    Hi Jann

    Sure, you wouldn’t be able to do this from the admin section BUT it wouldn’t be too hard to do in your template files.

    The first step would just be getting your external data, such as from a google spreadsheet, or parsing a file, and depending on where its coming from clearly you could either work with the API to do so, or use php or javascript (all depending) to get and output your data in the template file the way you want.

    Secondly you’d want to format the output as strings, (with the formatting you would use for the shortcode, ) and then ouput them in the shortcode, using the WP do_shortcode() ; method.

    Good luck 🙂
