Sometimes we need tools to complement Google Analytics, either for data collection, analysis, visualization or reporting. And a great way to do it is to integrate Google Analytics with Google Drive using Google Apps Script. Below are a few Script tutorials that will help you do just that:
1. Automating reporting on Google Spreadsheets: goo.gl/jE4Va
2. Visualizing data on Google Fusion Tables: goo.gl/LOrOYg
3. Using Google Forms to measure offline interactions: goo.gl/xEefHW
4. Measuring email opens on Gmail: goo.gl/vu35e0

Of course these are just a few of them (+ I left out the really popular ones that I posted before) - but its well worth it to check out the entire list.
And these guys are pretty active pushing out projects that are even crazier but have not made the CodePen 2013 list - so if you're looking for a good source of inspiration for 2014, check out their profiles on G+ (or elsewhere) and add them to your circles.
And keep browsing CodePen from time to time :)
