What the chart means

This chart shows the average time a user spent in Gmail, Docs, Sheets, and Slides, so you can check if it's what you expect. Use the team filter selection to reveal time patterns from team to team.

The chart doesn't necessarily show an increase or decrease of Google Workspace usage over time. Rather, it shows the relative time spent using each app.

How the data is calculated

The amount of time spent using an app is divided by the total amount of time spent in Google Workspace.
