With Add-ons you can do the following:
- Add customized functionality to G Suite applications such as Gmail.
- Boost your workflow efficiency when working with G Suite.
- Use Apps Script services to easily control and move data between Google applications.
- Connect to non-Google services within G Suite applications, allowing you to retrieve or upload data from those services into and from G Suite.
- Create custom interfaces (sidebars, menus, and dialogs) that are displayed within the G Suite application the add-on extends, potentially removing the need for a user to switch browser tabs when working with multiple applications.
You can create add-ons for your personal use, for use within your organization, or publish them to the G Suite Marketplace where millions of users and domain administrators can find and install them.
Add-ons are defined by the application they extend (the host application). There are two primary types of add-ons: Gmail add-ons and Editor add-ons.
These two types differ in how authorization is handled, how their interfaces are constructed, where they are available, and how they are published. See Add-on types for more information.
