Autocrat

Autocrat is a handy multipurpose 3rd party tool with a single simple user interface. It enables you to merge information from a spreadsheet into other formats such as PDFs, slideshows, or Google Docs.

You direct the app on the fields to merge. The app mass generates personalized documents based on the selected data. Alternatively, you can send the documents as email attachments, or instruct the app to run any time new forms are submitted automatically.

Autocrat was initially designed for the nonprofit education industry, specifically teachers and administrators. However, anyone, from researchers to businesses that use Google Sheets, can use it to automate processes. It eases earlier issues of manually coalescing data from worksheets into neat and presentable rows in other document formats.

Chrome Getter

chromebook-getterA handy add-on that replaced ChromebookInventory. ChromebookInventory allowed you to manage your Chromebooks and export organizational units and metadata to Goggle Sheet. On Google Sheet, you could then control the systems before exporting the settings back to your Google Admin console.

Managing multiple Chromebooks, especially in large organizations, can be a hassle. Chrome Getter allows you to bulk update and manage devices to and from your Google Admin Console. You can coalesce all Chromebooks in your fleet, get single OUs Chromebooks, and metadata for the current sheet.

However, do note that this add-on is only for GSuite domain super admin in charge of a fleet of Chrome devices. Also, it only works for Chromebooks with Google device licenses.

“I missed CB inventory terribly, this is a great replacement.”

Mapping Sheets

Mapping Sheets, a free add-on, enables you to geocode locations on a map with your data from Google Sheet. All you need is to get the data from the spreadsheet-the app will process and plot the data on a map.

“This application does everything I need, and more! After Google stopped supporting the spreadsheet mapper, I was desperate for another solution, and THIS IS IT!”
