Recruiters, staffing coordinators and managers can simply export data directly from Pointwing into Microsoft Excel for additional analysis and other uses.

Pointwing recruiting software grid formatting for Excel data export

Busy recruiters, staffing coordinators and their managers often have the need to create reports or presentations on the fly for specific purposes. Now, ad hoc reports or presentations like these are even easier to create in the latest release of VCG’s Pointwing recruiting software as end-users can export chosen data directly into Microsoft Excel.

The data export process is simple. First, Pointwing end users perform a search query. The query results are instantly displayed on screen in a customizable grid format. The end user can group, sort and arrange the grid view to suit their needs. The grid can also include custom highlighting to help differentiate rows of data. When the end user is satisfied with the grid’s customization, they can view, print or export all grid data to Microsoft Excel, retaining all of the formatting and highlighting used within the grid. Additionally, the end user can use filters to export a particular subset of the data from the grid. Once the data is in Excel, the end user can further manipulate and analyze it.

Steve Taylor, President and CEO of VCG, said “Pointwing now provides end users in a recruiting or staffing firm a quick, easy way to get and export specific data to create reports or presentations for others that require additional analysis that is only possible in a spreadsheet application such as Excel.”
