Installing add-ons

Before you can use an add-on, you must install it. This page describes how to see add-ons you have installed, install new ones, and uninstall add-ons you no longer need.

View your installed add-ons

You can view add-ons you have already installed in the G Suite applications they extend.

View your installed G Suite add-ons

Add-on icon location

G Suite add-ons that you've already installed appear in the right panel of the host application UI as a column of icons (under icons for Google products like Calendar, Keep, and Tasks). Only add-ons that extend the currently open host application appear in this column. If you've installed an unpublished add-on you are currently developing, it appears here as well. Clicking the add icon at the bottom of the column lets you search for new add-ons to install.

Alternatively, you can see all the published G Suite Marketplace apps (including G Suite add-ons) you have installed in the G Suite Marketplace Manage apps page.








View your installed editor add-ons

For editor add-ons, you can see the add-ons you have installed for a given editor using these steps:

  1. Open the associated editor (Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, or Forms). The next step depends on what editor you are using:
    1. For Google Docs, Sheets or Slides, select Add-ons > Manage add-ons... to open a dialog that lists all the add-ons you have installed for that editor.
    2. For Google Forms, click the more_vert icon and then select Add-ons.... This opens a dialog showing Forms add-ons you can install from the Chrome Web Store. Add-on you have already installed have a green corner banner with a checkmark. Hovering the cursor over add-on listings in this dialog displays a blue + FREE button for add-ons you haven't installed, or a green MANAGE button for add-ons you have installed.

Alternatively, you can see all the published G Suite Marketplace apps (including editor add-ons) you have installed in the G Suite Marketplace Manage apps page.

Installing published add-ons

You can install published add-ons directly from the G Suite applications they extend.

Installing published G Suite add-ons

You can locate published G Suite add-ons to install in a few ways:

  1. You can install a G Suite add-on within a host application. Click the add icon that appears at the bottom of the add-on icon column to the right of the host interface. This opens a dialog that presents available G Suite add-ons listed in the G Suite Marketplace that extend that host application. Click the add-on you want, review its listing, and then click Install.
  2. You can install a G Suite add-on directly from the G Suite Marketplace. G Suite add-ons are organized by the hosts they extend. For example, all available G Suite add-ons that extend Gmail are listed under the Works with Gmail category. To install, click on the add-on you want, review its listing, and click Install.

After installing the add-on you are asked to authorize the add-on for use.

Installing published editor add-ons

You can install an editor add-on directly from the G Suite Marketplace, using one of the following links:

All available editor add-ons are listed under one of these categories. To install, click on the add-on you want, review its listing, and click Install.

Alternatively, you can examine available editor add-ons and install new ones from the editor host application by doing the following:

  1. Open the associated editor (Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, or Forms) in a browser tab to an existing or new file. The next step depends on what editor you are using:
    1. For Google Docs, Sheets or Slides, select Add-ons > Get add-ons... to open a dialog that lists available add-ons.
    2. For Google Forms, click the more_vert icon and then select Add-ons.... This opens a dialog that lists available Forms add-ons.
  2. Scroll through the list (or use the search bar) to find an add-on you want to install. You can use the drop-down menu in the upper-left to filter the list of add-ons to specific categories.
  3. When you have found an add-on you want to install, click it to bring up its full store listing. Click the + FREE button to install the add-on.
  4. Installing the add-on immediately brings up another dialog that allows you to authorize the add-on.

Uninstalling add-ons

If you have installed an add-on you no longer need, you can uninstall it from the G Suite Marketplace.

You can uninstall an add-on from the G Suite Marketplace by doing the following:

  1. Open the G Suite Marketplace Manage apps page.
  2. Locate the add-on you wish to uninstall and click the more_vert icon next to its name.
  3. From the resulting drop down menu, click Uninstall.
  4. Click Uninstall App to confirm the removal of the add-on.

You can re-install any removed add-on later by following the above installation instructions again.
