We look at our favourite 5 (thus far) Add-Ons in Google Docs and Sheets.

Google Docs and Sheets is great when it comes to getting things done, whether you're working on a project with your colleagues, staying up late to finish that final paper or jotting down new ideas for your next project. As if being able to share and collaborate on the same document wasn't enough, Google have now launched add-ons - new tools created by developer partners that give you even more features in your documents and spreadsheets.

Why not have a browse through the add-ons which are now accessible in your Docs and Spreadsheets, just click on the new add-ons menu option and select Get add-ons, once you have installed the features that are best suited to you, you can start using them straight away.

Here are our top 5 new Add-Ons for Google Docs and Sheets:

1. Table of Contents

This add-on will automatically create a table of contents in the sidebar, based on the document headings and styles you have used. This table can then be used for easy document navigation - a click on heading will move your cursor to that section of the document. There is also a basic numbering feature available.

2. Track changes

Probably the most requested feature in Google Docs is finally here through this add-on. With it enabled, you can see and control changes made by you and your colleagues. Changes can be rejected at the click of a button.

3.Merge by Mailchimp

A great add-on powered by Mailchimp, ideal for sending to small groups of email addresses (less than 1000). With this add-on you can set up an email as a Google Doc and use a Sheet to contain your email addresses.

4.Easy Header and Footer

This add-on is really easy to use as it has just one feature - import a previous header and footer from any Google Doc. Easy but brilliant!

5. Avery Label Merge

As the add-on description says: “Easily merge Google spreadsheet data into Avery address labels and name badges” Enabling a merge of data from a Google spreadsheet to a selection of Avery’s standard set of labels to provide a document formatted for the selected Avery label.
