New Excel AddIn

Smart Forms

Scrolling Images of drop down, searchable dependant list with multi word multi selection, Intelligent menu, Smart Menu, Smart sheets, Smart Cell Calendar

Click My View Smart Forms will help every-day business users of Excel to work faster, more efficiently and enhance spreadsheet capabilities, with little or no effort.


All Click My View tools are specially designed to help business users of Excel improve productivity.


People who need to complete their work in minimum time, with minimum effort, ideally with just a click or have it automated, plus little or no time to set it up - without any technical skills.


The aim of the tools is to save time, reduce workload and improve the quality of work. This is through tools that are easier to use, work faster and simpler than what is in use, and to introduce more effective methods than those in typical use - such as Dependency Lists.


Most Smart Forms automatically replace standard Excel features, with no setup required, as they have default settings for the most common needs. Activating options typically only takes moments, such as assigning a range name to a drop-down list. 



  • Smart List – replaces Excel drop downs, searchable, multi column display, many options

  • Smart Dependency List – a new approach, much faster and easier than traditional methods

  • Smart Text Edit – a window for cell text editing - with basic formatting, real tabs, bullets, etc.

  • Smart Cell Calendar – no more blindly typing dates – fast selection of the day, month & year

  • Smart Menu -  intelligent menu - click to open workbooks, unhide sheets & cells, run macros

  • Smart Sheets – click to go to any sheet, plus click for fast hiding / unhiding of sheets


The video below provides a quick overview of the Smart Forms

Also Save Time & Effort With Smart Functions

A common step that many users perform on a regular basis is

This single formula can save you a minute or two every single time!

This and other Smart Functions enable manual steps to be easily automated - just use a check box or radio button to trigger the functions!
