  1. Allow the same form to be re-populated with data from multiple times (when using the same google form multiple times).

    When using a google form multiple times, allow me to have that data appear in the same form publisher template rather than create a new form each time. For example, if gathering assessment data for education, I would want to have the same student's data all compiled into one form rather than multiple forms for each new set of data I collect via google forms.

    • When passing multiple items to the document from a "check all that apply" answer, there should be some way to format or separate the items.

      Let's say you wanted to list topping options for pizza. The user can check everything they might want on their pizza. Presently I see the options all strung together (Mushrooms Onions Peppers) and I would like to be able to add line breaks between each option.

      • If/Then Formatting for Answers

        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.

        • 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.

            • 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…

              • Fix time (duration)

                Doesn't transfer the duration correctly, no matter what format I make the receiving cell.
                I have tried plain text, date/time, time, duration.
                If I'm doing something wrong, please inform me.

                • create an option to only generate a pdf

                  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.

                  • Love it! Just wish it would auto-regenerate if people edit their form responses.

                    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.

                        • Generate and send DOCX/XSLX file attachment

                          In my workflow we need to send a customized DOCX files that the recipient must be able to edit but currently the only only option to send files to non-google users is in PDF.

                          Attaching the Word or Excel would be perfect.

                          One other way would be to allow changing the document sharing to "anyone with the link may view" and this way one could download the file.

                          • Have multiple layout options.

                            I would love to be able to select an option that allows me to view the form information differently. With the current layout, the questions appear at the top of the page and the responses underneath. I would like to have the option for the questions to be lined up in a column (so instead of them being across, they'd be down 1,2,3,etc.) and the responses put to the left of them.

                                    • 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.

                                        • A new tag for multiple choice

                                          My form has a multiple choice but I don´t want the choice write on my PDF, I would like a circle or a check on it.
