This article gives an example of how data entered into a Google Form can be pushed into Aptible Comply using Google Apps Script. The "tags" can be interrogated by an Automation and drive specific alerts if the Event is logged as an "Issue" based on the rules configured within Aptible.
This is an example script and assumes prior knowledge of Google Apps Scripts. The security and performance of Events API actions are ultimately the responsibility of the Aptible customer. Our team is always looking to document and learn about novel use cases for the API, so please reach out to your CSM for support and with feedback.
The example script is for taking the responses to a security training form, and logging it as evidence. Other examples of Google Forms that could have relevance for security/compliance processes include:
- Security incident reporting
- Customer complaints
- Access requests
- Employee onboarding and offboarding requests
While this example is for Google Apps Script and a Google Form, a similar flow will happen regardless of what external data source is being connected to Aptible. The data will need to be processed/structured and then posted at the endpoint.
