Picking The Right Color

Bizplay does not have a built in color picker, but luckily there are quite a few free color picker extensions available for several web browsers that will do the job perfectly, like ColorZilla. Once installed you can pick any color on the web page and the color code will immediatly be saved to your clipboard. This allows you to then paste it into the color code section of the desired Bizplay color palette.

Displaying A Google Doc

To show any type of Google Doc (spreadsheet, document, presentation) in a Bizplay page, you first need to share the document and then use the Web Page app to embed it in your Bizplay page. Here's how that works (we'll use Google Presentation as an example):

  1. In your Google environment, open the document.
  2. Go to File > Publish to the web....
  3. In the popup window select the Embed tab (instead of the Link tab). Share a Google Presentation
  4. Press the Publish button.
  5. Make the text box a little bigger by dragging the right hand corner and then select the web address between the double quotes right after src= and copy that.

Then in your Bizplay designer:

  1. Add a Web Page app to your page.
  2. Paste in the web address that you copied from the Google text box into the Web address field.
  3. Since the presentation is vertically centered inside the Web page app, you need to set the Web page height property of the Web Page app to something a lot smaller than the default value. Set it to 1000, for example, to make sure the presentation is visible within the app.

Displaying A Microsoft Office Document

To show any type of Microsoft Office document (Excel, Word or Powerpoint) in a Bizplay page, you need to have the document available in an Office365 web environment. From here you first need to share the document and then use the Web Page app to embed it in your Bizplay page. Here's how that works (we'll use Powerpoint as an example):

  1. In your Microsoft environment, open the document.
  2. Go to File > Share > Embed.
  3. Select one or two of the document specific options. In case of this Powerpoint presentation, select the desired dimensions and set the interaction to Use default autoadvance. Share Office365 En
  4. Select the web address between the quotes right after src= and copy that (it might be convenient to first copy the whole text from the little box to a text editor first).

Then in your Bizplay designer:

  1. Add a Web Page app to your page.
  2. Paste in the web address that you copied from the Office365 text box into the Web address field.
  3. Since the presentation is vertically centered inside the Web page app, you need to set the Web page height property of the Web Page app to something a lot smaller than the default value. Set it to 1000, for example, to make sure the presentation is visible within the app.

Displaying A File Shared Via Box

It is often easy to display a file shared on cloud service like Google Drive or Dropbox, by sharing the file and using its link in the Web Page app. Box, however, has some security restrictions that won't let you embed the file in a Bizplay page as is. The solution is to choose to embed the file like so:

  1. In your Box account, find the file you like to share and click on the button with the three dots.
  2. Go to More Actions > Embed Widget.
  3. Select the web address between the quotes right after src= and copy that (it might be convenient to first copy the whole text from the little box to a text editor first). You don't need to select a size. Share via Box

Then in your Bizplay designer:

  1. Add a Web Page app to your page.
  2. Paste in the web address that you copied from the Box text box into the Web address field.
