AppSheet automation: The Essentials

AppSheet automation enables you to automate common business processes and document-based workflows. 
A subset of features, such as sending emails or triggering bots with schedule events using AppSheet automation, are not fully supported until you purchase a subscription. That is, you can configure these features, but they won't execute as expected.


Benefits of AppSheet automation include:

  • Unifies AppSheet’s intent-aware, no code-platform with process automation.
  • Offers intelligent process authoring and runtime with rich connectivity allowing users to author and execute their business processes using entities.
  • Addresses the long tail of human-centric processes, document-based workflows, and application integration use cases.
  • Enables you to reuse components in other automations.
