The Hero Tools Add-in for Excel is a productivity app that is packed with features that will help save you time with common tasks.
Once the add-in is installed, you will see the Hero Tools tab in the ribbon. The Hero Tools tab contains buttons to open and use the add-in's features. Many of the features can be accessed with keyboard shortcuts and through right-click menus.
Suite of Excel Campus Add-ins
We have bundled all of our existing add-ins into Hero Tools. This means you only need to install one add-in to get all of the existing functionality.
The Hero Tools tab replaces the XL Campus tab. If you have any of our existing add-ins installed and see the XL Campus tab, you can now uninstall those add-ins.
All future updates and new features will be added to the Hero Tools add-in.
