Here’s how to get started!

Note: there are two ways to add content with Fugo - via our playlist builder and in our design studio. We’ll cover the steps for both methods in each section.

1. Install the Google Sheets app

Using the playlist builder:

1.1 Log into  your Fugo Account. If you don’t have an account yet, you can start your 14-day free trial here.

1.2 Click Apps in the top navigation bar to get to our app store.



1.3 Scroll to find the Google Sheets app in the store. To find it even faster, you can search for it via the search bar at the top of the store!

1.4 Click Try App to create a new playlist with the app.

Using the Design Studio:


1.5 Click Studio in the top navigation bar.

1.6 This will open up a blank canvas for you to start adding content to! To add the Google Sheets app, either scroll to find it in the Apps menu to the right, or search for it to find it faster.



1.7 Drag and drop the app onto your canvas from the menu. Or simply click on it and it will be added to your current slide.

Hint: Your content slides live in the left hand panel and can be dragged up & down to change their order.

1.8 You can drag the sizing handles of the app around to change the size. Make it smaller so you can split your screen and add other content, or make it full screen - that’s totally up to you!

Now that you’ve added the Google Sheets app, let’s take a look at how to customize the settings!


2. Customize the Google Sheets app

Using the playlist builder:

2.1 A pop-up window will appear where you can customize the app’s settings.

2.2 First, you’ll need to authorize our software to access your Sheets documents in the settings panel to the right.

2.3 Your presentations will now display in the right hand panel of the app’s settings. Choose which Sheets document you want to display.

2.4 You can scroll through your spreadsheets to select the one you want to display. You can also search for a spreadsheet by name in the search bar at top.

2.5 Set your desired Duration for how long the spreadsheet will be displayed (this only matters if you have more than one piece of content in the same playlist or several playlists running).

2.6 Pick which sheet within your document you want to display

2.7 Set a certain cell range if you don't want to display the whole sheet.

2.8 To fit the content to your screen, use the zoom function.

2.9 Once you’re all done, click Save Changes in the bottom right corner!

Using the Design Studio:

2.10 Customizing the Google Sheets app settings works the same way in the design studio - all settings will be found in the panel to the right. To bring up the panel, click on the app from the canvas.

2.11 If you want to add more apps or media to your content - you can click Add Slide and start adding more apps & media to your slide carousel. Or you can split your slide to add multiple zones to your screen!

2.12 When you’re satisfied with how your content looks, click Save and Close. This will close out the design studio. To publish this content, you’ll need to add it to a playlist, which we’ll cover in the next section.

3. Build out your playlist

Note: If you want to add content you created in the studio to a playlist. You’ll need to navigate to the Playlists page by clicking Playlists in the top navigation bar and Create Playlist to start a new playlist.

3.1 Give your playlist a name (we suggest making it something relevant to distinguish it from other playlists later on down the road.)

3.2 Click Select Screens to choose where to publish your playlist.

3.3 You can also add more content to your playlist by clicking Add More Content and choosing other apps, uploading media or from your content that you created in the studio.

3.4 Finally, you can change the schedule of your content by setting the start and end date, and clicking Week Schedule to edit the days and times your content will run.



4. Publish your playlist

4.1 Once you’re all done setting up the playlist, click Publish in the top right hand corner of the screen to publish or schedule your content.

4.2 If you don’t want to publish just yet, you can click Finish Later and come back to your playlist at any time.
