Step 4: Add Charts and Visualizations to Your Dashboard

You should now be able to configure your dashboard. Utilize the "Add a Chart" tool in the toolbar to begin adding various charts and tables to your dashboard. You can select from different types of charts like bar, pie, or line charts. 

Step 5: Finalize and Share Your Dashboard 

Once your dashboard is complete, preview it by clicking on "View." You can also share your dashboard with others. 

Regularly verify that your dashboard is updating correctly with new Google Forms responses. Although Google Data Studio typically updates automatically, it’s good practice to check that the data remains current and accurate.
