    Start with properly SHARING the slides and get the sharable link (anyone with a link can see it); make sure you PUBLISH SLIDES TO THE INTERNET.

    Then I make a simple webpage with an Iframe, host it online and use The Web page Widget to pull it into my presentation. But you can also use the same webpage in your schedule as a URL link. RV Storage works fine for hosting.

    Thanks for that info Darius, however since the Web Page Widget is using a Presentation, that will require a Display License.

    This video shows how to set up your Schedule to use the free version, Alex, will that work?

    That I know, but I also stated that the webpage with iframed g-slides will also work as URL in a schedule (no widgets or presentations) and that does not require a licensed display.

    Robb, that's where I get the error message I sent. 

     

    Can you try a Google Slides Presentation and see if it works for you?

    Robb, that method from the video does not work! Basically the FREE URL scheduling option does not work! I was testing my webpages (just URL links, no presentations) on a licensed display and they worked fine. Then I removed the license from that display and all of the content went away immediately. Now I only see a white screen and 'Missing License' message. So, is this another bug or how does that FREE option work? Again, to be clear, I was posting webpages in my schedule as URLs ... just like in the video.

    UPDATE: I figured it out, it works and then it does not in certain situations. There is no problem, I just needed to be aware of those 'certain situations.'

    Alex,

    You can schedule a Google Slideshow by URL by publishing your content to the web and copying the “src” field of the embed code into the URL field in Rise Vision.  Here’s a quick video overview of how to do this.

    If you have any questions or need a hand, feel free to reach out!
