Supported Files in Plotly
Maybe you're more comfortable organizing, editing, and saving your data in an Excel spreadsheet or worksheet.
If that's the case, Plotly has made it convenient for you to upload your own data files by accepting them in .xls, .xlsx, and .csv formats.
Import Your Data File
Head to Plotly’s new online workspace to upload your data's Excel file. You do this by clicking the IMPORT DATA tab.
You have the option to drag and drop your file, or select “click to upload”.
Create Your Chart
After adding your own data, go to 'Create' under the GRAPH section on the left-hand side of your workspace, then select the 'Chart Type' of your choice. If you have a plot in mind but need help getting started, visit our 'Help' page for great tutorials.
Save and Share
Once your chart is done, click SAVE on the left-hand side. To learn more about saving, sharing, and exporting your work, visit this page.
