    It would be nice if the pdf can be emailed from a 'donotreply@gmail.com' kind of email address instead of the person who set up the form.

    • selecting the file format/type in email, ability to choose certain data to be sent, more markers support, generating special code

      These are the missing pieces that are shying us away from FormPublisher:

      1. Ability to choose what file format to save in Google Drive (pdf or google doc) and choose what file format to share through the email link, either pdf or google doc.

      2. Ability to create and share multiple Google doc or pdf containing different information for different recipients. Very useful when sending notifications while not divulging confidential information to some users.

      3. Very limited markers when creating the email template. We want our customers to feel special when we use their names when we notify them, and…

      • Resize uploaded images

        The new option to upload images to appear as actual images on the pdf, rather than just links, is excellent. But these cannot be resized and one photo tends to fill a whole side of A4, where I would like 4 or 6 to a page. So, for instance, if I have a marker in a table cell, the image should resize to fit within the cell.

          • Be able to change email that form publisher sends from easily

            I created the form using one domain and now we've had to purchase a new domain and I need to transfer everything to the new domain before the old one expires. My .org email is where the completed forms are sent from currently. I'm able to change the destination of the forms, but I need them to be sent from my new .com email. I'm at a loss as to how to do this without loosing everything.

            • PDF and Doc links not inserted in the response spreadsheet

              We were thinking of buying a paying plan but actually when we answer to our form, a google doc and a pdf are well generated in my drive folder but there is no link to these documents in the response spreadsheet... No [Form Publisher] columns and links ... It's a bit desapointing as we were about to buy the illimited plan ... thank you for your answer

              • Multiple form output to one generated Doc or Sheet

                The ability to have the data from one form generated by multiple users compiled into one Doc or Sheet. For example: User A completes Form 1 and the information is sent to Sheet X. User B completes Form 1 and the information is also sent to Sheet X, information would just be in a different row or column; so on and so forth.

                  • Allow report to be re-created / manual trigger of Form Publisher script for particular report

                    I recently discovered a problem with the output from Form Publisher. I modified my template and form to work around the issue, but now I can't refresh/recreate the reports created from the last few form submissions. It would be nice if there was an option to refresh an existing report or re-publish a report when errors are corrected.

                    • Display Variable Names

                      It would be great if there was a paired GDoc plugin which gave you a field picker for the corresponding form so you can add them in without typing them all (especially useful for more complex question types). An alternative short-term solution would be to generate a list of the variable names in the form (rather than those in the template) so these can be copied and pasted over...

                      • 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.

                        • Conditional Pdf Generation

                          Only generate the Pdf document if a certain field is in the affirmative. I.e., I only need a Pdf if it is a new application, therefore, I have a field named "New App". If "New App" is "Yes" then generate the Pdf file.

                          • Customize the "From:" of the email that is sent

                            It wasn't until tonight, when I called Google support, that I realized that the reason why my email filter wasn't working correctly is because my other email address is tied to my main one.

                            Here's the issue. When the forms are completed I set it to email me a copy of the completed form. However, the intent is that I know that the form has been sent. Because the "To:" address is the primary user and the other email address is also tied to the email address even with a filter all the messages get filed away. So, I have…

                              I would like to be able to auto generate an email to someone that is mentioned in the form and the pdf be sent as an attachment to that person as well. For example, if I am filling out the form and I type in an email address, I want that person to also get a copy of the PDF.

                              • Bug Fixing for Checkboxes.

                                The way checkboxes are managed now is not satisfactory.

                                Google Sheet puts a Coma and a Space between different answers.
                                Example= answera, answerb, answerc, answerd, answere, ..., and so on

                                Form Publisher (I do not know why) just eliminates the space. I think this is a BUG.

                                Consequently, the result in my merged template looks like a very long word. Totally unreadable.
                                Example= answera,answerb,answerc,answerd,answere,..., and so on.

                                Can you see what I mean?
                                Maybe the solution is easy on this one.

                                In addition, this user had a very good idea:

                                    is there any way you can be implemented into the new Google Forms? I don't see the ability to use your add-on when transitioning into the new google forms.

                                    • Customize Increment# format

                                      Would like to use the increment number to generate a unique ID# for each submitted form. Would be handy to add some customization to the increment number (add text in front or more digits, ex: CR00001)

                                      • Have The Google Form URL in Spreadsheet (as PDF & Sheet URL)

                                        I would like a Form URL in the Spreadsheet as the PDF

                                        It will be more easy to modify the Form

                                        • 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.
