Last year we announced the beta of G Suite Add-ons, a new cross-suite platform that connects G Suite to your favorite workplace apps. Beginning today, G Suite Add-ons will begin rolling out to all users.
Whilst the Add-on ecosystem is being extended making them generally available to end users developers will have to wait until you can start developing new add-ons for G Suite:
Organizations can also build their own add-ons using Apps Script. Note that the developer feature will be fully available in early February
Everyone has their own superpowers. Whether you’re an Data Analyst, Data Scientist, Task Automater, or Programmer, you can use G Suite to support these talents. In this video, we’ll go over what tools you can use to support these different talents.
We’ve gone over the basics of App Maker, but now it’s time to explore the interface further. Alexandrina Garcia-Verdin goes over how to utilize and modify tools and widgets, in this episode of Sheets to Apps!
🗺️ Develop Locally:clasp allows you to develop your Apps Script projects locally. That means you can check-in your code into source control, collaborate with other developers, and use your favorite tools to develop Apps Script.

I’m a public school teacher writing Apps Script projects to manage documentation and to make life easier in general. You can read more on my blog, blog.ohheybrian.com or follow me on Twitter, @bennettscience.
You can use the Goal Seek add-on to calculate the required value of a cell to achieve a desired value in another cell. This is particularly useful when conducting break-even analysis or sensitivity calculations, like determining how changing one value affects other correlated values in your sheet.
Interesting to see Google extending the functionality of Google Sheets with this official add-on
A short promo video from the official G Suite account showing users how to install add-ons in Google Sheets, which developers might find useful to reference or see how to structure their own add-on videos.
