AppSheet Automation is a robust extension of AppSheet’s no-code platform offering new, integrated workflow automation capabilities that enable you to automate common business processes and document-based workflows.

AppSheet Automation encourages reusability, allowing you to build components once and use them in various automations, saving time and accelerating development. Events, processes, and tasks are completely reusable. That means you can reuse tasks within new processes, reuse processes within new bots, reuse events within new bots, and so on.

AppSheet Automation does the following:

  • Unifies AppSheet’s intent-aware, no code-platform with process/workflow automation as a first class feature.

  • Offers Intelligent Process Authoring & Runtime with rich connectivity allowing users to author and execute their business processes using entities.

  • Introduces new concepts (including Bots and Processes) to enrich the core AppSheet platform.

  • Addresses the long tail of human-centric processes, document-based workflows, and application integration use cases.

You can access the new automation features from the Automation tab, as shown in the navigation image below.
