You can now display charts directly in Google Sites. Once you select a spreadsheet, the editor picks existing charts from the spreadsheet to embed into a Site.

You can decide to choose between two modes Live and Snapshot to show the data.
- Live provides you with dynamic charts. Whenever the chart is loaded in the Site, the chart will display the most recent data in the spreadsheet. This is very useful in cases when the spreadsheet data is updated manually or using a script.
- Snapshot means just that. It’s a snapshot at a point in time, so the chart will store and display the exact same data, regardless of whether you make changes to the underlying data sheet.

Version 3.1.3 of the Google Apps Migration for Lotus Notes tool is now available with the following improvements:

- Empty folders in Notes are now created as labels in Apps.
- Calendar migration performance is improved (as much as 50% faster in R3.1.3).
- Added algorithms to compute values for missing fields on calendar events to improve calendar migration success rates. Previously, if a missing field meant that a valid recurrence rule could not be derived for an event, this would result in a migration failure.
- Added support for old and alternate Notes names in Calendar migration.
- Attachment repository URLs in migrated events now include web and Notes links.
- Events with no subject are now migrated.
- Mail migration now uses the original Message ID from Notes, where available. Previously, the apps domain name would be appended to the message ID value at migration time.
- Resource email addresses are now editable in the tool. This is useful if resources were not created by the tool itself.
- Phrase parts of email addresses are now removed during contacts migration.
- Deprecated the ability to toggle the Folders Processed flag for one or more users. If this process needs to be run more than once for a single user, the admin must remove and re-register that user.

- Miscellaneous UI changes
