AutoSlides is a Google presentation template powered by Apps Script code design to be used in unattended information points, although it can also be used as an informational element, linked or embedded, on any website.
Google presentations have a publishing feature that facilitates their dissemination. In this way they can be linked or embedded in web media with ease. However, if the presentation slides are modified it is necessary to reload the page that contains its versions published in the browser so that these changes are manifested. AutoSlides is capable of generating a self-hosted slide show, visible using a browser, that automatically refreshes at predetermined intervals without reloading the web page manually in the browser.
A Google Apps Script and Google Cloud Platform tutorial to learn how to use GCP Service Accounts to scale and protect automations
Examples of Google Apps Script being used in an enterprise setting tend to be few and far between which means this tutorial by Jeffrey Daube is an interesting insight to how script projects can be setup to serve the entire company. In particular, Jeffrey details how the use of service accounts can be used so that G Suite documents can be created with a non-human user allowing you to make calls to Google APIs without the usual authentication flow.

I always enjoy presenting at DevFest as usually it is a reason to explore something new. In the case of DevFest London it was an opportunity to think about how voice interfaces could be used as part of a Google Slide presentation. In this post I’ll share some of the ideas I explored and how they did/didn’t work out.
In practice not all these experiments worked out but hopefully the post contains some useful snippets for navigating Google Slides in the editor, exporting slides as images and extracting text from the speaker notes.

In this sample script, all pages in the Figma file are retrieved and the retrieved pages are put to new Google Slides as the image.
This post is useful for not only showing how to insert images into Google Slides, but also for featuring Figma which might be a useful tool for G Suite Add-on developers looking for an easy way to prototype/design application interfaces.

I wanted to update one of my free Google Add-on apps that works with colour. What I had is just the standard HTML color input element where the user selects from the palette and that hexadecimal colour code … had always wanted to create a tool for a sidebar or dialogue box that would allow the user to easily access the standard colours or use the custom palette provided by the HTML color input”
