You (and your users) can use add-ons in Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms to bring more functionality to files. For example, there are add-ons for document-approval systems, digital signatures, and advanced image editing for presentations. You can install add-ons for your users or allow your users to install them. After you install an add-on, it’s available with all files of the same type.
Where to find and install add-ons
Users can install add-ons from the G Suite Marketplace. However, you can install add-ons for them or whitelist specific add-ons to control what your users can install. For details, see Install G Suite Marketplace add-ons across your organization (below).
Note: Add-ons for Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms are moving to the G Suite Marketplace. You should work with your app developers to move any Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms add-ons to the G Suite Marketplace. Until they’re moved, don’t uninstall any add-ons because you won’t be able to find them in the G Suite Marketplace and reinstall them.
