It has three thousand times more advantages than the office, since it allows you to share documents online, so that other people can edit them no matter where they are. In addition, all the changes that you make are saved automatically.
As a curiosity Google docs is no longer its official name, since 2012 it was changed to Google drive, when the company of the same name merged the Docs system with the Drive (the latter is the one that stores the data in the cloud).
Make Pivot, Combo, and Line Charts in Google Docs
Now if what you came to, the first thing to start making the graphics you want is to open the Google drive. Once inside you go to the upper left where there is a button that says «New», Press it and it will display a window where you can choose what to do, slide documents, or, as is the case, a spreadsheet.

Once chosen, another tab will open with the sheet. Here it is time to add the data to be used. When we have done it you have to shade or highlight the columns that go in the graph, as a shortcut, just giving the headings of each column selects everything.
It is better to select everything because this graph to be created, it updates automatically every time you add something new to each column.
Then and to finally make dynamic, combined and line graphs in Google Docs, you go to the options bar above and give the option «Insert», here it will display the window where you can choose the type of graph you want.
Choose the correct format
Once your graphic is inserted it is only a matter of editing, you can choose the format you want, since they are completely customizable, it can be dynamic, line or combined, in addition to being able to place the shapes and colors you want.
The tabs that will allow you to edit appear once the graph is inserted (it is best to edit as you work). However, Google Docs is so intuitive that it has a section called «recommendations«If you click there, it will analyze the data entered in the sheet and graph, then it will recommend the model that best fits.
If no recommendation is to your liking, or you simply prefer to do it yourself, select the menu «Types of graphs» and here choose the one that best seems to you. Finally, to edit even more to your liking, right-click on the graph and select «Advanced editing «, here you can change the name, add color, among other very useful variations offered by the application.
As you can see, making dynamic, combined and line graphics in Google Docs is very simple, and the interface is so comfortable, that you will feel like a professional (if you are not already clear), and if you are, then welcome to future.
