Google Drive Custom Widgets

You can now show custom data on your dashboards from Google Drive spreadsheets! These new Google Drive widgets can be used by anyone, including people with free accounts.

The first step is to build your spreadsheet on Google Drive. In this example we're building a custom chart.

Then we'll add a Google Drive widget in Dash. Just choose "Google Drive" from from the Custom widget menu:

After we add the custom chart widget to the dashboard, the widget configuration layer will come up. We'll choose the spreadsheet that we just made from the dropdown.

And here's what our chart looks like. Whenever we update our data on Google Drive, our dashboard will update less than 60 seconds later.

Google Drive widgets were a very popular development request, and we have even more exciting stuff coming soon.
