prevent editing

I was wondering is it possible to prevent editing certain parts of the template. We use this for a football team and they need to edit the scores, but I don't want them to change the layout or any widgets. Currently I use the text widget for this. Or is there a better option for this?

Hi Richard - I use a spreadsheet for this and provide the editors access to the google sheet but not the layout screens. All they can update is the scores.

Thanks Jim, that was a fast reply! I'll dive into that option.

Hi Richard - I think you can search by user in these forums and if you look at some of my other comments on spreadsheets you will see how I set about formatting text etc for use on your screens. The options in the spreadsheet widget are fairly limited on formatting and there are better ways to do this within the sheet itself.

Hope this helps..

Thanks Jim! Yes our users can allow access accordingly on the Google Sheets end only
