Building a Sheets-powered Template from Scratch

February 18, 2020


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.
