If you want to improve on something, the best thing to do is start measuring its performance. This set of Zaps will easily let you track, measure, and improve anything you’d like.

Push Spreadsheet Data to a Dashboard tool

A relatively popular way to collect and store data is via a Google Spreadsheet. But viewing data in a chart isn’t the most friendly. That’s where a handy dashboard tool comes in.

You can use Zapier to send information from new rows or cells in a Google Docs spreadsheet to your reporting platform so you can see how data changes over time.


Post Company Activity to a Dashboard Timeline

Even in a small company there are a lot of things going on. Across sales, marketing, and operations you’ll have multiple people working on different projects at the same time and it can be tough to get even a bird’s eye view of what is happening.

That’s where it can come in handy to funnel company activity to a dashboard timeline.


Track Custom Data in a Dashboard

Want to track custom data in a Dashboard easily? Zapier makes it pretty simple to do either through a Google Spreadsheet or through a webhook for more complicated Zaps.

Check out ways to use Google Sheets and Geckoboard together as a great example of how you can track custom data using Zapier.
