Today we’ve published a new tutorial on scheduling AdSense reports with Google Apps Script.

By following the tutorial, you’ll learn how to create a script that’s executed every hour to retrieve data from the AdSense API and send a report of the evolution of several metrics over the current day. The report data will then be visualized using an area chart.

You’ll also learn how to add a user interface to let you configure the recipient of the report, the metrics included in the chart, the hours of the day and days of the week for the report sending, as shown in the image below.

The following is an example of chart that will be sent with the email.

This tutorial is an example of how Google Apps Script can provide easy ways to automate tasks across Google products and third party services. Check the tutorials page to learn the different things that you can do using this cloud scripting language.
