Will Cascade run on my Computer?

< Back

The recommended platform for Cascade is Microsoft Excel.

Cascade runs on Microsoft Excel for Windows or Excel for Mac. It uses several advanced features within Excel to bring a seamless and visual package. Cascade works best with Microsoft 365 or Office 2016, 2019.


The recommended platforms for Cascade are;
Windows with Excel 2019, 2016 or Microsoft 365
or Mac with Excel 2019, 2016 or Microsoft 365


Earlier versions of MS Office are no longer fully supported by Microsoft.

Cascade uses a wide variety of functions within its macros to automate its processes. Hence requiring a full version of Excel. NumbersGoogle SheetsOfficeLive and LibreOffice do not support the features necessary. Several of the graphical elements distort and a few of the critical functions are not available. We do not recommend using Cascade on these platforms.

Excel Online does not support macros so Cascade does not function properly with Excel Online.

Which version of Office should I get?

When purchasing Excel, search for ‘MS Office’ and there are usually some good deals around. The two different options for MS Office are;

  • Office 2019 – A one time fee where you stay on 2019 until you choose to purchase the next version.
  • Microsoft 365 – An annual subscription where you are kept up to date with the latest version of Office.
What are coaches saying about Cascade?

Spectacularly Useful  

I've only just started using these tools and I'm thrilled with how helpful it has been. Being able to sort and filter using top 5 or top 10 on the Enhanced Team Grid has streamlined my communications to targeted groups, including using the summary number of top strengths in each domain. I'm looking forward to using the other sheets as well in team sessions. Brilliant!

Incredible tool!  

I'm relatively new to coaching and very new to Cascade, and already, I can see what a huge impact this will make on those I coach. I am stunned by all of the tools Cascade provides and the myriad ways I can tweak data and bring my coaching to the next level. Richard is also extremely generous with his time and expertise, and he graciously walked me through each section so I can use it most effectively. I am so excited about this product!
