Google announced the integration of the chart editor into Google Sites. Now you can display charts in your Sites by going to Insert Menu and choosing Charts in edit mode, revealed Google.

Google notes, "Changes made to charts in Sites are independent to the specific chart, so the same spreadsheet data can be applied across multiple charts."

Hillel Maoz, Software Engineer explains, "Once you select a spreadsheet, the editor picks existing charts from the spreadsheet to embed into a Site.

You can also create a chart by specifying the sheet and range and customize the chart by changing various properties such as color, axes, labels and more. Choose which chart type best expresses your data or let the chart editor recommend one for you."

You can decide to choose between two modes Live and Snapshot to show the data.

  • "Live provides you with dynamic charts. Whenever the chart is loaded in the Site, the chart will display the most recent data in the spreadsheet. This is very useful in cases when the spreadsheet data is updated manually or using a script.
  • Snapshot means just that. It's a snapshot at a point in time, so the chart will store and display the exact same data, regardless of whether you make changes to the underlying data sheet," explained Maoz.
