Graphs are a great way to visualize data, and Google Sheets makes creating them a breeze. In this article, we’ll show you how to create a basic line graph in Google Sheets, and how to customize it to fit your needs.
Setting up your Google Sheet
Assuming you already have a Google account (if you don’t, setting one up is easy – visit google.com and click “Sign In” in the top-right corner), open up Google Drive (drive.google.com) and create a new Sheet by clicking on the “+New” button in the top-left corner and selecting “Google Sheets”.
Now it’s time to start adding some data to your Sheet! In each cell, you can enter text, numbers, or formulas. For our purposes, we’re going to focus on adding numbers to create a basic graph.
Start by entering some labels for your data in cells A1 and B1 – something like “Date” and “Sales”, for example. Then, in cell A2, enter the first date you want to track. In the cell below that (A3), enter the next date. Continue adding dates down column A until you have a good amount of data – at least a few weeks’ worth.
In column B, next to each date in column A, enter the corresponding sales figures. So, if your first date was January 1st and you sold 10 items that day, you would enter “10” in
