Hey Product Hunters, Great to be here again. Since the last time, thanks to all the amazing feedback from you, we’ve done a lot of updates. This time, we’re excited to introduce one of our biggest updates -- Excelchat Slack Bot. You’ll get the first session for FREE, so go ahead try and we cannot wait to hear feedback from you. To briefly introduce again, Excelchat offers the fastest way to get your Excel or Google Sheets problem solved. Why search or wait in a forum for hours without guaranteed solution? With Excelchat, you can get your sheets solved within 20 minutes, from conditional formatting, error checking to power queries and pivot tables. With our Excelchat Slack Bot, you can connect to an Expert right in Slack without leaving your favorite team communication environment. All it takes is 3 simple steps. POST -- Simply write the command /excelchat to get started. Describe your sheet problem and attach your Excel file or Google Sheets link if available. CONNECT -- Connect to the best Expert within 30 seconds. CHAT -- Live chat with the Expert. Collaborate right on your sheet to see the solution in real-time. Data privacy is our top priority. Each and every question or file uploaded is encrypted. Plus, another big update is data obfuscation. If your file is detected with sensitive information like SSNs or credit card numbers, they will be masked before sending to any Expert.
Hey Product Hunt,   I wanted to let you know about ExcelChat!, which has the potential to make anyone an Excel master. Please check it out and let me know what you think.   ExcelChat! is offering a way for students and professionals to receive help with their Excel problems, just by uploading the Excel sheet at hand. However, unlike automated assistance tools, ExcelChat! connects users with a tutor who then responds directly with customized answers and explanations.   To use the website, users simply upload their Excel sheet and hit send, optionally typing in additional information that will help their tutor answer the question. They also assign the question to the error message that they are getting, which aids in matching their request with the right tutor. Within seconds a tutor will respond with an in-depth explanation and at the end he will disclose the answer. The user can view how the expert is solving the problem and can ask questions if he needs further clarification. Currently, the website is totally free and experts are available from 9AM to 12AM (PST).
@thecreativchris Hi guys, interesting concept, can see a lot of people needing this service. Btw. you should probably add time zone information to the "Experts will be available between 09:00am and 11:59pm" text.
@harzzn Hey Harri, thanks a lot for the feedback. We will implement that 👍 I hope you give it a try today, our experts are live now.
Love the concept. A few more things I'd like to know from the landing page before signing up or feeling good about sharing this with friends: *How long does the typical response take? Are we talking minutes, hours, or days? *Who are the experts? What experience do they have? *Examples of common projects/problems you can help with
@dannysauter Hello Danny, thanks a lot for your feedback 🙌 Please find the answers below. If you have any more questions/concerns just let me know, happy to help out. 1. You get connected to an expert within seconds and the expert delivers the full explanation in approximately 10 minutes. It depends on the complexity of the problem but we’ve designed the product so that most questions are fully explained in a 10-minute chat session. The whole process is live, so you can see how the expert is solving the problem. 2. The experts are specialists with Excel, we have a very thorough on-boarding process and we make sure they are able to deliver great explanations. 3. Our experts are able to help with anything Excel related including: #NAME, #VALUE, #REF! errors... Give it a try and you will experience the magic 🎉
@thecreativchris I like the concept. You have some front end bugs on the website for Safari. I can send some screenshots
