  • There are a few things that should be simple that are cumbersome like data blending can be painful to get right and details like totals on top of stacked bars
  • Formatting does not carry over from sheet to sheet and styles cannot be universally applied to a single visualization much less a dashboard -- lots of repetitive manual work to style things visually
