Open Sharesight reports directly in Google Sheets

by Angela Thompson, Senior Digital Marketing Manager, Sharesight | Dec 7th 2015

Following on from our update to provide reports in OpenXML format, we have additionally enabled support for opening reports directly in Google Sheets, where you can edit them online. These documents are automatically stored in your Google Drive account, where you can access them again in future.
