How to add captions to your bar chart race

You can use the second datasheet to create captions that will appear in front of your racing bars at specified times. Here's how.

    1
    In the Time to show ("From") and Time to hide ("To") columns, add the years or stages (which must match the column headers in the main data sheet) you would like a caption to appear over. Then, add your caption in the Text ("Caption") column.
    2
    Only one caption can be displayed at once, so make sure your indicated timeframes don’t overlap. If they do, only the last caption added to the spreadsheet will be displayed.
    3
    You can add images to your captions by adding an image URL in the "Image" column or uploading an image by right-clicking on the cell and selecting "Upload file".

    4
    You can also add custom styling to your captions. Read more about that here.
