We had a tenant directory built but it is not working all of a sudden.   I am using the older presentation builder.   I am assuming I need to build a new one.   Where can I find the Directory Gadget?
Thank you.

Hi there Anastasia,

You can continue to use the older presentation builder if you like (we call it the Classic Editor).   I do recommend that you use the newer one if you can - that's where all of our development efforts are going.

You don't necessarily need to build a new presentation, you can simply go into your existing presentation and delete out the directory gadget that is currently there and replace it with our spreadsheet widget.   To add widgets using the classic editor, you right click in the placeholder and select properties.  This will show you the playlist.  There, where it says Add on the playlist line, click Add and from the dropdown menu, select Content  - that takes you to the store where you can see and select which widgets you want to use.

A couple of tips for you - if you are creating a new Google Spreadsheet to use as your directory, be sure to Share it so that anyone with the link can view, and then be sure to Publish the spreadsheet to the web.

Thank you for your help on this.     In using the Google Spreadsheet only, how do I get it to present in alphabetical order.   The prior version somehow presented it in Alphabetical order.
Thank you

Ann, we simply type the tenant names in alphabetical order. Not the smart way, but it works )))

The spreadsheet widget shows in the order of the data in the spreadsheet.  If you sort your spreadsheet in alphabetical order you should be good to go.
