AwesomeTable connector: Permissions and limitations

This article presents the permissions required by the AwesomeTable connector and limitations.

Permissions required

Permissions required

When installing the AODocs AwesomeTable connector, end-users are asked to grant some permissions on their G Suite account.


The table below lists the permissions requested by the AODocs AwesomeTable connector and the reason why they are required:

View and manage your spreadsheets in Google Drive Allows the add-on to populate the Google Sheet that the AwesomeTable will fetch its data from.
Display and run third-party web content in prompts and sidebars inside Google applications

Allows the add-on to show the sidebar required to manage interactions between your spreadsheet and AwesomeTable.

Allow this application to run when you are not present Allows the auto-update feature to refresh the content of the spreadsheet even when you are not using it.
Send email as you Allows the add-on to warn you whenever the auto-update feature encounters a problem and needs an action from you.
Connect to an external service Allows the add-on to reach the AwesomeTable Application Programming Interface (API) and create the AwesomeTable.


Below is a list of the current limitations of the AwesomeTable connector:

  • The property file size view, if present in your view, won’t be exported to the AwesomeTable.
  • The add-on can’t be used inside the Google Sheets viewer in the AODocs preview feature.
  • You might experience timezone issues with your date properties in some configurations. If so, change any cell content in your spreadsheet (by putting a title in bold, for example), and press the Update button in the add-on to refresh the content.

There is no limit to the number of documents you can synchronize. However, if the process is slow, as an administrator, you can use the extended script execution in the Early Access program. This extends the execution time of Apps Scripts to 30 minutes, which may allow you to synchronize more documents.
