I'm guessing this has already come up so apologies for noise, but does anyone know the future of Forms add-ons with the new forms interface? I notice I have to go back to the old forms in order to use add-ons. Given the normal development cycle from google (allow old for a time, then axe it), this isn't super heartening news. Have they announced their plans in terms of add-ons support in the new forms interface?

I was by a member of Google Edu that when add-ons were available in the new forms the intent was for all existing add-ons to work w/the new--so I hope that is true!

We're starting to send some chromebooks home with students who don't have devices and I realize I don't know the best way to filter student web access once they're outside of our network. Does anyone have advice for how to stay CIPA-compliant when sending children off-campus with school-owned chromebooks?

We set it up to only monitor them during school hours and only on the school network. We don't monitor them at home or after hours.

Problem/Coding Help  - 
 
I built a simple tool for our organization to make management of folders in multiple places easier -- it lets you see your folder tree w/ "tags" indicating where a folder is in more than one place in the heirarchy and provides buttons for adding folders to multiple places (easier for our staff to handle than remembering Shift-Z). Now I'd like to make this available as a right-click option from google drive, so that you can select my webapp from the context menu in drive on a folder and then my app will get the folder ID as a parameter.

Can anyone help me figure out if this is possible and what it would take to register my app as able to handle folders in google drive?

My current draft of the webapp lives here https://script.google.com/macros/s/AKfycbyIvGPOBcJf4h2c_uafyg2FMY0lYCc0f35yuue012C2ysXk6stv/exec and the chrome webstore link is here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/multi-folder-managerjson/cihlehedjfgoclahoeeaiefidplbheje?authuser=0

Importing option is a few options down from where you add the mime types in the Drive UI Integration.

If it doesn't work within  sheets/forms/docs there is not need to publish as an add-on.

I'm just working on trying to get a first full google docs add-on out the door. My first attempt was "rejected" -- according to google, no menu shows up at all when they run my script.  I'm now trying to make sure the onInstall call works and to make sure permissions are working the way they should be, but I don't see an easy way to test.

I'm able to share the script with new users and run "test as add on..." but so far I haven't reproduced the empty-menu google saw. Anyone have any idea how I can test the installation step before re-submitting to google for approval?

It is indeed an exercise in frustration. I have a few more little nagging things to fix before they'll let the Add-On out. I was really building it as a test because I had a simple utility I needed and it seemed it would be an easy enough test case to create an Add-On with. 

We'll see if I end up having the time to persist through the process -- I'm not sure anyone needs this utility anyway, so it may be it just lives as a private script for now...

Anyone know how to do interaction-less OAuth2 authentication in google docs? Google finally pulled the plug on the old gdata.client authentication...
