Make your own Office Desk Booking with Apps Script

In this new era post Covid, to come back to work we have to maintain a certain quota of people at the office. At Devoteam G Cloud we had this needs and to be able to manage people at office we build a web app with Apps Script to manage team and people presence on site.

A great example from Stéphane Giron using Google Apps Script to rapidly develop and deploy an office management solution. The post highlights the utility of PropertiesService to store data in the web app. This solution falls into the category of minimum viable product, but given the nature of Apps Script could be a great project to build on with integration with other Google services.
