Automating and integrating Google Apps for Small Business

Written by Christopher Alghini (Senior Cloud Strategist) | August 24, 2012
I'm really looking forward to the Google Apps Script Hackathon up at Google Austin on Thursday, September 13 but I need more ideas for scripts that could help small business.

If you have an idea or are currently facing a particular challenge in Google Apps let me knowand we can work through it and possibly have a script ready in a couple of weeks!

If you are interested in attending the Google Apps Script Hackathon in Austin here's the link.  If you're in South Austin, let's carpool!

What is Google Apps Script? 
 
Google Apps Script is a JavaScript cloud scripting language that provides easy ways to automate tasks across Google products and third party services. 
 
With Google Apps Script you can: 
 
Automate repetitive processes and workflows. Create scripts to automate expense approvals, time-sheet tracking, ticket management, order fulfillment, and much more.
 
Link Google products with third party services. A script can send custom emails and a calendar invitation to a list from a MySQL database.
 
Create custom spreadsheet functions. Apply customized formatting or do complex analysis on data in Google Spreadsheets.
 
Build rich graphical user interfaces and menus. With Google Apps Script, a company could power an internal application for purchasing office supplies, where users could shop via a customized menu interface.
