  1. Use multiple templates with one form

    I would love to be able to filter the information from the form into multiple templates. It would be super helpful to be able to collect all the information I need in one form, but share it with different people using different templates all linked to the same form.

    • Option to update the generated document

      After a form has been filled it's possible as a user to 'edit your response' at any time. Doing this updates the spreadsheet associated with it, but it generates a whole new document. For my purposes at least, this makes the add on unusable. It would be great to have the option to decide if I want to replace the existing document (essentially updating it).

      • Using Bullets for checkbox items.

        I would love for the markers used with checkboxes to show up in a bulleted list in my document template. It currently just puts a comma between each item and it makes it jumbled to read.

        • Remove a section of the Google doc where the fields in it are all no response

          Where logical branching takes place, an entire section of the Google doc may need removing where the content of the Google doc is descriptive. At the moment, the tag is removed, but can a section be dependent on there being data to reflect complex forms and branching?

          • I would love to be able to add a 'upload file' to a form.

            The files could be stored on GDrive and made available as a link in the spreadsheet.

            • Pre-fill Data from another spreadsheet

              It would be cool if a form can be pre-filled from "master data" on another spreadsheet. If I for example enter my email address it must pre-fill the form with my name, surname, DOB etc. Obviously, the data must exist on the referenced spreadsheet (database). This would be nice for a user as he/she doesn't have to enter the "master data" every time they complete your form

              • All form submits to same document (merge)

                Instead of having one file per form submit created from the template, merge the new data to a new page in the very same document.
                Why? Because you'd like to print all of the data.

                • Allow FormPublisher to connect to data from pre-existing Google sheets responses

                  Allow FormPublisher to connect to data from pre-existing Google Sheets (Google Form responses), so that documents can be created from preexisting responses. Also, when the form is published, I noticed that the document does not populate with the name of the form and questions that the form asks. It only populates responses. Is there a way to change that?

                  • New generic marker

                    Hi thanks for this great apps.
                    It would be great to have a generic markers like <<username>> which could contains the emails adress for users using google apps for work.
                    I'm using form publisher in google apps for work context and I don't want to ask user to fill a fields "email" to sent them an email.

                        • Create Subfolders for each document

                          After the form is submitted and the Google Sheet populated / emailed, instead (or alternatively) rather than dumping it into a master folder, would it be possible for a sub-folder for each submission to be created?
                          The idea is to allow supporting documents be added to each submission after the fact.. Would rather automate the process over manually creating folders and moving files.

                          • Allow users to choose the time zone for "Timestamp" and "Now" keywords

                            Currently, when using "Timestamp" and "Now" the time is written in GMT, in a 24-hour format. As I am using this to record when a form is submitted, I would appreciate being able to customize this. Even if the 24-hour format stays, I would like the option to have the time in my own time zone.

                              The option to save to PDF is wonderful, but I have a problem that some documents need to be saved in LANDSCAPE format to be viewed/read easily. I would like to suggest some additional control to allow PDFs to be in portrait, landscape, or "automatic." In addition, I would like to allow the option to "hide gridlines." These controls are available in Google Sheets's option to Download to PDF, and they would be good to have here in FormPublisher as well.

I am using the form to collect updates from committee chairs from an organization I work with. Rather than have 10 documents with the update from each committee, I would like to have 1 documents that includes all 10 updates. Is this possible?

                                    • Time Format Option

                                      Time questions change format from 12 hour to 24 hour format when put in the finished document. My sheet that is automatically generated has the 12 hour format, as it is entered on the form. However, the form publisher document is military time. Can this be fixed?

                                      • Markers header footer on 1st page

                                        Markers in headers and footers are working except on the first page if its header and footer are different from the rest of the headers and footers in the document.
                                        It would be nice to fix it
