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.

Save time and achieve higher production values with digital signage templates that are inherently flexible

While some may choose to import media, or create it from scratch, the ScreenScape5 platform includes a wide assortment of digital signage templates, with more being added all the time. For those of you that aren’t design geniuses, you should know a few things about our templates. They are designed to be versatile and easily adapted to your own business needs. Although our templates may use images or text that suggest a specific subject matter, or imply a target industry vertical, they are actually meant to be professionally designed starting points that any user can quickly repurpose for any reason. By giving you a snazzy looking design as a starting point, we’re hoping to help you save time and achieve higher production values. But you can take any template in any direction you want. You can add or remove elements.  You can move elements around the screen. Or you can simply change a few colors to better align with your brand.
