Overview
Use a Google Form to select which Doc(s) to append from a list, multiple-choice, or checkbox Form question -- pre-populated with Doc titles from a folder in Drive.

HOW IT WORKS
- Hooks up to a folder in Drive, turning one of your form questions into a Doc picker -- including the ability to use checkboxes or a "Select all" question to append a single form response to multiple docs.
- Lets you choose which question responses to append -- e.g. leaving certain questions out can be a powerful way to keep "shared" and "private" feedback on the same doc separate.
- Can include Timestamp and Username as fields to include.
- Appends form responses in one of three ways: Bulleted list, separate vertical tables, or new rows in a single horizontal table.

IDEAS FOR USAGE
- Keep a Google Doc per student where you log a running record of observations around a particular skill, like reading or numeracy.
- Use for documenting teach inter-visitations, where each teacher gets a single running document of all visits to their classroom.
- Great for applying custom, Forms-based rubric assessments on student documents.  Integrates nicely with Google - Classroom assignments -- just choose the folder that contains all student Docs and get on with grading all "turned in" docs in your own way.
- Set up a single Doc per kid via autoCrat or Doctopus and then post daily or weekly "prompts" to the end of the doc via a Google Form. 
- Great for peer review protocols on student Docs that you have editing rights on.  Give all students the link to your form and their peer assessments will all paste into the bottom of the selected student doc.

I am very frustrated myself. When did you notice that it wasn't working anymore?

Ditto to what everyone is saying below! We have quite a few teachers that have emailed me to say it's not working! Please fix and provide an update! :)

Not to pile on, but it is not working for me either... Interestingly enough though I do have a Form created in 2017 that uses Doc Appender and it still works....BUT no other ones do.....

I am having the same issue as the other most recent reviewer - worked fine last week now won't append/populate in the connected doc - what's up? When will this be fixed? What is the problem? HELP! It was working up until yesterday morning - a colleague used it successfully in the AM and I could not by about 12 EST.

When it works I LOVE IT and when it doesn't, I hate it... I cannot get doc appender to put my responses INTO the documents. It shows it's submitted but it doesn't appear in the docs. It worked last week and now it doesn't. I've tried everything to fix it but the folder it's attached to just constantly shows a broken image... so somewhere some link is broken. It's pretty frustrating as this is where most of my documentation for teaching resides. I hope they can fix it soon...

I could not get this working until today. There must have been a bug since beginning of Sept because it would just spin and spin but tried one last time today and it worked

Loved Doc Appender last year but this year it is not working well. It seems there are lots of issues on the forums. I am using it with Autocrat and it just isn't working consistently with all documents.
