange Server to import your calendar data.
- Tips and tricks to handle recurring meetings.
- Use DAX to calculate the percentage of time spent on meetings.
- Take the template to its next level and create new dimensions like meeting categories.
- Import the data to Power BI and use custom visuals to create cool data visualizations.
Looking forward to seeing you here for the next blogposts of this series.

Hey Gil, I just stumbled upon your sight in search of a new ‘calendar analytics’ version back from outlook2010.
I found your tool, after some trouble downloading it. (had to use edge browser) / chrome didnt work. i wanted to sign in. After 5 failed attempts I figured i just write you. Error message: authentication was not possibile. try it again.
(freely translated from german)
Thanks in advance.
Hello Gil, after reading a bit more i found out that I do not have that many options to import data from. Here is my list:
from a table, from web, from microsoft query, from OData-Datafeed, from ODBC, from OLEDB.
Do you have any hints for me how i can include the microsoft exchange querry?
Thanks in advance. Markus
Which license do you have? With Office Pro Plus you should get all the connectors.
