What: This NCA GTUG is featuring the next presentation on “Google Apps Script” by Saurabh Gupta from Google Developer Relations Team based in New York.

This new feature in Google Apps is useful for small businesses, non-profit organizations and everyone else who are using the cloud based Google Docs.

Google Apps Script (http://code.google.com/googleapps/appsscript/)is a JavaScript cloud scripting language that provides easy ways to automate tasks across Google products and third party services. Apps Script provides simple to use APIs for integrating various Google and non-Google services (e.g. Calendar, Contacts, Maps, Twitter etc.). Apps Script does not require any compilation and deployment. With a simple browser based editor, you can start writing and executing scripts.

With Apps Script you can:

Automate repetitive business processes. (e.g. expense approvals, time-sheet tracking, ticket management, order fulfillment, and much more) Link Google products with third party services (e.g. send custom emails and a calendar invitation to a list from a spreadsheet) Build UI applications in Google Sites and Google Spreadsheets. Enhance spreadsheet functionality by creating custom spreadsheet functions. Automate tasks that are time or event driven. (e.g. run a nightly pending sales orders) Presenter: Saurabh Gupta from Google, New York.
