  1. Be able to change email that form publisher sends from easily

    I created the form using one domain and now we've had to purchase a new domain and I need to transfer everything to the new domain before the old one expires. My .org email is where the completed forms are sent from currently. I'm able to change the destination of the forms, but I need them to be sent from my new .com email. I'm at a loss as to how to do this without loosing everything.

    • Allow report to be re-created / manual trigger of Form Publisher script for particular report

      I recently discovered a problem with the output from Form Publisher. I modified my template and form to work around the issue, but now I can't refresh/recreate the reports created from the last few form submissions. It would be nice if there was an option to refresh an existing report or re-publish a report when errors are corrected.

      • Display Variable Names

        It would be great if there was a paired GDoc plugin which gave you a field picker for the corresponding form so you can add them in without typing them all (especially useful for more complex question types). An alternative short-term solution would be to generate a list of the variable names in the form (rather than those in the template) so these can be copied and pasted over...

          • Customize the "From:" of the email that is sent

            It wasn't until tonight, when I called Google support, that I realized that the reason why my email filter wasn't working correctly is because my other email address is tied to my main one.

            Here's the issue. When the forms are completed I set it to email me a copy of the completed form. However, the intent is that I know that the form has been sent. Because the "To:" address is the primary user and the other email address is also tied to the email address even with a filter all the messages get filed away. So, I have…

            • PDF and Doc links not inserted in the response spreadsheet

              We were thinking of buying a paying plan but actually when we answer to our form, a google doc and a pdf are well generated in my drive folder but there is no link to these documents in the response spreadsheet... No [Form Publisher] columns and links ... It's a bit desapointing as we were about to buy the illimited plan ... thank you for your answer

              • Bug Fixing for Checkboxes.

                The way checkboxes are managed now is not satisfactory.

                Google Sheet puts a Coma and a Space between different answers.
                Example= answera, answerb, answerc, answerd, answere, ..., and so on

                Form Publisher (I do not know why) just eliminates the space. I think this is a BUG.

                Consequently, the result in my merged template looks like a very long word. Totally unreadable.
                Example= answera,answerb,answerc,answerd,answere,..., and so on.

                Can you see what I mean?
                Maybe the solution is easy on this one.

                In addition, this user had a very good idea:

                • Have Uploaded Photos Appear on Form

                  I'm not sure if this is possible, but it would be great if the images uploaded to the Google Form would then also appear on the published form as the actual image - not just a link. That way, viewers of the published form can get all the necessary information immediately, without hopping between programs.

                    • Multiple form output to one generated Doc or Sheet

                      The ability to have the data from one form generated by multiple users compiled into one Doc or Sheet. For example: User A completes Form 1 and the information is sent to Sheet X. User B completes Form 1 and the information is also sent to Sheet X, information would just be in a different row or column; so on and so forth.

                          We run into this problem because many reports are denied and sent back to the user. (The link to edit is attached in our emails. They go in and edit the form and submit it once again. Form publisher does not create a new generated one with the updated information…

                                  The new option to upload images to appear as actual images on the pdf, rather than just links, is excellent. But these cannot be resized and one photo tends to fill a whole side of A4, where I would like 4 or 6 to a page. So, for instance, if I have a marker in a table cell, the image should resize to fit within the cell.

                                  • refresh when edit response

                                    When people edit their responses, refresh the existing doc and do not generate a new doc.
                                    In that way the number of generated documentes will stay equal to the number of responses in the spreadsheet.
                                    This functionality is particular interesting in combination with your AwesomeTables script.

                                    • Conditional Pdf Generation

                                      Only generate the Pdf document if a certain field is in the affirmative. I.e., I only need a Pdf if it is a new application, therefore, I have a field named "New App". If "New App" is "Yes" then generate the Pdf file.

                                      • Suggestions on electronic signature development

                                        There are a few requests on this that aren't specific.

                                        It would be profoundly useful to either open the platform, perhaps by creating an API, or point to available open source scripts that would advance to this platform. There seem to be a few approaches to connecting this service to a 3rd party eSignature API service, where either a template could be called or triggered. I use Signnow for it's value driven pricing model, however any integration with an eSignature service would make the any pricing model that much more attractive.

                                        • Allow confirmation emails after editing & re-submitting a response

                                          1. A person submits a form

                                          2. Receives a confirmation page with a link to edit the form , along with a PDF of their answers

                                          3. Edits the form

                                          4.They do not receive another confirmation email after re-submission.
                                          - Unless, the administrator (=creator of the form) goes into Form Publisher and clicks Regenerate File

                                          Could you help advise on how the person could continue to receive their re-submitted forms?
