Being able to supply a live CSV URL to then be charted is something some of the more popular (as of now) chart plugins ask $149/yr for and this has it implemented with a simple add-on. As an aside, it might be nice to have the Visual editor’s button for MaxiCharts offer both CSV and Gravity Forms as options rather than only offering GF currently. Not a deal breaker, but it would be a welcome addition!
