Are you ever out of the office somewhere and get a paper form you’d like to convert to an Excel sheet on the spot, without waiting to get back to your scanner? Just take a picture of it with your phone! OK, there’s a little bit more to it than that, but not a lot. Once you have the Office app installed, the rest takes only seconds.
Often times what you may consider better indicators of various items, others do not. It is always a good idea to have a way to turn off conditional formatting in whatever program is displaying it. The most obvious I will use here - MS Excel.
