Look at the Actual State of a current process

I'm starting some projects on bonita 6.0.4 but something that users complaint is that they still have to carry on with the old spreadsheet to visually and clearly see the state of a process, i would like to change that with a googledoc spreadsheet if it's possible, if not i think of loading an excel spreadsheet with some database information with the connector and a macro but that's messy. What do you suggest of doing?
