Hello all,

I'm creating digital menus for a restaurant on your platform.  I want the manager at the restaurant to be able to change prices on their menu, so I will most likely use google spreadsheet placeholders so they can simply access the spreadsheet when they wish to change prices.  The menu layout is unorthodox, I'm not using a grid layout.  so let's say I have the name of the item in cell 1A and the price in cell 1B for the manager's convenience, can I have just cell 1B show on a specific location on the menu?  further more, can I have different cells from the same spreadsheet show up on different areas of the menu using the placeholders?  Thanks in advance.

Hi Mohamed,

Yes that's possible. When you add in the Google Spreadsheet Widget, there is the option of only choosing a specific sheet and add in the range for that sheet. The Widget will then only show that particular range.

The other thing is to make sure that the cells are in plain text. Select the cell then Format > Number > Plain Text.

Let us know how you go.
