Dynamically update your digital signage using our powerful new Sheets App

The Sheets app allows users to access the data stored in their Google Sheets docs. The docs remain private and secure – no need to ‘Publish to the web’ or ‘make public’ beforehand. As such the app is well suited to internal data, such as price lists, KPIs or financial data, where company guidelines may prohibit general public release.

Media editor improvements

Today we released several small-but-mighty improvements to the Media editor:

Introducing the Embed App

An ‘embed’ is a code snippet provided by another web property, like an app or a web site. You’ll also often hear them referred to as ‘embed codes’, ‘widgets’ or ‘html widgets’. The purpose of an embed is to display ‘external’ information on a separate web site.

The Embed App is an integration available in the ScreenScape Media editor. The app adds a single layer to a media item. The layer (technically an iframe) shows the results of an embed code that’s added to the app settings. Usually that layer contains a mix of content – text, images, maybe even video – embedded by a third party web property.
