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.
