Settings on the Apps' Configuration tab

  1. Authorize using OAuth2 Authorization

  2. Choose which Google Photo Albums to follow

  3. SHOW ADVANCED settings

    1. Show photo description

    2. Call to action

      Clicking the item will open the assigned web page.

    3. Seconds per article

    4. The desired number of images to show at a time

  4. Rename the App

    Rename the app by clicking the name on top of the page.

    The best practice is to name the App to match the selected data source, in this case the name of the Google Photos folder you are using.

Complete the work by adding the app to a flow or directly to a display.
