The Apps Script Dashboard

The Apps Script dashboard lets you manage and monitor your Apps Script projects. You can use the dashboard to do any of the following:

  • View and search for your existing Apps Script projects, including bound scripts attached to Google Workspace documents.
  • Create new projects.
  • View details about your projects, such as the OAuth scopes it uses.
  • Monitor the health and usage of your script projects.
  • View execution logs for your projects and others that run using your account's credentials.
  • Toggle on or off the Apps Script API to allow or prevent apps from using the API to interact with your script projects.

View and search projects

The Apps Script dashboard lists all the script projects that you can view or edit. The left nav of the dashboard divides these projects into the following categories:

  • Starred Projects. Projects that you are monitoring.
  • My Projects. Projects for which you are an owner.
  • All Projects. Projects which you own or have view or edit permissions for.
  • Shared with me. Projects that you do not own but that have been shared with you.
  • Trash. Projects that you have removed from Google Drive.

The project lists show the project name, owner, and last modified date. The icons next to the project name indicate whether the project is a standalone project or a bound project.

View project details

Each project includes a view to see developer details about the project. To view the details about a project, click the row from the project list.

The project details view shows Error rate, Executions and Users data and graphs about the project, as well as OAuth scopes requested of any end-user using the project. The data metrics are defined as follows:

  • Error rate. The percent of executions that failed to run due to uncaught exceptions. It is calculated as failed executions divided by the total executions over the defined time period.
  • Executions. The number of times a project has been "run" or executed. See Execution types for more information about how a project can be run.
  • Users. The number of unique user (accounts) who ran the project one or more times over the specified time period. Anonymous users are not tracked and therefore are not reflected in the user count or graphs.

Each deployment of your project appears as a tab on the Project Details page above the data and graphs; you can select the tab to see the associated data for that deployment. Selecting ALL shows aggregate data for all of the project's deployments and from executions resulting from developers running the project from within the Apps Script code editor.

Monitor projects

You might have access to significantly more Apps Script projects than you use or manage on a regular basis. To bookmark projects for easy access, you can star them. Starring projects also lets you monitor aggregate usage and error rate statistics and graphs on those projects.

To star a project, on the right of a project row, click More > Add star. You can also star a project by clicking More while viewing project details.

In the left nav, you can select Starred Projects to see the projects you've bookmarked. Click the Error rate, Executions or Users scorecard at the top of the page to see the associated graphs for all your starred projects over the last 7 days.

You can remove a star from a project by clicking More in its project row and selecting Remove star.

Manage executions

You can use the Apps Script dashboard to view and manage individual executions of Apps Script project functions. You can find a full log of recent executions by selecting the My Executions item in the left nav.

The My Executions panel shows by default a log of all previous and currently running executions for projects for which you are an owner, editor or viewer. This list can also include function executions in projects that you don't have access to if they run on your behalf (for example, add-ons that you've installed and run). The execution list only shows the initial function that is called to start the execution. It does not show every function that was called during that execution.

You can control which type of execution is reported in the log using the filters at the top of the view. Each row of the log represents a single execution. The Start Time, Duration, and Status columns show the corresponding information about that execution.

The Function column shows the name of the function that initiated the execution. There is no name in this column if you don't have access to the execution's corresponding script project but it ran on your behalf.

The Type column shows what initiated the execution. Values include:

  • Add On. The execution originated from an add-on.
  • Execution API. The execution originated from an invocation of the Apps Script API.
  • Time Driven. The execution was caused by a time event.
  • Trigger. The execution originated from a trigger source.
  • Webapp. The execution originated from a deployed web app.
  • Editor. The execution originated from the Apps Script editor.

Terminate executions

Long running executions that are currently in-progress are indicated by a Status of "Running". To stop these executions, on the right of the project row, click More > Terminate.


You can adjust your dashboard settings by selecting Settings in the left nav.

In the Settings panel is a toggle for the Apps Script API. This lets you grant the API access to your script projects.

To access this toggle click the Google Apps Script API label in the Settings panel. This opens a new panel with warning text and a toggle switch. Access to your script projects is toggled off by default as a security precaution. Once you grant access, any third-party application you authorize can use the API to modify your scripts and deployments. You can revoke this access in the Settings panel at any time.

Find more information in the Apps Script API access guide.
