Google Apps Script Cloud Computing

We aren’t all coders. Google Apps Script is a powerful way to automate business processes ranging from expense approvals to time-sheet tracking to ticket management and order fulfillment. Scripts are an efficient way for customers to add custom functionality beyond Google’s expanding suite of Web-based applications. Google Apps Script now offers:

  • Data interoperability through JDBC (Java Database Connectivity): Now, Google Apps Script can connect to any MySQL database, including business databases running on servers behind firewalls. [Google still prefers that developers use The App Engine datastore, but it has bowed to reality.]
  • Custom user interfaces for scripts: Google Apps Premier Edition users can now script graphical interface elements and menus. For example, a company could power an internal application for purchasing office supplies. Users could shop via a customized menu interface, and the script could email the employee’s selections to their manager for purchasing approval before routing the order to fulfillment team.
  • Standalone invocation of scripts: It’s now possible to call a script from any website, so you’re able to build web pages where users can submit entries that will be collected in a Google spreadsheet.
  • More integrations with other Google properties: New integrations with Google Docs and Google Maps add the ability to create and modify files in the Google Documents List and retrieve directions from Google Maps.
