  1. 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?

      Put PDF file at the end of the answer on the form instead of sending it to the participant on his e-mail.

      • Create document for all form submission dates or a date range

        Create a document with the content for all -- or a date range -- of submission dates; in other words, a concatenated document with all data to date (ideally in reverse chronological order). Periodically, I want to assemble all or a date range of reports filed through the Google form, then save as a PDF that I can post on the organization website for all to see.

        • Option to prefill date with today's date

          The one that is answering on the google form should be "recommended" to choose today's date by not doing anything, if him/her wants to change, you change.

          • 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.

                If user chooses "No" for answer, highlight that answer in resulting document. For example, if person says "No" for Are You a US Citizen,, the resulting document highlights that answer in the auto-created document.

                  • 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.
