Welcome back to the Cobry Cafetiere of Cloud Knowledge - your Friday morning break fuelled by the hot beverage of your choice and some Cobry Cafetiere knowledge! This week we're discussing AppSheet, so let's dive right in!
AppSheet is Google’s no-code application development platform. It allows users to create mobile, tablet and web applications without using code. The platform integrates with Google Workspace, allowing you to use your data sources to quickly and easily create custom apps that will adapt to your business processes. Essentially, if you can create a spreadsheet, you can create an App using AppSheet.
What are the benefits of AppSheet?
AppSheet users can create bespoke apps, automate processes and supercharge operations without ever writing a line of code. The platform's agility allows applications to be developed quickly and saves your employees valuable time. Moreover, without the need to outsource developers, your apps can be made in-house by those that know your business best.
Who better to create an App than the people using it? AppSheet empowers the employees in your organisation to create apps, no matter their background. The platform enables citizen developers (those with no coding experience) to create apps that address their specific needs and the problems they are trying to solve. It does this by providing them with tools and functionality that convert app building into a simple process.
Google Workspace integration
AppSheet integrates seamlessly with Google Workspace, meaning that you can connect your AppSheet app to your pre-existing data sources in Workspace such as Google Sheets and Drive. In addition, AppSheet automatically adopts the Workspace security features and permissions that you have in place. This means that when starting with AppSheet you can hit the ground running, no need to worry about switching between platforms or updating security settings.
