Deprecation of Gadgets in Google Spreadsheets

Gadgets are no longer available in Google Sheets. As per our previous announcement, all existing gadgets have been removed.

Users with Gadgets serving as any of the following chart types can find this functionality in charts in spreadsheets. (To insert one of these charts, from the Insert menu, select Chart.)

  • Line chart
  • Area charts
  • Bar charts
  • Column charts
  • Scatter plot
  • Pie charts
  • Motion chart
  • Annotated timeline
  • Sparklines
  • Gauges
  • Table chart
  • Organizational Chart
  • Radar Chart
  • GeoMap chart
  • Combo chart
  • Candlestick chart
  • Tree map

You may also want to check out our Google Apps Script gallery (simply head to the Tools menu and select Script gallery) for examples of charts, dashboards, maps, and a number of other great tools for manipulating and visualizing complex data.

We hope the charting capabilities noted above, in combination with Google Apps Script, will allow our users to continue to edit and present data in unique and robust ways.
