Using Google Apps Script to schedule Google Meets for a Virtual Parents’ Evening Assistant

If your school is considering conducting an online ‘Virtual Parents’ Evening’ due to covid restrictions, this project might save your staff time. The Google Sheet (make a copy at https://bit.ly/vpeassistant ) uses Google Apps Scripts to automatically create a Calendar event (in your default Calendar), create a Meet link as part of the event, paste the Meet link back into the Sheet and create a draft email to the parent containing the Meet link and time/date.

A simple and effective solution from Luke Craig to help you manage virtual parents evenings … and more. In particular useful to see how you can add Google Meet video calls to you calendar invites. The video description also includes a link to the source code on Github.

Add a Google Meet to Calendar Events with Google Apps Script

My small team relies on automation to make things run. Part of our PD process is a Google Form workflow that kicks off calendar events, document creation, and email notifications. Since we’ve moved to online learning, we wanted to update that process to automatically add a Google Meet link for any PD that doesn’t have to be in person.

There are some official Google guides that show how to attach a Meet event to the Calendar, but nothing from the perspective of Apps Script specifically, so that’s what is shown here.

An interesting implementation by Urwa Shabir on managing meeting schedule using Twilio, Google Calendar and Apps Script.
