    Cannot change template for regenerated forms. Reverts back to original template - even when a brand new template is created and selected.

    Frustrated and on a deadline

    I am a paid, premium user. I have not used any of my email quota today.

    I use form publisher for my faculty to create their syllabi. Here I am on the eve of the start of the semester to discover that apparently yesterday, the form publisher stopped working and when I try to "regenerate files" the program just goes out to lunch. It will say, "regenerating files... 0 out of 1" (or "0 out of 7" or whatever I selected when trying to regenerate). and I wait and WAIT AND WAIT and...nothing.

    It took me two years to get people to use this and now I (and this application) have been completely discredited because no one can use it to make their syllabus tonight.

    Can anyone help me??? Please!! Thank you.

    Yes you are right. Sometime it does not generate submission. I have no idea about it...

    This app was working fine yesterday. Today I tweaked my template and now I'm getting an error that my form cannot be retrieved. Really? I've tried turning the status on and off and rebooted my computer. Anybody have a suggestion?? I've invested a significant amount of time setting this up and getting approvals up and down the chain for this solution and now, poof, doesn't work.

    I should have read these comments before. So disappointed and wasting time on this.

    Testing FormPublisher. First test was working, but REGENERATE FILES to test changes and resend files stucks!

    Another thing I hate is taht I cannot add output to two or more files in one step. Why Publisher clone Form? It is confusing.

    Another thing I hate is I cannot go step by step from begining to the end to verify my settings (like wizard fir the forst time). I have to click on upper menu open Publisher and open one menu. Than I have to close it an repeat process again.

    Form Publisher is not generating New forms and it is not "REGENERATING" when I try that, either.
    Very Very frustrating and sad.

    Boa Tarde!

    Possuo um formulário configurado com form publisher e esse formulário já gera link do doc e pdf. Preciso acrescentar mais um campo de pergunta, caso eu faça isso, poderá haver quebra na geração dos links do modelo em doc. e pdf?

    I keep trying to add an additional email to have access to the form and it tells me it is saving it but then when I go back into the option, the emails disappear. I have been trying for days. We were ready to utilize this form company wide, however, I am ready to deactivate it all together and find another app. Can anyone help?

    I'm having this problem too today (and yesterday). Would like to get my work done!! I've emailed them.

    Hi, yesterday worked perfectly, but today I can not change the settings. Is a momentary problem?

    I can't seem to be able to go into Form Publisher settings at all !!

    Besides removing the add-on from one form, removes it from all. This is crazy. If I add it back to one form, I can get it to work with initial set-up. But then the add-on gets added to other forms and I cannot cannot cannot get inside to edit the settings and update the template for that one. As a result all my new responses are going without form notifications.

    I had to shut down accepting responses as I am innundated with calls for responders not getting pdf.

    what is happening ??? where can i call and get in touch with support to rectify this asap.

    I would like to know if there is a possibility of the "Date and time stamp" column appear in the form publisher document.

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    There are three markers that it will not add into my form and I can not figure out why
