TSChatWise — A Google Chat Education Tool

I like shortcuts! I’m in constant search of what I deem to be the most simple, efficient and effective shortcuts. I consider any tool, system or methodology which helps me streamline workflow and save precious time a shortcut.

As one of the only technologists in a family of CPAs I’m always seeking ways to participate in the discussion. So when the topic of using Benford’s Law as a risk assessment tool recently surfaced in conversation I decided to develop a custom macro to automate the analysis inside Google Sheets.
