It is very easy to share and integrate data across teams. Formatting can be a bit of a challenge as I mentioned earlier, but once you get over the learning curve, it is easy to use. It easy for teams to use because even if you are not the most technological person, you don't have to spend much time figuring out how to use the program. So, it is appropriate for all levels of experience.

As i have mentioned earlier the Google chart helps to represent the data in different formats like histogram, pie chart etc., just provide the data which is to be represented and provide the groups in which they are to be represented. Its a user friendly and provides ease for sharing the data across team and also with others. The data are distributed in different groups and are represented diagrammatically

Single sign on in Google, and you can provide edit and view access, or just commenting ability to users. Individual sheets can be protected, whether they are specific ranges of cells, or whether you just need a warning to be presented to any user who attempts to edit particular fields. I find that this is one of its best features.
I hope in the future though, that there will be the ability to hide certain sheets or cells from certain users who are given edit access. This would match the functionality that exists in other BI tools that have more complex security models.

Google Charts is set up on our Google Suite so as a team we can all access the chart when we need it. We really like this feature. We haven't had to worry about access controls due to our team all working on the same project but if it's anything like the other Google Suite products then it wouldn't be too difficult to set-up that type of security.

Sharing and collaboration capabilities for Google Charts was one of the main reasons I started using the software, as I wanted the ability to work on projects in live documents without having to share a working version back and forth over email. Using Google Charts ensures your document is secure and control at various levels is given to those desired parties.

Charts created using Google charts can be shared or saved to multiple platforms. They can be embedded into webpages, shared via email/fax, or printed. Each of these functions can be performed with just a few clicks.

This is the reason to get Google Charts. Sharing and collaboration are best in the industry with Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides. Google Charts allows you to generate Charts on these shared services easily and is worth learning how to use for that alone.

It's very easy to provide access to others as it is easily integrable with Google Technologies like Google Sites and Google Apps Script. You could even provide it to some users in the organisation. We can format the charts according to our convenience. Also, formatting properties is amazing. You could find all the reference codes in the documentation.

You can customize the access and secure list for the end user that you might want to add or exclude for certain views that allows you be granular at the moment of sharing and sending information to your collaborators, the reports can be sent as quickly as you can imagine with the right set up and access list to those report that you want to share you can send them whenever you want where ever you are.

One of the reasons Google Charts is powerful is the ability to create platform agnostic charts and content. Any machine with a web browser should be able to consume the resulting charts.

Google Charts utilizes cloud like software. You can save locally, or export to the cloud. In addition to that, you have have multiple adding, remove, and editing information and inputs in an incredibly easy method. A list of editions is also kept if something is removed and it's wanted back. You may also have varying permissions for multiple users. So three users can have full control, two can request changes, and another 10 can only view and save.

Google Charts, being a Google product lets you enjoy your access policies and collaboration through its authentication process. It is very similar to Google Maps or other APIs belonging to Google in that aspect.

During our project, I wrote a custom library that converted our data structures into structures usable by Google Charts. My library was used all over our site to display a variety of data. It's easy to share knowledge and code snippets used for the library.

I have not dealt with share and collaboration capabilities of Google Charts, Hence I cannot comment more on this topic, but from some research I did, it seems to be pretty convenient for other users that tried to use this feature. I would not be a good person to review this feature.
