Google seems to be rolling out improvements to Google Spreadsheets like there's no tomorrow. Or like there's no Microsoft Office tomorrow anyway. When you click the little chart icon in the Google Spreadsheets toolbar, you now get a whole slew of charts and other gadgets
to choose from in addition to the pie, bar, and line charts that Google introduced a while back.
The new gadget gallery includes:
- Tables and pivot tables
- Maps and heatmaps
- Google web and image searches for selected values
- Organization charts
Users can also create their own custom gadgets using the Google Gadgets API. In non-chart/gadget news, Google has also added the option to receive email notifications when someone changes a spreadsheet, and a variety of other bug fixes and feature enhancements including improved sort, filter, and unique functions.
