  1. Have The Google Form URL in Spreadsheet (as PDF & Sheet URL)

    I would like a Form URL in the Spreadsheet as the PDF

    It will be more easy to modify the Form

    • Default Font Option for Form answers

      When creating a Document template using the publisher generator it would be great if we could select a default color or even font for the answers so that they will stand out from the other generic type set of the form.

      • Include a BCC option (instead of direct email) in the notification process

        Currently, the notification can be sent to a list of recipients directly. The form designer may not want the survey participant to know that their response is sent to a group of people. A BCC (blind carbon copy) option will be good to hide the list of recipients from the survey participant.

        • Saving ONLY PDF's

          It would be nice if, when saving PDF's in the destination folder, it ONLY saved a PDF, not a copy of Google Sheets as well.

          • multiple markers of the same name.

            Hi, i love this add on! It's fantastic. one problem I encountered was that there are multiple markers of the same name in my form, and in the template it seems to randomly choose one.

            For example, I am collecting information about students and their parent contacts.

            I have a question for a student: First Name
            and a question for the parent: First Name

            In the template, it then has Student Information: <<First Name>>, and it sometimes populates that with the parent first name. I've renamed the questions to Student First Name & Parent First Name but this seems clunky…

              • AppSheet

                AppSheet. Take a look at it. One problem I see is that when you "Save" a form in AppSheet it will not trigger FormPublisher. It required (I'm assuming your triggers are set up this way) a "Submit" button rather than a "Save" button. The form doesn't publish.

                • 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.

                      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?

                            • you fix the add on! It's has not been working all week!

                              When submitting a form on Google Drive it submits the form correctly and adds it to my results spreadsheet. However the Google Form Publisher does not generate a doc and no longer adds the link to the doc onto my results spreadsheet anymore! We use this daily. Will this be fixed soon?

                                • It would be helpful to be able to include the scores/grades/points that the form is capable of generating.

                                  The google form will allow you to assign a point value to an answer of a question and I would like the google doc that is created from the template be able to show not only their answer but also the score for each question and if possible the totals per section and/or per form. That way if it were a multiple choice quiz, it could be sent to them graded.

                                  Maybe be able to use a different type of marker to designate that you want the points instead of the answer and one that pulls the overall score. Like…

                                      Create a 'preview' link in the confirmation page that takes you to the pdf. So users could click a link that would take them straight to their pdf without having to look it up separately on the google drive.

                                      • It would be great to generate a form with only certain fields based on answers from previous filed.

                                        For example, my form collects information from a patient regarding their medical providers. If a patient enters "Yes" to a question asking them if they see a dermatologist, I want to create a form letter to that doctor. However, if they entered NO, I don't want to create this form.
