    • Find not used markers

      It would be useful to know which markers are not being used, if I add a question and I forget to insert the marker right away.
      Also instead of having to create the marker it would be cool to have a function that creates the marker or a list of the marker that are present and I can use

        • Make it so that based on user selection in the form different pdfs would be filled out.

          I would like to have a few tick boxes and based on those selections in the form, fill out and generate a different pdf.

            • I would like to request an enhancement where images can be inserted into documents?y

              I would like to request an enhancement where images can be inserted into documents? For example, have a question where we can say "Select your logo" and have an image in the form, then have the logo that is suggested insert into the output document.

              I have a paid license for Form Publisher under the username: mncadetprograms@gmail.com, however, we don't monitor the e-mail for that account so am sending you the message from this e-mail.

              Here is an example of a form.

                      • Open generated file immediately after submitting the form

                        I use form publisher to generate invoices, and I immediately print two copies of the invoice. It would save me an immense amount of time if I could have the generated file auto open as a PDF when the form is submitted, instead of having to navigate to the associated spreadsheet and opening it up.

                        • Give us the option to trigger further scripts inside the form

                          It would be nice if we had the ability to say "After the document is created, now we want you to run this script"

                          Right now, I have "further actions" that need to be taken on a spreadsheet after it's created, but I'm having trouble determining how to trigger that.

                                Is it possible to have the different form submissions merged together as one document, or consecutive records of a single document?

                                  • What happened to email tags?

                                    I used Form Publisher for an online hall pass system at my high school last year. One of the form fields was <<3. Student Destination>> and all of our staff members were listed in this format:

                                    Last Name, First Nme <Email>. When a teacher submitted a hall pass, the destination teacher would receive an email with the hall pass in pdf form.

                                    Something happened now and it won't send the pdf attach in an email with our staff listed in that format. It only works if it's just their email address. Anyway that can be reverted? Or am I doing…

                                      Our system works best with PDFs, but the folder is full of duplicate docs and pdfs in this system. I would appreciate being able to eliminate the doc creation from the beginning and only generate PDFs.

                                      • MARKERS | Standard Google Markers

                                        It would be great if it was possible to use whatever standard Google Form/Sheet markers.

                                        A typical scenario is using the standard variables provided when submitting forms, eg: timestamp, response id, etc.

                                          Just wish it would auto-regenerate if people edit their form responses. Having to remember go in and manually regenerate forms when I don't always know when someone has edited their responses is less than ideal.
