How to add Google Sheets data to business dashboard

We all know how important the data is to any business. A dashboard is one of the best ways to visualize your data. We at Octoboard see our goal in helping businesses make smart decisions by helping them use data. We have already integrated with over 40 cloud applications and today we add a useful way to share data on a dashboard that comes from Google Sheets.

Google Sheets in Octoboard

It is very important to focus the business on performance and have real figures to monitor it daily. This is why dashboards are key for focusing teams and achieving goals. Octoboard gets data from all products that you use (Social Media platforms, Email Marketing platforms, Finance platforms and more) automatically.

But sometimes it is not enough. We have legacy products and data that is stored in data sheets. With Octoboard you can display your Google Sheets data in a great looking business performance dashboard together with other data sources. You can easily connect to any Google Sheets document and display your data in graphs, pie charts and tables. Octoboard supports the following data types:

  • Single numeric value displays (with optional historic value tracking)
  • Data ranges – displayed in graphs
  • Category data – displayed in pie charts, tables or funnels.

Here is how new Google Sheets integration works in Octoboard.
