Smartsheet Works with Google to Streamline Add-Ons for Admins

Install Smartsheet Merge With Just Two Clicks

Smartsheet and Google Apps complement each other at every turn. From seamless integrations with Gmail, Drive, Calendar, and Google Docs, and a hassle-free single sign-on, you can instantly connect Smartsheet to Google Apps and maximize your productivity.Now, it’s even easier to use Smartsheet with Google Apps. Smartsheet was one of only two partners who worked alongside Google to streamline how the G Suite Marketplace works. Admins can now choose to install our Google Docs add-on, Smartsheet Merge, across entire domains with just a couple clicks.


Seamless Install for Smartsheet’s Google Add-On 

Previously, if you wanted to use the Smartsheet add-on for Google Docs, each user had to individually install it. Now, admins get a seamless install for their entire organization. 


With this add-on, you can merge data from Smartsheet right into a Google Doc and generate hundreds of customized documents in seconds, eliminating the need for manual copying and pasting. 

This install is available for all Google Docs admins.    

Once installed, to start using Smartsheet Merge, open a new or existing Google Doc. All of the users in the domain will see a notice about the new install when opening the doc. You can either learn more about Smartsheet Merge or start using it right away.
