Enabling the Google Docs Add-on

The Google Docs Add-on allows you to access the power of Frase from inside any Google Doc. This effectively makes it so you can collaborate with an unlimited number of contributors–sharing feedback, making edits, leaving comments, etc. 

This add-on is available to Frase customers on the Team Plan. More pricing info can be found here.

To enable the Google Docs Add-on, follow the below steps. 


1. Find the Add-on Option in Frase

Open Frase and navigate to Settings-->Integrations and click the "Install Add-on" option button shown below. 

2. Install the Add-on

When you arrive at the Google Workspace Marketplace (Frase will take you here automatically) click the "Install" button. 

A pop-up will appear asking permission to install. Click "Continue."

Choose the Google Account you'd like the Frase Add-on installed in. We recommend using the account that you used to register for Frase.

Frase will ask for access to your account. Click "Allow."

Once you see this window, you can click "Done."

3. Run the Add-on in Google Docs

Open a new Google Doc.

At the top of your screen, you'll see a menu option that says "Add-ons." Click that menu option.

The drop down will show several options. Select "Frase" and then select "Start Plugin."

You'll see a sidebar appear that will prompt you to link to a Frase Document.

4. Link a Frase Document

The Add-on will prompt you to link a Frase Document. To do so, return to Frase and open up the Frase Document you want to enable in Google Docs.

Click "share" at the top of your screen.

Click the Copy Icon associated with either document type (ready only or full document).

Paste the link in the Add-on sidebar and click "Link Document."

The Add-on Sidebar will load the research and topics associated with your Frase Document.
