How to create a Google Sheets Dashboard with DronaHQ?

Create a Powerful Google Sheets Dashboard with DronaHQ

If you are into fitness, you probably own a smartwatch. There is a different feeling of fulfillment looking at the watch after a long run. You know how many kilometers you have covered, how many calories you have burnt, and how close or far you are from your goal. In short, it helps you keep track of your progress and let you plan your regime accordingly. 

The same way it is for your business. Knowing your current status and how far along you have come will help you plan your next moves successfully. And you don’t need a smartwatch for that but a business performance dashboard that will allow you to see what is happening in real-time in context with historical data.

  A dashboard gives you a bird’s eye view of the project, enabling users to make data-centric decisions. It visualizes all key metrics to help you track a project’s progress. Dashboards are one of the best tools to extract actionable insights.

Google sheets may be a powerful tool for storing data, but they do not offer any insights or visualization to help owners make business decisions. With DronaHQ, you can build custom dashboards on Google sheets using the drag-and-drop builder in just a few minutes.

Stay tuned to know how you can create a Google sheets dashboard with the help of DronaHQ.

Limitations of Using Google Sheets for Dashboards

Limited automation capacity

You already know how frustrating it can sometimes be to enter every piece of information in the spreadsheet manually. This is because Google Sheets have no automation features. Once a project begins in full swing, it can be hard to function with limited automation capabilities.

Limited integrations

Google sheets offer limited integrations to connect with your favourite productivity tools. The most you can use is a Google extension. Lack of integration capabilities seriously disadvantages you and your team’s productivity.

Not a complete project management tool

Any ongoing project requires a management tool to ensure efficiency, team collaboration, and communication. Google sheets have been a handy tool for small teams or companies, but when it comes to project management on a large scale, it lacks in many areas, including task management, time tracking, communication, and so on.

Limited scalability

Unlike other management tools, Google Sheets does not have the ability to cope with the requirements as the organization grows. It has limited scalability as the number of rows and columns is limited in Google Sheets. Growing and large organizations will have difficulty using it for data visualization and analysis.
