Using Google Sheets with Client Portal
You can embed Google Sheets into Client Portal's content pages. These sheets will automatically update any time a change is made.
In this tutorial, we'll go through how to set it up and some changes you can make to improve the appearance.
- Once you've set up your spreadsheet in Google Sheets, navigate to File -> Publish to the Web.
- Make sure the Embed tab is selected and copy the iframe code. You can also change the other settings here to only embed single sheets or the entire document.
- In Client Portal, set up a module with a Content Page, make sure the Text tab is selected and paste in the iframe code.

This part is optional depending on your preferences but you can remove the sheet selector bar with the following code which needs to be inserted at the end of your URL:
And to remove the title bar showing the spreadsheet name, use the following:
Your embed code should now look something like this:
Here's the final embed code that you can use with all these changes applied. Just replace your spreadsheet URL (which is this part: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/e/2PACX-1vR1n3r11t2sKuRGHLS99-UMbfeKZzty31WunH-KNzCA1-cRALHUb_m5NdcqU4e5oNBJw2J-talGkc-M) with your own.
And here's our finished spreadsheet:
