Google Workspace Add Ons walkthrough or GWAOw! is a Youtube series that explores the best add ons in the Google Marketplace.
What’s a Google Workspace Add-on
Add-ons are FREE or paid extensions to your Google Workspace that can help you to do a lot more than the standard software provides. They may achieve small tasks like providing a currency converter in your sidebar or be a complete software solution like a school administration manager.
Some of the most popular add-ons help you to:
- Mail merge
- Sign documents
- facilitate Industry-specific workflow solutions
- Integrate other software with Google Workspace
- Add custom assets to your Slides, Sheets, Docs
- Expand the capabilities of your standard Google Workspace suite
You can explore Google Workspace Add-ons from the Google Marketplace.
One to two GWAOw! episodes are produced each month featuring a selected add on. Here we:
- Explain what the add-on does and why it could be useful for you.
- Install or set up the add-on.
- Run through some examples to get you started.
When working with Google Workspace users and businesses I noticed that many folks simply didn’t know that there is a whole world of extensions out there to enhance their Google Workspace experience. Some people were frustrated with the limitations that Google Workspace provided while others wasted time reinventing the wheel. When I suggested they try a Google Workspace Add On for their solution, some were a little sceptical while most simply said, “What’s that?”.
It is my hope that the GWAOw! series helps to play a role in enlightening and educating folks about Google Workspace Add Ons. I want to give you a chance to see what is out there so that you might have an “Ah ha!” moment and say, “that’s exactly what I need to solve my problem.”
There are so many add ons in the marketplace and new ones keep coming. Check out the episodes below to learn more or explore the marketplace for yourself.
