Google Apps ScriptRelease Notes updated
You may not need these improvements, but may be some perspective is welcome. For us these notes have an important function. First, they are proof, that development of Google Apps Script
is alive, second, it shows that Google Apps Script
is a strategic lever for Google Apps
. Some of you are still working with a Gmail account.
May be you can not afford a proper Google Apps for Work
account, but if you can, make sure you bind the development of Web Apps to a Google Apps Domain for many reasons. If your achievement does not provide either basic functionality such as everything that +Bruce Mcpherson
publishes, or solves problems like +Romain Vialard
does e.g. with Awsome Tables
, you may have to rethink the use case.
Does your script just solve a single problem, than it may be good for a start, but if it automates steps in a collaborative use case, you are about to qualify for a new carrier. Easier and faster than with JS or any other programming language or with the skills needed to utilize the underlaying App Engine
You may not have been around when VBA had a break through or database tools like Microsoft Access
became available, but if you would have been, you would realize immediately why Google Apps Script
is the most powerful development tool of all available by Google: It gives conrol over AdHoc solutions to those in need.
When we started, most of the material for learning Google Apps Script was on it's way. May be it is time for a book that combines OOAD with Google Apps Script, but you could also just spend a day on the 5 Minute Examples of Bruce to catch up with that and use the next day solving your own problem.
It is tempting to use all of Google Apps Script, but from experience, we would recommend to put only those services into a Web App that are no longer experimental. For some reason, libraries still are, but you can be sure, if they have to be replaced, it will be by something better, probably a CMS integration.
So long, wish you a great day.+Keisuke Oohashi
