How to test from Apps Script

You can test executing the function from the Apps Script by clicking Run or Debug at the top of the editor:

Run and debug in Apps Script editor

Since it runs the function without setting arguments, you'll need to add default arguments. For example, instead of function sayHello(msg) change it to be function sayHello(msg="Test message").

The first time you do this, you'll need to authorize scopes the script needs. 

Next steps

After you have it set up, you can follow the instructions in Call Apps Script from automation to set up the task and bot inside AppSheet.
