Best Gmail Add-Ons for Business

Useful Gmail Add-Ons

Launched in 2004, Gmail has grown to more than 1.2 billion users – and counting. To make using the platform even more efficient and keep that enormous user base happy, Google launched third-party add-ons for Gmail.
These native extensions allow users to access applications from right within their email, saving them time by not requiring them to constantly toggle back and forth.

The add-ons currently work on your computer and via the mobile app on Android (Google is “working with Apple to bring Gmail Add-ons to iOS users” at a later date). There are currently a few add-on extensions available in the G Suite Marketplace. Here are five of our favorite that will help your business take its email to the next level.

RingCentral for Gmail

With this add-on, users can access the cloud-based phone system from within their email. Once the extension is installed, RingCentral contacts, messages, call history are displayed in your Gmail message threads. Users can also see the on/offline status of their Ring Central connections, send SMS messages and make outbound calls.

Trello for Gmail
The Trello extension for Gmail helps keep your inbox organized and you working at maximum productivity. Users can convert their emails into to-do’s, which they can send directly to Trello boards and lists for action. Email subject lines are automatically added as a card description, which makes viewing easy and ensures that nothing gets lost.

Streak CRM for Gmail
Manage your entire sales process from your inbox. The Streak CRM for Gmail add-on lets you track customer correspondence, support and sales, plus you can then share that data with your team from within Gmail. You can also schedule emails to be sent when they will be the most impactful and track when they are opened.

Hire for Gmail
Wouldn’t it be great if the recruiting process was simplified? Well, that’s exactly what the Hire extension aims to do by streaming the steps within Gmail. Users can review candidate applications, respond to job applicants and schedule interviews from their inbox without going back and forth through applications. It also allows users to view and track team member interactions so you never have to wonder if someone followed up.

Smartsheet
Smartsheet has become a major go-to project management solution for staying on top of deliverables, deadlines and who is responsible for each task. Users can add entire emails and attachments in addition to chiming in with comments to specific Smartsheet rows to provide context. Further, users can import their contacts directly to Smartsheet to share projects, all without leaving their inbox.
