Will Cascade run on my Computer?
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 MS Office 2016 or 2019.
The recommended platforms for Cascade are;
Windows with Excel 2019 or 2016
or Mac with Excel 2019 or 2016
Office 2011 for Mac is no longer supported by Microsoft and Office 2010 for Windows is in Extended (limited) support.
Cascade uses a wide variety of functions within its macros to automate its processes. Hence requiring a full version of Excel. Numbers, Google Sheets, OfficeLive 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.
- Office 365 – An annual subscription where you are kept up to date with the latest version of Office.
What are coaches saying about Cascade?
As a coach, Cascade saves me tremendous time and allows me to create extremely professional binders for attendees. Best yet, support is proactive, helpful, and consistent with new releases. Absolutely delivers very high value.
I cannot speak highly enough of my experience with Richard Sterry and this remarkable tool he has created for Strengths coaches. I am able to provide stronger and more visually impactful data to my clients and in less time than when compiling information myself prior to using the program. I am especially excited about the name badge tool! When I hit a learning hurdle, Richard was incredibly quick to respond and helped me achieve the exact look I wanted for my badges. Cascade pays for itself after the first use, and then some.
