Desktop add-ons for Docs, Sheets and Forms

Apps Script makes it easy to create and publish add-ons in an online store for Google Sheets, Docs, and Forms. There’s no better way to distribute scripts to large numbers of users, whether you want to ship your code to the whole world or keep it private to the users in your G Suite domain.

Android add-ons for Docs and Sheets

Developers can use Apps script to connect Android apps to the Google Docs and Sheets apps on Android. This allows users to pass data to and from their Docs and Sheets to those apps, all from their mobile device.

  • For all container-bound scripts, the container owner takes ownership of a new script project regardless of who created it.
