The Push API allows you to push data into your dashboards from your own applications. We provide a simple REST API that can be used to push data into your widgets using the JSON data format

☛ Google SpreadSheets / CSV
Utilize the Google SpreadSheets and CSV widgets to custom data. Pull data from any source into a Google SpreadSheets and/or CSV, and utilize the widget to visualize. Google Spreadsheet Widget refreshes data every 5 minutes, while CSV upload data is static.
☛ Private URL
With this widget, you can hook your dashboards up to almost any data source on the web. This is an alternative to our GoogleSheets or CSV Widget. Benefits of using the Private URL widget are: you'll always have a backup copy of your data, users can't accidentally delete your data, you don't have to run crons, and gives you the added flexibility of choosing the chart-type (pie, list, cohort, area, etc.).
