This app type allows you to create in a few minutes a responsive slideshow to insert in any of your websites. It can easily be configured with the following Slideshow specific settings and keywords.
Simple Slideshow App
Some keywords are specific to the Slideshow app. They are used to specify what column should be used to create your app. All of these keywords are optionals.
|SlideTitle||Using SlideTitle on a text column will display the content of this column as a title in your slideshow.|
|SlideText||Using SlideText on a text column will display the content of this column as text in your slideshow.|
|SlideImage||SlideImage is used to specify the column containing the links to the pictures you would like to display. It is recommended to use good quality pictures.|
|SlideLink||Add SlideLink to a column containing links. Users will be redirected to these links when clicking on a slide.|
Use the SlideContent keyword to specify what you want to display as HTML elements.
There are a few Slideshow specific settings available in awesome-table.com. They will help you tweak the app to get the desired result.
|Height (1)||Sets up the height of your slideshow. Width will depend on the width of the browser.|
|Slide display time (2)||Sets up the time Awesome Table will display each slide in seconds (can be a decimal number).|
|Text's color (3)||Sets up the color of the title, text and slideshow arrows. It can be a classic (red, blue, yellow ...), an hex or a rgba color.|
|Background's color (4)||Sets up the background color of your title and text. It can be a classic (red, blue, yellow ...), an hex or a rgba color.|
Slideshow app with HTML Template
The basic slideshow app does not require you to write any HTML to display your content, but limits you to a specific layout, containing a background image, some text and / or a link.
If you wish to add more information in your slides or change how it is presented, you will need to write your own HTML template.

Here's an example with a logo in the top left corner, a centered profile picture and a star rating to display reviews on a product.
- Create an empty column in your datasheet (using an appropriate header-title like "Template").
- Specify the "SlideContent" keyword in the second row in this column.
- Create a new sheet with the name you want. This name must be the same as in your "Templates range" (in our example, we used “Template”).
- Insert a new column in your template tab with the same header-title used for your SlideContent column (in the example above, we used "Template").
