Add-ons & Apps for Google at U-M

ITS and Google only support the official mobile apps offered by Google for use with U-M Google accounts. ITS does not provide end-user support for third-party add-ons and apps other than to ensure they are available for use at U-M.

Third-party add-ons may display advertisements, require additional terms of service agreements, have a separate privacy policy, or retain your information. For those reasons, most add-ons within the Google Workspace Marketplace are currently deactivated for the University of Michigan domain, with the few exceptions below.  

Add-ons Available in U-M Google

The following add-ons are available in U-M Google. Their vendors provide support for the apps below.

Google Calendar

Google Drive

  • Awesome Table
    Display a Google Sheet's content in various views: from simple tables to people directories, Gantt chart views, Google Maps, card views, and more. With Awesome Table, data in Sheets are shown more functionally and can be shared with anybody.
  • Email Notifications for Google Forms
    Get Form answers in an email after users submit the form. Send emails to different people based on form answers.
  • Form Approvals
    Turn Google Form submissions into interactive workflows to automate any process needing approval.

  • Power Tools
    Enhance your Google Sheets with 30+ features that organize and unify your data.

Google Mail

  • Mail Merge with Attachments
    Send personalized email messages to your contacts in Gmail. Each email message is unique, and every recipient will receive your intended message as if it were sent solely to them. Email tracking will help you know when people have read your email.
  • Yet Another Mail Merge
    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.
Note: Google Voice is not a core app and is not available in U-M Google or supported at U-M.

Add-ons vs. Extensions

An extension is something that you add to your web browser to customize your experience while browsing the web (e.g., Google Chrome). An add-on is something that you add directly to a product, like Google Docs, Forms, Mail, etc., to extend a product's capabilities and functionality. Extensions do not need to be approved for use in U-M Google, whereas add-ons do. However, the same third-party warnings apply to extensions as they do add-ons, and caution should be used when installing these within your browser.
