Introducing our Google Docs Add-on

Tuesday, February 2, 2021

With our Google Docs Add-on, Google workplace users will have the ability to work smarter and faster by bringing the power of automation to their Google documents.

With tools like iOS Shortcuts, Zapier, and personal assistants such as Alexa and Siri, many people have experienced the value of freeing themselves up from the repetitive, mundane tasks of day to day life. They can easily ask Alexa to do a complex task in plain English like “Alexa, add eggs and milk to my shopping list every other Wednesday.” However, in the workplace, those same benefits have been traditionally reserved for technical folks because of the complexity associated with automating processes, namely writing code.

Why shouldn’t we expect our workplace tools to be just as smart and easy to use as Alexa? We believe we should, and with Portant, Google workplace has native automation capabilities. 

Teams that automate documentation with Portant, can spend more time on important tasks and be more productive. Portant helps teams codify business rules and processes, taking something that might take ten steps to accomplish and automating it into one click. 

Portant can automatically request data from people based on upcoming due dates, or be connected with Google Sheets to create multiple documents at once and then whenever the sheet is updated in the future. 

Once you give Portant a try, it’s hard not to get excited about all the time you can save on your documentation. It may seem like magic, but it’s really just unleashing the power of automation.

In the coming months, we’ll be working to bring Portant to more Google Workspace Apps and then to Office365. We are also working on integrating all these tools together so users can create more complex flows, but more on that soon…

Anyone can automate their documents using tags and sources—no code required.

Working more efficiently has become a necessary skill with the constant demands on time in the modern workplace. On top of this, we believe Portant has the potential to help with work/life balance and job satisfaction. That’s why we’re set on bringing the power of automation to everyone. Our Google Docs Add-on is our first step down this road, enabling every user to automate pieces of their documentation workflow to save time, stay organised, and get more done.
