Google have launched Add-ons feature for Docs and Sheets – with this new Add-ons feature comes a brand new marketplace with dozens of options to choose from.
To browse through add-ons for Docs and Sheets, select Get add-ons in the Add-ons menu of any open document or spreadsheet. (Add-ons for spreadsheets are only available in the new Google Sheets).
I suggest that you play around with some of the add-ons to see which ones fit your specific needs, here are a few that I really like already.
Analytics Canvas connects you with Google Analytics
Remove Duplicates for Google Sheets
Remove Duplicates for Google Sheets add-on will carefully check the selected columns in your sheets for duplicate records to help you get rid of unwanted rows. The wizards make it very simple by leading you through the process step by step.
- Search for duplicate and unique entries
- Delete duplicate rows from your sheets
- Highlight the found values with color
Require (or receive) approval for changes in Docs with Letter Feed Workflows
Collaboration is already one of the most powerful tools in Google Docs, need to gather approvals or feedback? Letter Feed Workflows routes your document to the right people and adds a simple “Approve” button right inside your document or spreadsheet. You’ll be notified as soon as it’s approved, and can publish the final version with a single click.
Easy printing of labels and name tags with Avery Label Merge
Another great Add-on for making Sheets and Docs work together is Avery’s Label Merge, which makes formatting data in Sheets into labels and name tags really easy. If you already have your data consolidated in a Sheet, it can be really time consuming to copy and paste it when creating labels or name tags. Avery Label Merge takes the busy work out of your hands, saving your tons of time.
