Get insights with Analyze Data

IMPORTANT: Ideas in Excel is now Analyze Data

To better represent how Ideas makes data analysis simpler, faster and more intuitive, the feature has been renamed to Analyze Data. The experience and functionality is the same and still aligns to the same privacy and licensing regulations. If you're on Semi-Annual Enterprise Channel, you may still see "Ideas" until Excel has been updated.
