Google is about to make your work day a little easier courtesy of some new add-on options for Docs on your Android device.
The add-ons, which are also available for Google Sheets, come as a result of Google’s partnership with eight integration partners.
“We know many of you consider your mobile device as your primary tool to consume business information, but what if you could use it to get more work done, from anywhere?” Google Apps product manager Saurabh Gupta says in a blog post. “We’re excited to introduce Android add-ons for Docs and Sheets, a new way for you to do just 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.”
The add-ons include:
This new add-on allows you to pull up documents that are saved in your Google Docs (or Sheets) app on Android. You can then sign the document or send it to others to get their signatures. To use this integration, update to the latest version of the DocuSign app on your Smartphone and then, select the document from within Google Docs. Choose ‘add-Ons’ under the drop down menu. You will then automatically see the option to use DocuSign to sign or to send for a signature.
This add-on permits you to connect Google Sheets and AppSheet in new ways, enabling app creators to better manage their apps and capture data more efficiently.
“AppSheet lets you interact with your Google Sheets natively on Android. You can call phone numbers, view images, drill down on data, and even add new rows directly within the app,” reads a blog post. “Every sheet can have a companion AppSheet app, if it doesn’t exist yet, use the add-on to create it. Once you have the app, you can launch it directly from the mobile add-on.”
You can get AppSheet for Android here.
You can now import your CRM data from your Android device to create and update advanced dashboards, reports and graphs on Sheets. First, install the ProsperWorks Customer Report Builder add-on, download the Google Sheets Android app, and create “a report in Google Sheets that leverages your ProsperWorks CRM data.”
