Google Marketplace and Third-Party Apps

February 21, 2018

The G Suite Marketplace is a collection of apps that integrate with Google to provide additional features. Most of them are developed and maintained by third-party vendors, and not by Google or U-M. They are not covered by the university’s contract with G Suite. 

Unlicensed Applications
Unless officially licensed by the University, G Suite Marketplace apps may require an additional terms of service agreement. Those agreements are accepted by the individual and not on behalf of the University. Unlicensed G Suite Marketplace apps are also not supported by the ITS Service Center and are not promoted by the U-M Google support team. 

Licensed Applications
We have, however, acquired enterprise licensing for U-M for two G Suite Marketplace apps -  Awesome Table and Yet Another Mail Merge (YAMM). These apps  integrate with U-M Google, adding new features and productivity possibilities. The contracts and licensing agreements with the vendor ensure that the university has an official relationship with the developer.  

Awesome Table lets you display the content of a Google Sheet into various types of views: From a simple table to people directories, Gantt chart views, Google Maps, or card views. There are many possibilities to suit your needs. With it, data in Sheets are shown in a more functional way and can be shared to anybody. This is available to the university community for free.

Yet Another Mail Merge (YAMM) improves email quality with custom content for each entry on your mailing list. Create email campaigns with Gmail and Google Sheets, and then personalize and track each email sent. This is also available to the University community for free.

When contacting the ITS Service Center, please mention that you are working with an approved G Suite Marketplace app.
