Created Different Types of Custom Tiles in Action Tiles Dashboard

Wanted to share my Action Tiles dashboard. Created different types of custom tiles using PHP, google sheets and a hosting server that I own.

  1. Upcoming Tile - It reminds you about important upcoming events like birthdays. Example - “Upcoming” tile in the picture.
  2. Pay Bill Tile - It reminds you about any upcoming bills and days left. Example - “Pay Bill For” tiles in the picture.
  3. Text Tile - It comes handy when you need to give a name to your tile groups or want to remind yourself to order something. Example - “Frequent” and “Order Eggs” tiles in the picture.
  4. Days Ago Tile - It tells you that how many days have past for a given event like aquarium water change. Example - “Aquarium WC” tile in the picture.

Please note that I am using the free version of Action Tiles. In case you have any question, feel free to drop them in comments. Thanks!

Are you creating images for media tiles, or using new IFrames?  I have some image/media tiles I am creating with webcore and google sheets.  The image is created by publishing a chart in google sheets.  It works pretty well, but is rather limited by the formatting of the google sheets horizontal bar chart (for example all the text I am displaying is right aligned as it is the Y axis labels).

It works pretty well.  I have one google sheets file with multiple tabs.  Each tab has the data (from webcore) and the chart for each tile.  If I could figure out a way to format the text better I would publish more info about it.  I like monochrome colors :)  I was experimenting with way to change the tile color from webcore also but don't think I got that to work.


@sk108, would you share your methodology?
