Video Description

This course will walk you through how to set up a Google Docs generator using Google Docs as a template and storing the data in Google Sheets. The source code is included so you can get started quickly, and includes all the methods and classes used for this type of project (they can also be used for similar custom applications). Google spreadsheets are used as a data source. The focus of this course is on how to use Google Script to create Google Docs on the fly. In the course, Google Sheets is used as a data source to list created documents and templates, storing the doc ID and other important data so that they can then be referenced to link to the Google document that was created. This course is designed to illustrate what can be done with Google Script and how it can be used to create applications that do a lot. Google Script is JavaScript with a bunch of Google predefined classes and methods. It gives you the ability to connect apps together. The focus of this course is on Google Script and frontend coding such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and jQuery (which will not be covered in detail).

Style and Approach

Within this project you will be shown how to access the Google Script Editor; all you need is a Google account and you are ready to create apps! Using the Script Editor, you can access your Google spreadsheet data and use it like a database. Create a template or as many as you like; the app can pull them in dynamically by searching your Google Drive and pulling them into the script. Use Google Script then to read file contents and select all the fields you want to have inputs for within your template. All this data goes into the Google spreadsheet, which is then accessed by the part of the app that creates documents from the template. Open the dialog window and select the template; all the fields for the template get populated into the dialog form, which allows the user to easily enter values to populate the new template with. Select Create and the script will make a new document in your GDrive folder using the template and updating the fields with new data—all this in a few lines of code built using Google Script.
