G Suite add-ons

Add-ons run inside Google Sheets, Docs, Slides, Forms, and Gmail, but they're built by developers like you. Our new platform lets you add menu items and sidebars, edit files programmatically, and tie into over a dozen Google services without even spinning up a server.

You build add-ons using Apps Script, a server-side JavaScript platform that requires zero setup. The quickstarts for add-ons demonstrate exactly how to address several simple use cases:

  • Add a translation widget to Google Docs or Google Slides
  • Add a trigger to email you whenever a user submits a Google Form
  • List recent email threads that the sender has started
