@MatthewSteen I think he was looking for a manual way to add automated shading, not an automated way to add static shading :)

While there has been a way to do this for a while in the SketchUp plugin, as a plug for OpenStudio 1.9.0 here is a screenshot of the sub-srface grid view in the new spaces tab.

In OpenStudio, measures are used for automation.

The Add Remove Or Replace Window Overhangs measure should work.
