Google Apps Script is a cloud based scripting language for extending the functionality of Google Workspace. It allows you to create and deploy scripts to extend the standard features of Google Workspace Apps.
Google Apps script is great for filling in the gaps in your workflows. It can be used to increase productivity, create and deploy internal automation and develop full-fledged customer-facing applications.
For example, it is possible to create a script that automatically updates a Google Slide on data from within a Google Sheet, when it changes. Useful monitoring tools can be created that can send daily emails, create weekly slide presentations or even direct message a group of users with a link to the updated documents or detected problems.
At Encompass Innovate, we use Google Apps Script to automate the boring and turn impossible manual tasks into manageable ones.
