After you select install Google will ask you if you would like to continue. 

Then you need to select which Google account you would like to install Portant Data Merge on.

Google will display all the different access Portant Data Merge needs to operate. We have put together explanation plain english list below

  • View and manage your Google Slides presentations - Insert tags into the presentation you have open
  • See, create and edit all Google Docs documents that you have access to - Insert tags into the document you have open
  • See, edit, create and delete your spreadsheets in Google Drive - Read data from your spreadsheets, to place it into created documents or presentations
  • View and manage your forms in Google Drive - Read data from the spreadsheets attached to your form, to place it into created documents or presentations
  • Connect to an external service - This is a general permission that allows us to send information between our servers and the add-on
  • Allow this application to run when you are not present - This permission enables automations to run when you don't have the application open
  • Display and run third-party web content in prompts and sidebars inside Google applications - This enables us to display content inside the add-on

Click Allow, then click Done and then you can close the Marketplace window
