How to migrate from the old version of the Component Manager to the Google Sheets Add-on in 3 minutes.
This has a lot of benefits:
- The installation is a lot easier and faster and there are no more scary "unsafe" messages etc.
- You automatically benefit from updates - no need anymore to manually update the Component Manager to a new version
- The app is faster as we don't need to do things like version checks with data from a separate spreadsheet every time a function runs
- Security: your Google Workspace Admins can whitelist this particular app instead of having to give you unrestricted access to any unapproved Apps Script apps
