Google Sheets Apps Script: Automate Your Business with Custom Functions and New Features.

Google Sheets is a powerful tool that can help you organize, analyze, and share data. One of the best things about Sheets is that it allows you to automate repetitive tasks and create custom functions that can help you work more efficiently. Google Sheets Apps Script is the key to unlocking this potential. In this article, we'll explore the features of Apps Script, show you examples of what it can do, and teach you how to get started coding with it.

What is Google Sheets Apps Script?

Google Sheets Apps Script is a scripting language based on JavaScript that allows you to automate tasks, create custom functions, and interact with other Google services such as Drive, Calendar, and Gmail. Apps Script is built into Google Sheets, so you don't need to download or install anything to use it. All you need is a Google account and a spreadsheet.

How does Apps Script work?
Apps Script allows you to write scripts that can interact with your Google Sheets data. You can create custom functions that can be used like built-in functions, add custom menus and dialogs, and even send emails directly from your spreadsheet. The possibilities are endless, and Apps Script makes it easy to automate repetitive tasks and streamline your workflow.

What are the benefits of using Apps Script?
Apps Script can help you work more efficiently and save time by automating repetitive tasks. It allows you to create custom functions that can simplify complex calculations or data analysis. It also allows you to integrate your spreadsheet with other Google services, such as Drive, Calendar, and Gmail. With Apps Script, you can customize your spreadsheet to suit your needs and create new features that are not available in the standard Google Sheets interface.

See Examples of Apps Script
Apps Script can be used for a wide variety of tasks, from simple data formatting to complex data analysis. In this section of Better Sheets you'll be able to see tons of examples of Apps Script.

And not only see them but you'll be able to make a copy into your Google Drive. All Better Sheets members can copy the sheet from the tutorial directly into their Google Drive account.

What Apps Script Can Do

Create custom functions
With Apps Script, you can create custom functions that can be used like built-in functions in Google Sheets. For example, you can create a custom function that calculates the average of a range of cells, or a function that generates random numbers.

Automate repetitive tasks
Apps Script allows you to automate repetitive tasks, such as formatting data or sending emails. For example, you can create a script that automatically sends an email reminder to your team members when a task is due.

Integrate with other Google services
Apps Script allows you to interact with other Google services, such as Drive, Calendar, and Gmail. For example, you can create a script that saves a copy of your spreadsheet to Google Drive or creates a Google Calendar event based on data in your spreadsheet.

Create custom menus and dialogs
Apps Script allows you to create custom menus and dialogs in your spreadsheet. For example, you can create a custom menu that runs a script when a user clicks on it, or a dialog box that allows users to input data.

The video tutorial demonstrates how to leverage Google Sheets and Google Apps Script to create a simple API for managing and checking the status of jobs or projects. This is particularly useful for project or product managers who need a straightforward system for tracking job statuses without exposing their entire Google Sheet to external users. The process involves:

  1. Setting up a Google Sheet as a database: The sheet contains job IDs and their corresponding statuses. This setup acts as a backend where job statuses can be updated.
  2. Creating an API with Google Apps Script: By writing a custom script, a doGet function is deployed as a web app. This function allows users to query the Google Sheet by job ID via a URL, returning the job's current status.
  3. Deploying a web app: The script is deployed as a web application, which generates a unique URL. This URL acts as an endpoint for the API, where requests can be sent to check job statuses based on job IDs.
  4. Front-end form for checking job status: A form is created using an online tool (like CARRD) where users can input a job ID. Upon submission, the form sends a request to the API, retrieves the job status from the Google Sheet, and displays it to the user.
  5. Securing data visibility: This method ensures that only the relevant job status information is shared with external users, without revealing the entire content of the Google Sheet.
  6. Integration with other Sheets: The API can also be used in conjunction with other Google Sheets using the IMPORTDATA function, allowing for the automated retrieval of job statuses into other spreadsheets without manual data entry or revealing the original data source.

This approach is valuable for project management, allowing for real-time status checks of various jobs with minimal setup and without the need for complex database systems or advanced coding knowledge.
