  1. I call and ask e-mail. I do not need that Form Publisher create as no one file if e-mail absent

    I do call and ask e-mail.
    When I get e-mail and I print it in Form <<e-mail>>
    I need that Form Publisher create as file and PDF as send PDF to recipient to <<e-mail>> from Form.

    But when a can not get <<e-mail>> I do not need to Form Publisher nor file creation nor PDF creation nor PDF sending. That is I need check-box for switch on|off this option.

    • Allow multiple, distinct emails to be automatically generated

      This would enable really awesome integration with other software. I'm thinking specifically of Trello, but i'm sure it applies elsewhere as well. (To use the email-to-Trello feature, you have to put tags in the subject line, etc., which I don't want in the emails that my colleagues receive notifying them of the newly published document.)

      • improve placement of Form Publisher columns in destination Sheet

        In the Google Spreadsheet which collects responses to our Google Form, the data collection spreasheet is not the first tab, as we have added a pivot table which summarizes the spreadsheet data in the first tab. Form Publisher incorrectly added its [Form Publisher], Increment, [Form Publisher] Doc URL and [Form Publisher] PDF URL columns to the first spreadsheet rather than the one which contains the actual form data.

          • Quiz Stipulation

            When making a Google Form and using it as a quiz, be able to set Form Publisher to say that when a person has reached a certain percent or number correct on the quiz, that Form Publisher than go and create a Certificate of Completion. My company wants to use Google Forms to administer trainings but need to have a certificate of completition to go with the trianing.

            • Users can choose their own separator character for checkbox items (other than comma)

              The answers of checkbox questions will be displayed and separated by comma. It would be great if I can choose my preferred separator characters other than comma, such as

              ;
              |
              /
              -
              "whitespace"
              "newline"

              For example:
              Question: What kind of coffee do you like?
              Option:
              [_] hot
              [_] sweet
              [_] creamy
              [_] non-caffeine

              Template --> I like <<What kind of coffee do you like?>> coffee.
              Result --> I like hot sweet creamy coffee.

              • Publish as Draft

                Some forms I am building are very complex and it would be great to be able to Publish (Draft) allowing me to save what I have filled in so far and then come back to complete my form at a later time. My forms could have up to 7 different pages of inputs broken out by document section.

                • Have an answer visible throughout the form

                  Have a question at the beginning of the form and have the answer visible throughout the remainder of the form.

                  Example:
                  We use forms to finalize contracts, that requires a serial number of the equipment to be finalized, having that serial number visible throughout the form would help allot. We use a tablet to finalize and people can be called away, distracted or want to have multiple tabs open to finalize multiple pieces of equipment.

                  • Markers in header and/or footer

                    It would be very helpful if markers worked in the header and/or footer of a template so if it runs onto two (or more) pages, there is an identifying marker on each page such as <<Timestamp>>_<<Last Name>>.

                      I would like to see FormPublisher give the option to split the pdf's it generates. I have a single form that ends up having to be split into two sheets. Would be great if form publish could do this itself! :D

                              I'd like to have users fill out one form and then export the results of each page of the form into a separate tab in a linked spreadsheet so I can transform the data later.
                              Alternatively, if I could use the title of a page as a marker, I could jury rig something

                              • Compete with WebMerge

                                I've just recently discovered FormPublisher, and it is outstanding - I've been looking for something with similar capabilities in the G Suite ecosystem for a while.

                                If you had an API for the data input side (instead of just Google Forms), you could compete with WebMerge quite successfully. Your most expensive package is peanuts compared with what they charge, and you're doing almost the same thing. If you ported an API to Zapier, IFTTT, etc., you could significantly expand your user base and revenue.

                                Thank you for the good work, and good luck if you decide to consider this suggestion.

                                • Send single form response to emails at a certain time

                                  Send single form response to emails at a certain time. For example, 20 people fill out the survey/form and submit it. At a certain time of day, like 5:00pm, the submissions would be loaded to one email and then sent as one email to different people. That way at the end of the day those people wouldn’t receive 20 different emails, but one that has links to the 20 different responses.

                                    The possibility to add a marker inside an image in a Doc would be awesome. Markers <<>> won't be recognized inside images, so I can't customize my templates that have text inside the image.

                                      It would be great if there was functionality that would allow the form to be E-mailed to different addresses based on a question. For example:

                                      User 1 files out a form. They indicate they are in the high school. I’d like the form to be E-mailed to user1@school.com as well as hsprincipal@school.com

                                      User 2 files out a form. They indicate they are in the middle school. I’d like the form to be E-mailed to user2@school.comas well as msprincipal@school.com

                                          I have several fields for numbers, and I currently display in a doc as a table. I would like to be able to also auto generate a pie chart with this data within the doc template.
