Five Easy Steps
Select the showcase
Subscription to service
Connect the display
1 Select the showcase that best fits my needs
Test our products and choose between different models of showcase. We have several templates that cover a wide range of commercial and informational needs. Contact us for rates or if you have other specific needs at: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. The product description contains graphical and technical information (information model corresponding to each template and customization options). You can customize connection box position, background images, colors, etc.
2 Subscription to service
The subscription involves a prior registration process. Once activation of the communication service is received, you can access your “Showcase” in the menu “My showcases”.
3 Load information
Before setting the “Showcase”, you must have a “source of information” that provides content to it. There are two types of data sources: Public existing source file, with the structure and format defined in the product specifications and media files, referenced in the file. Google Sheet type created with an account of Google Drive. For this you must have a Google mail account and follow the steps below.
- Access the DATA SOURCES window. You will see the list of existing data sources. For each of them there are the options:
A- Access to data (for Google Sheet type); B- Setting the data source; C-Deleting the data source
- To create new data sources press “ADD” and, the screen for configuration data source (name and description) is displayed. If there is an existing data source, you should tick “Advanced”, enter the URL of the public file and press CREATE button.
- If you want to create a font based on Google Sheet, press CREATE GOOGLE SHEET and follow the steps that your browser indicates. Finally you will access the template document with sample data. This is a very simple automated process. This file will be accessible from the DATA SOURCES window and from your personal Google Drive account.
- Next you must install the “complement” in the GOOGLE SHEET. This allows content generation and publication in real time. Go to menu “Add-ons” and install the “Movilok Showcases” add-on.
Once incorporated the data and media files, you can “Generate HTML documents” to provide downloadable files for each product. Finally press “Validate and generate data”.
