Building a Sheets-powered Template from Scratch

Our Google Sheets App is a powerful tool that connects a Google Sheet, as a data source, to a ScreenScape template which then formats and displays that data on a big screen.  The Sheets app is powerful because it allows you to keep your digital signage up to date, even as the data in the underlying Sheet changes.   Sheets is a pretty powerful tool in its own right and so by connecting your digital signage to a Google Sheet as a data source you can really supercharge your digital signage while automating the flow of data from an underlying data source to a large format display.

Check out the Media Corner video for tips on how to style a Google Sheets powered template from scratch: 

Advanced tip:  Using a middleware tool like Zapier you can port just about any kind of data to a Google Sheet which means, if you have a Sheets-powered template,  this functionality can serve as a bridge to ScreenScape, from just about any system that connects to Google Sheets.

There’s tonnes to explore here.  If you’re looking for more information on our Google Sheets App start with these articles:
