The new Excel 2016 functions are shown below:

Function name Category Description
IFS Logical Checks whether one or more conditions are met and returns a value that corresponds to the first TRUE condition.
SWITCH Logical Evaluates an expression against a list of values and returns the result corresponding to the first matching value. If there is no match, an optional default value may be returned.
FORECAST.ETS Statistical Returns a future value based on existing (historical) values by using the AAA version of the Exponential Smoothing (ETS) algorithm
FORECAST.ETS.CONFINT Statistical Returns a confidence interval for the forecast value at the specified target date
FORECAST.ETS.SEASONALITY Statistical Returns the length of the repetitive pattern Excel detects for the specified time series
FORECAST.ETS.STAT Statistical Returns a statistical value as a result of time series forecasting
FORECAST.LINEAR Statistical Returns a future value based on existing values
MAXIFS Statistical Returns the maximum value among cells specified by a given set of conditions or criteria
MINIFS Statistical Returns the minimum value among cells specified by a given set of conditions or criteria.
CONCAT Text Combines the text from multiple ranges and/or strings, but it doesn’t provide the delimiter or IgnoreEmpty arguments.
TEXTJOIN Text Combines the text from multiple ranges and/or strings, and includes a delimiter you specify between each text value that will be combined. If the delimiter is an empty text string, this function will effectively concatenate the ranges.
