Superuser Tools (Google Slides Add-on)
The Slides add-on that makes every user a superuser
Let's face it: making beautiful Slides is not always easy.
How do professionals in consulting or marketing do it? With the help of the right tools.
This Slides add-on puts dozens of superuser features at your fingertips, so that you can more efficiently create pixel-perfect slides. Modeled after the kinds of Powerpoint plug-ins that large companies often offer internally, this add-on is jam-packed with different features big and small to help you create a deck that you'll be proud to present.
Your data is kept private
This add-on requests access to the following scopes of data during the installation process:
Accessing the current Slides file when the add-on is open: this allows the add-on's features to actually work
Example: when you select two objects on the slide and click the "Same size" feature in the add-on, the add-on uses this scope
Calling third party services: third-party services invoked include:
Google Analytics: this stores anonymized usage data to help us debug and improve the add-on over time; no personally identifiable information is stored
Stripe: this powers the payment flow for users who wish to subscribe to the Premium tier of features
Various libraries of code which allow for smoother user interactions, e.g. one that creates the "color palette" color picker
Opening new dialog windows via the add-on: this allows the add-on to open dialog windows that provide more explanation or functionality from the add-on
Example: the font palette has "Help" information that shows up in a dialog window
Example: the Diagram Library opens up in a new dialog window
No contents from your Slides files ever leave Slides
There are two tiers of features for this add-on:
Basic offers over three dozen features in categories ranging from alignment to distribution to sizing to standardization - this tier is available to all users free of charge
Premium offers even more powerful features that save users even more time - users can sign up for a 21 day trial period, and subscriptions after that are $1 / user / month (initial period pricing); premium features include
Font palette - save certain fonts that you use often and apply them with a click of a button
Inserted objects - shortcuts to insert various helpful objects like a "sticky note", a footnotes section, Table of Contents, Harvey Balls, and more
(New!) Diagram library - a library of slide layouts and diagrams that can be inserted with one click
