  1. Publish all records as one document from template.

    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…

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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.

                    • Add option to require multiple approvers

                      Instead of having a single person able to override all other approvers (1 approval = approval status), allow an option for multiple layers of approvers. I also really like the reply-all function when the Workflow option is off, but I want reply-all function when Workflow option is ON.

                        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.

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

                                    • Use calculated fields in file name and email.

                                      We would like to use the job number in our file name, however, the job number is created based on answers in the form... it is not something someone creates themselves. This feature would allow us to add a column in the response sheet that has a formula calculating the job number for each entry. Then, we could use the result in this column as a marker just like any other.

                                      For instance, we would use it to combine the date of the job form answer (Jan 1, 2018) with the Account Manager answer (John Smith). The result is a…

                                      • 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.)

                                        • add batch pdf email feature and unique user output.

                                          The batch email feature would be great because we receive the majority of form submissions within a ten minuter period every Tuesday. So sorting through 50 forms per unique user (we use a work around by having the email be a form question and then using <<email>> in the sharing settings. Or, if it's easier, unique Google Drive Folder output (based on an answer). That would make organization fantastic.
