Report automation can deliver powerful, time-saving results. This course teaches analytics professionals to automate the creation of PowerPoint packs from input Excel workbooks using R. Time is allotted for students to implement techniques taught so that, by the end of the course, students will have wrangled input data, created plots and tables, defined a PowerPoint template, and built a sample set of slides.
