Somehow like Excel Mini

What do you like best?

You can create charts like in excel for instance - however it is easy and fast to use. ALso there is an API available if you want to use the Chart Tools more professionally and they are free to install and use.

If you combine the Chart Tools functionality with the Google Drive or Google Sheets you gain most benefits.

What do you dislike?

You can start easily with simple charts but when you try to create more complex presentations you will need to have a look at the API to be able to create the charts you need. So overall it seems easy to learn but hard to master and you have to invest more time on it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When you are familiar with excel charts you should try this free tool out. Do not expect the same outcome within the same period of time though, since you might need to invest some time in the chart API.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Well since it is free to use and very fast in installation it will be no problem to install Google Chart Tools ( you do not even have to be admin on your computer to do so). When using Google Drive etc. you can share your files without any hassle.

Review of Google Charts

What do you like best?

Google charts works so well because Google dominates so many other platforms that it is so much more user friendly to use google for all work aspects rather than switching back and form between platforms. Since you only have to embed the application, it makes using Google charts very simple and not time consuming to start. I am sure there are more advanced platforms that can do more with the charts, but for most people Google charts is more the sufficient in satisfying their graphing needs.

What do you dislike?

I spend a decent amount of time looking things up and how to do them. It would be great if it became more user friendly, or if google charts created a youtube account with videos on how to do things people generally have problems with. I think right now, people are used to using excel for creating charts. So it is easier to just use that and not have them done as well than to relearn a new system to do the same things.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would take some time and play around with it to learn what all it can do before trying to use it for something important. Try to watch tutorials and videos online.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use google charts to represent our data collected in experiments. In research, it is important to have simple, easy to read and understand charts and graphs, which can easily be made with Google Charts.

Great UX and value proposition, some customization options are limited

What do you like best?

It just works. Publishing graphical data sets in the past was tedious (many steps to create a "portable" chart, exporting, uploading, inserting, adjusting, etc) and static (in a way that would not adapt gracefully to different screen sizes and resolutions, such as large Retina monitor versus a smartphone). However, Google Charts removes all these frictions and creates beautiful, transportable charts that look good everywhere. Also, if you need to modify the underlying data, it is made easy and straightforward.

What do you dislike?

Some advanced options that are available in desktop productivity suites have deeper options to customize almost any parameter of the chart. In particular, I miss the ability to change the attributes of a single data point (like setting a different market color, size, and/or shape). I normally do this when I want to highlight a particular section of the data.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Frequent and rapid sharing of data sets to a wide audience. No need to install third party visualizers.

Great interactive charts for enhanced web experience!

What do you like best?

They offer thousands of different kinds of charts. You dream it and they have it. On top of that the interactivity of the charts is intuitive. You can make a lot of really high quality graphs in a very short amount of time. I usually make an image of the chart and embed it with the HTML so it shows out as a popup. Very very sleek!

What do you dislike?

You should be comfortable with basic scripting if you want to make us of this. Also it does not let you download the URL therefore its workable only when you are online. Therefore, we have now shifted to using Plotly and AnyChart.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Learn basic scripting before you can take the complete advantage of this tool. Its really powerful and can provide real time intuitive charts if you know a little bit of scripting.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use them to make business plan projections, and analyse and plot a lot of sales and research data.
