Enhance and organize your content presentation

Awesome Table lets you easily display data from a Google Sheet in many different ways. In the Table, Cards and Maps view you can use HTML to design your view like you want.

Note: Check the Template sheet in the recommended practice spreadsheet, it holds the template
