Still a bit new to Rise Vision,  we are trying to build out some more dynamic content.

I know that Google Sheets can be used "as-is" which is to say in the format of a linear spreadsheet.  Is there a way to make use of the data  in a Google Sheet without actually displaying the sheet itself?

As an example, we operate a small cafe and would like to create a presentation for our menu.  The presentation would include certain elements that change each day, such as soup, entree, specialty sandwich, etc.  My thought would be that on Monday Text Box 1 (Entree) would display cell A1, on Tuesday, A2, on Wednesday, A2, etc.  Similarly, Text Box 2 (Sandwich) would display cell b1, etc.

Is this possible?

Hi there, 

I think this question was answered in this thread https://community.risevision.com/rise_vision_inc/topics/introducing-the-google-spreadsheet-component... if it wasn't clear let me know and I'll try to clear it up. 

Thanks!
