This article will walk you through how to get your Spreadsheets set up on your display as well as outline the configuration options our widget offers.

First, let’s head on over to our spreadsheet.

Click ‘File’ and then select ‘Publish to the Web..’ in the dropdown. Hit ‘Publish’ in the configuration window that pops up.

Next, it is very important that we set our spreadsheet to public. Otherwise, the spreadsheet will not appear on your display.

Let’s go to ‘File’ again and select ‘Share’ from the dropdown.

In your configuration settings you will be able to pull your spreadsheet from your Google Drive folder.

Under ‘Include’ you can choose between displaying your entire sheet, or a particular range within your sheet:

If you select the ‘Range’ option, this will allow you to manually input the rows. For example, if I just want the first 3 rows on my spreadsheet to display on my presentation, I would enter A1:B3, which would cover the following area of the spreadsheet:

Remember you must include the ‘:’ between the range.

Header Row: If you’d like, you can specify how many rows in the spreadsheet are header rows in the dropdown. These header rows will be excluded from the spreadsheet data and added to the top of the widget. Otherwise, the widget will read and extract the header rows for you.

Table Format: Select which columns to format. You can assign header text, as well as adjusting the width of the column in pixel format. This also includes alignment options.

You are also able to Scroll through your spreadsheet where you can adjust the speed and direction.

Row Padding: Set the space between rows. You can also set a row color and an alternative row color.

Under data refresh interval you can set how often to refresh your spreadsheet to check for updates. This way, your changes will be shown automatically without having to re-publish your presentation.

You can also select from an array of custom fonts and colors to customize your spreadsheet, this includes setting a background color and adjusting the opacity.

Layout: Select ‘Use default layout’ for a standard spreadsheet, or enter in a custom URL if you’ve developed your own.

Remember to hit ‘Save’. Congratulations! Your spreadsheet should now be ready to present on your display.
