Excel // Unhide multiple tabs at once

OK. So maybe "life-changing" is overstating it slightly. But still - this is long overdue. And sometimes in life, it's the little things that make all the difference.

Tech // GRID launches out of beta

P.S. Grid CEO Hjalmar Gislason writes regularly on Medium about modelling, software, and innovation. See this article for example - "if you understand the model, you understand the deal".
