Application requirements (think as simple as user interface as possible)
-user downloads software
-data is stored on their PC so they know it's safe
-user uploads excel data for analysis
-software prompts user to assign their Excel columns as X, Y, Z so user does not have to use a special upload template. They use their Excel files in their layout. (Ease of use)
-data validation is performed on their data (only dates can be in date columns, only dollars in dollar column). Software prompts user to fix or exclude rows that don't have correct data formatting.
-a series of calculations are performed on the data. I will provide calculations.
-the user answers questions using radio buttons, dropdowns, and text boxes.
-a report is generated after user finishes inputs. Report is in PDF.
-Report can be customozed with users logo and markings.
-a graph or chart on report is desired
-would like someone who has experience with 1) pushing updates and 2) using APIs to pull in data from public websites (APIs) like economic data.
This is step 1 of a multi stage project. I do not know how long project 1 scope will take and open to hourly or fixed price.
I will reject automatic proposals.
You will be asked to answer the following questions when submitting a proposal:
1. What programming language would you use to build this tool?
2. Have you ever developed software that lets users input data using Excel?
3. Do you have experience turning Excel formulas into code?
4. Have you ever coded a software to check for updates online and then alert the user an update is needed?
5. How long would it take for you to create this software based on the requirements? Assume the calculations are complex and the volume of datasets the user will upload will be very large.
