The introduction of third-party add-ons in Google Docs and Google Sheets for Android is a move that Google has made in order to keep up the pace with the competition – Microsoft. The productivity tools market is continuously evolving and new features are added every once in a while, and today, we’ll talk about the eight new add-ons that were created by third-party developers for Google Docs and Google Sheets.
Saurabh Gupta, Google Apps product manager, wrote on the official Google Docs blog that “Whether it’s readying a contract you have for e-signature from your phone, or pulling in CRM data on your tablet for some quick analysis while waiting for your morning coffee, Android add-ons can help you accomplish more.” And these are the eight new add-ons that will make Android users love Docs and Sheets even more.
You will manage digital transactions and electronic signatures, which means that you’ll affix your signature on digital documents (financial, sales contracts etc.) or send them out to others to sign.
It’s similar to DocuSign, but the electronic files are signed in a “secure and legally binding” format. Using this add-on, you’ll be able to type, inscribe or upload signatures.
This app will allow you to easily scan documents, barcodes and QR codes, which can be saved as a JPG or PDF file and they are automatically uploaded to cloud storage. By upgrading to Scanbot Pro, you’ll be able to extract text from scanned files.
Salespeople will find it useful, as this app provides Dashboards with details about trends and insights into key sales, and even if they’re not online, users are able to access or modify customer info, then once they connect to the internet, info will be automatically synced.
With AppSheet, you’ll present data from Google Sheets, Smartsheets and Excel in a professional way. This tool can be used by business people who manage projects. Its three important features include content display, notetaking and workflow monitoring.
With this app, you’ll create APA, MLA and Chicago-style citations on your smartphone, then export them via email.
If you’re using Google Classroom, then this app will help you monitor class attendance and assignments, grade reports etc.
This is another tool for salespeople and it helps them to eliminate manual work, as it provides an automatic data entry system.
