Google Apps Script and App Maker metrics are now available in the Admin console.

With Apps Script, you can create add-ons for Docs, develop custom functions for Sheets, and manage responses in Forms.

Traditionally, G Suite admins have had little or no visibility into the extent of the Apps Script usage in their organizations. With this launch, however, "admins will be able to view Apps Script metrics, including number of users and number of active projects, in the Aggregate reports section of the Admin console," writes G suite team.

Admins currently participating in the App Maker Early Adopter Program will see App Maker metrics listed as well.
