I have an app in G Suite that uses a trigger script from a spreadsheet to create a set of record-associated Google Docs, and retain their URLs within spreadsheet cells. This is done in the background, as a trigger. Can I access the Google Docs API to enable such a function, and how would I enable it as a trigger, similar to a trigger from a Google Sheet?
Sorry if this sounds basic, I am just starting with Air Table. Much tighter and somewhat more intuitive than G Suite.
There are two ways to access the Docs API from Airtable:
Use Google Apps Script to create a simple web service that runs your desired functions. In this approach, you are building an API of your own that listens for Airtable calls and runs the functions you called.
I prefer the latter because it gives me additional control over the processing and all without the non-trivial elements of the oAuth2 security context required by the REST API.
