  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • I would love for it to create a calendar invite on Google Calendar

          It would be good for the form to create a calendar invite for a date entered onto a form

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

            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

            • Save the PDF in a different folder than the original document/spreedsheet.

              This way you can keep the original document/spreedsheet in a folder that is not shared but the PDF can be in a folder that is shared. The original document/spreedsheet will be safe from being modified by other users.

                  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.

                  • Make submitted image links into images in pdf, instead of just link text.

                    Google Forms only accepts links instead of images. FormPublisher could turn those links into images on the pdf.

                    • 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.

                          • Checkbox Answer to Show As it Looks in the Form.

                            Is it possible to answer a yes or no checkbox question in google form and have it appear in the auto-generated excel sheet as a filled/shaded box with the exact same question and options even when not chosen?

                            So the answer checked off is filled in the sheet and the one that wasn't filled stills shows up the same way as it does in the google form.

                            For example, the question on the google form...
                            Do you like the color purple?
                            [x] Yes
                            [ ] No

                            And on the excel sheet or document, I format it differently but want the…

                                • 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

                                  ;
                                  |

                                  "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>>.
