Overview
In it's simplest form, Doc Variables allow you to quickly add a variable to any document in any style.  A sidebar interface generates a form which can be filled into replace the variable(s) with the values entered.  Great tool for creating templates that might be shared across a team to create consistent output (e.g. contracts, on-boarding information, or client reports).

Latest Feature: Create multiple documents with the same template using a Google Sheet as the source of values for your variables (similar to a mail merge).  This feature is available for trial and subscribers users only.

Note: Doc Variables remains free, but a subscription is required after 20 uses.  Non-subscribers will still be able to use all the basic features of Doc Variables with a delay prior to applying variables.

 Example Variable Syntaxes:

${Variable Name}
${Variable Name::~Default Value} ("Default Value" will be pre-filled)
${Textarea Name::textarea::~Add this text as default content.}
${Select Variable::options::One,~Two,Three} (Two will be selected)
${Other Doc::file} (Imports a separate document)
${My Logo::image::width=200,height=200} (Adds an image from your drive with the width of 200 and height of 200)

Thank you for the great tool first. The tool is great to have but lacks of usability. As far as my experience, one has only 1 shot to set all the variables values on the document. It will be very helpful is the edition flexibility of the variables are at the same level as the edition flexibility of the document itself. One can change the variables, settings, values, as simple as changing a word of the document.

If you save the template as a copy you do not need to replace the variables in the document.

I love it however, I work at a school and tried to help one of the secretaries use it and it says she needs an administer permission. That's weird because we work for the same school board.... please advise.

Great. If I had any spending authority I'd domain install this thing and get y'all paid! I'm basically a flunky around here though so I'll just pour one out for you.

It's a great app, especially if you have long documents. Wish it could edit several files at once rather 1 file at the time - it's very time consuming having to restart and reapply Doc Variables to a document collection, for example. Otherwise works smoothly.
