The Analytics Edge Desktop App is a standalone application that brings the capabilities of the Analytics Edge Add-in for Excel to Google Sheets and Excel files on both PC and Mac computers.

The Analytics Edge Desktop App is not an add-in — it is a self-contained application, so it does not require Microsoft Excel or an active Google Sheets session. It runs entirely on your computer, reading and writing to Excel’s XLSX files on your computer, or reading and writing to Google Sheets files in your Google Drive. The focus of the application is to automate the data retrieval and analysis, leaving the formatting and charting for Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets.


After installation, the Desktop App requires that you accept the Software License Agreement and Privacy Policy by entering your email address and clicking Accept. The email address will only be used to associate you with the computer licenses for support purposes.

Trial licenses will be automatically created. The application and each of the connectors are licensed separately, and the current license status can be viewed on the Licenses page.


The Desktop App should automatically assign a trial license for itself, but you may need to open the License page and click Activate buttons for each of the connectors you want to use.

 Opening Files

Existing Excel files can be opened from the File menu > Open Excel File. Browse to the file location and open the file.

For Google Sheets, go to the File menu > Open Google Sheets tab. Click the Account ‘+’ icon to add a new account, and after a successful login, you can navigate your Google Drive to locate the Google Sheets file to open.


Until Google authorizes the application for general use, you will see a security warning page. You need to click the Advanced link (lower left), then click the Go to Analytics Edge Desktop  App (unsafe) link.

A Special Note About Account Logins

With any login in the App, you may be presented with optional items — ALL of these optional items must be checked for the Desktop App to function properly. In all cases, you are authorizing the application installed on your computer, and the resulting security tokens are saved, strongly encrypted, on your computer as well; they are never shared with or accessible by Analytics Edge Inc (the company) or its servers.
