- (2016-05-03) pascaledmonton: Since it's not possible to disable the research function in Google Docs from the Admin Console, this extension does the next best thing, which is to hide it. In conjunction with other configurations, it makes it possible to use Google Docs for written responses in a summative assessment setting.
