Hi all

Right some staff members want to update our digital signage with simple text ie lunch rota or lunch menu. What is the simplest way of doing this. Can anyone recommend me a way without giving them full access.

Thanks

Hi there!

The easiest way would be to use the Google Spreadsheet Widget. You can add the Spreadsheet Widget to your presentation, and only give your staff members access to the actual spreadsheet. They'll be able to change the menu from the spreadsheet without ever touching your presentations.

HiĀ 

Sorry to bring this back up. 2 things does the spreadsheet update automatically on the screens? Also can you think of any other way?

All they need to do is add text for dinner sittings and if the pupils should be in or out depending on the weather

Thanks

Gartree,

Yes, it does update automatically and fairly fast. The longest I had to wait was maybe 10-15 minutes, and most of the time it was instantaneous update. And spreadsheet is by far the most easiest way to do that. You simply setup the spreadsheet, attache it to your presentation (this is the hardest part). Later just give the link to whoever would be updating it, which is just text input.

Thanks

Is there anyway to format the spreadsheet e.g. line spacing and move it centrally?

Thanks
