Visuals are important when you need a quick glance at the data. Your staff and community stay engaged longer when information is easily retained and accessible.
Let me share with you how I went from a plain chart to a dashboard that updates in real time!
It is easy to take a simple google spreadsheet and transform it into an interactive chart that updates in real time.
Step 1: Open any existing Google Spreadsheet.
2. Open Data Studios
3. Choose Add Data
4. A selection of GOOGLE CONNECTORS will appear. Click Google Sheets (if applicable to your data source)
5. Locate your spreadsheet from the list.
6. Use the text fields to draw text boxes and select fonts and color options.
7. Select Your Data to Place in your Chart.
8. Share Your Report
I am also thinking about the Schedule Email Delivery option for the future. For some projects, it would be great to see the data either at the beginning or end of each week to see how it changes.
I hope you have enjoyed this short tutorial.
