James Spotanski is a Program Manager on the Excel team at Microsoft’s headquarters in Redmond, Washington. He joined the Excel team four years ago and helped release Excel for Android, before continuing on to Excel for Mac and iOS shortly after the release of Office 2016 for Mac. Presently, he’s working to bring intelligence into Excel to empower users to get more done. In this session, James will explain how Excel is embracing the intelligence era, how his product team makes decisions and prioritizes features based on suggestions from their customer feedback channels. He will provide demos of features large and small that were borne entirely out of their customers’ needs in order to simplify and empower their work.
