Overview
Automate the creation and sharing of personalized documents with autoCrat.

Autocrat is a multi-purpose document merge tool that allows you to take data from a spreadsheet and merge it into a document via a template.  Tell Autocrat which fields to merge via <<merge tags>> and then let Autocrat mass-generate personalized documents.  Optionally send the documents as email attahchments.  Optionally tell Autocrat to run when new forms are submitted to created truly automated processes.

***** NEW FEATURES as of v3.1 release  08/14/2017 ********
Now you can use Google Slides as your template in Autocrat.  Merge data from Google Spreadsheets directly into a single Google Slide Presentation. 

***** NEW FEATURES as of v3.0 release  05/07/2016 ********

In response to user feedback and demand, the new version of Autocrat now has the following upgrades and new features:

 -- A single, simpler user interface.  We got rid of the sidebar.  Everything happens through the primary dialogue.
 -- More modern design/interface.
 -- Cleaner code under the hood. Hopefully you notice faster performance and more reliable triggers.
 -- Single document mode.  You can now produce a single document for a merge job.  E.g. a single doc or PDF, with each row of data that meets your job criteria merged into it.  Previously you could only create one document per row of data.  This was one of the most asked for feature requests.  (NOTE:  This only works for docs at the moment, not spreadsheets)
 -- Image merge.  You can now merge images into your docs from a publicly hosted image URL.
 -- Hyperlink merge. Easily add hyperlinks to your merged Google docs.

I keep getting a "rate limit exceeded" warning on this and I don't know why.

Hi it keeps saying: Rows that will be merged: No rows will be merged. None meet merge criteria. :(

Try deleting the last four columns on the sheet. One of my sheets does this. Really annoying.

Is Autocrat still supported? It seems like it has been a long time since any news about updates. I've loved Autocrat, but is it time to switch?

This works great! Not sure if its a limitation imposed by Google, but I would love to be able to work with a document out of a Team Drive instead of having to save it on My Drive.

You might want to retry Team Drive files as I've had this working on file saved in a Team Drive

I love Autocrat! I'm a 5th grade teacher and a huge fan. The updates are FANTASTIC! I cannot thank you enough for saving me so much time. One of my favorite ways to use it is to communicate student progress with parents. BIG TIME SAVER! Great add-on!
