We are looking into building a widget that supports Google
Drive integration for managing images and possibly videos, to be used in Rise Vision presentations. There are a lot of potential features for a project like this, which is why we are reaching out to all of you. If you can use a widget like this let us know here or through email to rvsupport@compaid.com

We are most interested in better understanding how people would use a widget like this, what features are important as well as some of the use cases that we should keep in mind during development.

Looking forward to hearing from the community!

I tried using Google Drive for storage and it failed.   After some time (days?) something resets the links and the images are not found.

Maybe I did something wrong, but it worked then it didn't.

I determined that Google Drive will change the URL for a file unless you specifically replace it.   

When creating this new widget, please make it simple to update content.

Always interested in seeing what kind of content you have for us!

If you're interested in this functionality, you should give CAISupport a Me Too on this conversation.

Could become very convenient if the length (time) of the content to be shown in a presentation is adjustable. I also suggest to think about designing such widget in a way that one can store and call his own RSS text-feeds from the widget. This way clients can manually edit their own RSS text content for individual newsticker easily without the hussle to update and provide individual newsticker content via a seperate RSS website.
Maybe such widget can also serve as a folder for different RSS feed URLs that will play in the presentation one by one successively,

I'm also interested as we are a google apps organization - I'm not sure the use case however... my biggest feature request would be to replace every rise storage link with a google drive link (and somehow keeps the files showing consistently) - I also know that's not likely to happen...
