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.

I consider any tool, system or methodology which helps me streamline workflow and save precious time a shortcut. When I believe I’ve discovered (or perhaps created) a shortcut, especially a G Suite shortcut, I like to share that shortcut with others.
