tidystats Statistic

Each statistic inserted with the tidystats Google Docs add-in becomes a link. By turning each statistic into a link, we can identify all the statistics in the document and enable features such as automatic updating.

It might look a bit weird that each statistic is a link, but this is unfortunately the only way for the add-in to have the important automatic updating functionality.

There are few instances where you would want to remove the links from each statistic. For example, when you convert the document to a PDF or other document, or share the Google Docs with others. In this case, we recommend that you make a copy of the document and use the 'Remove tidystats links' menu option to remove all the tidystats statistics links in the document (this feature will soon be added).
