November 30, 2023 — BigQuery Reports extension for Google Sheets now seamlessly integrated into OWOX BI projects


We are thrilled to announce a significant upgrade to our Google Sheets extension 'OWOX BI BigQuery Reports.' In response to the needs of our rapidly expanding user base—comprising over 150,000 individuals and businesses leveraging data in Google BigQuery—we are excited to introduce a strategic leap towards an enhanced data experience seamlessly integrated into the OWOX BI project.

All the beloved features that our users cherish are seamlessly preserved:

  • Unlimited seats, import file size or number of rows
    As always, OWOX BI doesn’t limit you.
  • Preserving favorites
    Cherished features such as notifications, an intuitive interface, an SQL-code editor, dynamic parameters, and scheduling remain steadfast.
  • Enhanced integration
    Now an integral part of the OWOX BI project, our Google Sheets extension unlocks the full potential of OWOX BI, seamlessly connecting with Pipelines, Streaming, and Transformations for a comprehensive data analytics experience.

Smooth migration process

Starting from December 1, 2023, all extension users have become OWOX BI users. We've organized users according to their GCP project and corporate domain, automatically generating new OWOX BI projects for each organization. Each of these new OWOX BI projects is currently on the Free subscription plan. Your reports will continue to update on schedule, and manual runs will proceed as usual within the OWOX BI project.

New feature: Comprehensive reports overview

Now, you have a detailed list view of all your Google Sheets reports in the OWOX BI project. Simply visit and open the ‘Credits Consumption’ page from the project menu.

Many users have reached out to us expressing the need for a full list of Google Sheets where they use our extension. However, the true value lies in enriching this list of reports with a count of data refreshes across your entire team within a month. It's all about providing you with a bird's-eye view of your data utilization—clear, concise, and comprehensive. On the ‘Credits Consumption’ page, you can view a list of reports with consumption metrics like ‘Report Runs Lite.’

What is the Report Runs Lite

In the OWOX BI platform, each product (Pipelines, Streaming, Transformation) has its own Consumption Units. Introducing our newest family member, the Google Sheets extension 'OWOX BI BigQuery Reports' with two Consumption Units: ‘Report Run’ and ‘Report Run Lite.’ For more details, read the Terms of Usage article.
