Migrate Settings from Legacy Add-ins

This page contains step-by-step instructions for migrating your settings from your existing (legacy) add-ins that appear on the XL Campus ribbon and then disabling the XL Campus tab.

Navigate to the “About” section in the Settings menu and click the “Migrate Settings” button.

You will see a new window that lists the legacy add-ins that you currently have installed. Click the checkboxes for the add-ins that you want to import into Hero Tools. Then click Submit

Select add-ins to migrate legacy settings in Hero Tools Add-in for Excel

Your settings will be copied to Hero Tools. You can close the Settings window and check the various feature windows in Hero Tools to make sure your settings were migrated.

Disabled Legacy Add-ins

After migrating the settings, you can disable the legacy add-ins.

Navigate to the “About” section in the Settings menu and click the “Disable Legacy Excel Campus Add-ins” button. Follow the prompts to disable the add-ins.

Once the legacy add-ins are disabled you will no longer see the XL Campus tab in the ribbon. You might need to completely close and re-open Excel for the changes to take effect.

Note: The Quarter Sum Formulas and IFs Filter add-ins have not been migrated to Hero Tools yet. Therefore, you will still see the XL Campus tab if you have either of those add-ins installed. We will be migrating those add-ins in the future.
