Google’s AppSheet is a no-code platform to help you build applications for your unique business needs. With AppSheet, you can enable innovation anywhere. Organizations use AppSheet to make fast, iterative, applications and drive innovation in a secured and controlled way without coding experience.

Watch our live demo of AppSheet from May 17

We hosted a live demo with Google Cloud Engineer, Kevin Apodaca, on Tuesday, May 17 at 11:00 am EST. This was a great opportunity to see how users can alleviate roadblocks and automate manual processes with AppSheet. 

We went go over common use cases and templates that are already part of the AppSheet platform so you can easily create bots and automate workflows with the click of a button. We also went over different plans available and how to purchase AppSheet.

AppSheet is simple – no coding needed

You can use templates within AppSheet to create a mobile or desktop application without having an IT or computer science background. App templates are available to preview here and can be sorted by Industry, Function, or Feature. 

Within AppSheet, the Editor automatically generates prototypes and suggestions based on the type of data you input. For example, if you include addresses within your dataset, the app may generate a map function so you can see the addresses visually on a map. 

AppSheet uses expressions similar to those found in spreadsheets, so having some familiarity with Sheets is a plus. The simple UI within the Editor makes it easy to decide what to do next and how to customize your app. 

As with all Google development tools, you can always ask the community for tips and tricks, or submit an inquiry if there’s a feature you need that’s not yet available. 

AppSheet integrates with Google Workspace seamlessly

Because AppSheet is a Google product, it connects seamlessly with other Google products, like the Google Workspace suite, and plays well with third-party apps such as Dropbox and You can also integrate with SQL databases, Apigee, REST APIs, and OData. 

Below is a quick video highlighting how a user streamlines a process from 30 minutes to 10 minutes by using AppSheet. She inputs data using the app, which sends the data directly to a Sheet and automatically sends an email summarizing the data via Gmail.
