Add-Ons and Templates

Add-Ons using Google Apps Script

I learned a little JavaScript which is applicable for Google Apps Script. This allows me to code Google Docs and Sheets to create custom applications. Most of the templates below have an Add-On menu. These Add-ons are not available in the Add-on marketplace, but are instead tied to the template document. Usually the Add-on is the last Add-on in the list.
