Common Questions

What happens if I update the data on Google Spreadsheet?

Your data will not automatically be updated. Should there be any changes to your data, you will need to open the Piktochart Editor, unlink the chart and link your updated chart again following the steps under Import from Google Sheets and ensure that you have successfully Saved your visual.

  • If your visual is published on the web via , the data will be updated when you refresh the page.
  • If you download your visual as an image or PDF, you'll need to open the Piktochart editor and download a new copy of the visual. 

How do I modify my data after importing it to Google Spreadsheet?

When your data is imported from the Google Spreadsheet, you may only modify the data on the Google Spreadsheet alone. It is not possible to modify the data on Piktochart. This is to maintain consistency so the data is always available in one place.
