Special Notice for Developers - Enhanced Protection For Google Sheets

posted Aug 30, 2016, 12:04 PM by Amanda Hudeck

Hello Developers,

U-M and Google are both aware of the importance of keeping information safe in the cloud. As part of an ongoing effort, Google will begin requiring explicit authorization when third-party sites request access to content in Google Sheets via the Google Visualization API or Google Query Language.

For most, this change will be transparent. Developers, however, may need to make changes in order to continue feeding spreadsheet data. More information on the technical changes required can be found in the Google Charts API Documentation. These requirements will be implemented on September 14, 2016.

Tip: Did you know? You can be notified when someone makes a change to a spreadsheet.
