## How Document Studio Works

Document Studio allows you to automate the creation and sharing of documents in a few easy steps.

1. Add the source data in a Google Sheet or import from Excel and CSV files. You can also create documents from new Google Forms submissions.

2. Build your templates with markers in Google Docs, Google Sheets or Google Slides.

3. Document studio will quickly generate multiple documents, one per row in the source sheet, replacing the markers in the template with the actual data.

## Bonus Features in Document Studio

Document Studio includes Mail Merge so you can automatically send the generated documents to one or more recipients in personalized emails. The included WYSIWYG email designer helps you create nice looking emails with your own brand logo images.

All your documents are stored in Google Drive and you can personalized the file name as well the folder path where those files are saved. Use built-in sharing options to immediately share the generated documents with customers, team members or anyone else.

Your information is 100% safe in your Google Drive. The Google Documents Add-on does not store, share, or upload any of your data.

I'm having problems with connecting from Google Sheets to a Google Doc. The "file chooser" is only a blank window (white) and no documents show up. Is there some setting that I'm missing here?

Really handy add-on. I'm using the export format as a google doc though, and not able to get the link included in the email it triggers, any advice?

Great add-on, but I am getting a "sign in with google temporarily disabled for this app" error that is preventing me from using it. Used it for a long time with great success so I hope we can figure this one out. Definitely worth the cost to date.

I have a doubt. While it is working perfectly as my requirement, i just want to make sure that the last entered values/recent entries (including generating the invoice and sending mails) need only be run while merging. That way i will be spared from merging every entry in my spreadsheet everytime (there is a limit of 20 such mergings for one day for free version) Sorry for asking. I want to confirm this before making a purchase of the premium version.

Fills a huge gap in the Google apps space. Excellent tool for automating some heavy lifting tasks in an elegant and efficient way. Delighted to have stumbled across Doc Studio. We will have many more uses for this going forward.

The Document Studio made my day giving me the functionality I needed for a fraction of cost of equivalent MS Office based solutions. Moreover, I have been thinking about completely abandoning MS environment for a long time and what finally convinced me was the Document Studio. Great app and time-saver with excellent support.

This is an amazing product, we use it daily in my office. The $27 fee is worth it. We really like the feature where you press submit and then it is sent automatically to the printer. The customer service is top notch. Questions are answered very quickly!

The interface is nice and easy to use, and the range of applications makes this a useful tool. However, there are a few issues that are preventing me from making full use of this Add-on which I will post here because support is lacking (as others have recently pointed out in reviews): (1) The Add-on keeps disconnecting for some reason. I set everything up in a sheet, run it, and it works great for a little while. Then I find it is greyed out in the Add-ons menu and inaccessible. I fixed this a couple times by opening it in a new sheet and restoring the license, but I don't understand why this is is happening and it prevents me from incorporating it into a stable workflow automation. (I am currently using it to merge information generated by a query function, but I doubt this is the problem because it also happened with files that were not using query functions.) (2) When using the Add-on to send to cloud-print, the formatting is not preserved. That is, the PDFs it generates look great—just as I intend. But when I pass the results to cloud-print the formatting is not the same, preventing use of this part of the automation (and wasting paper). A fix for this would be great. (3) Similarly, when using the "Merge in a Single Document" option, rather than taking outputs of individually merged documents and joining them, the function loops through the data in a way that breaks down various formatting details, such as the fact that in a letter the header on the first page is often different from the rest. In this example, when I tried to merge 50 letters into a single document the result was a file that only had the first page header on the first page of the first letter rather that the first page of each letter. I hope this gets fixed as well. I also have a suggestion, which is to enhance the scheduling options for merging. Currently there is the option to "Merge Every Hour" but there should also be the option to the effect of merging whenever a new complete case is available. This is because merge automation can result in incomplete documents being generated when it is being used on data that first needs to be complete and the data is not entered via Google Form. (My current workaround for this is using a query function that only pulls in complete cases.)

This would get five stars if I could get any response to multiple emails over the last week to both the developer and customer service, after receiving an automatic reply. The interface is smooth and easy to understand and the results are quite spectacular, but the trigger is not working... which for me is almost the most important part if the process. Preview works, but only takes the top line from the results spreadsheet and it's not practical to use on a regular basis anyway. I understand that there are going to be problems here and there, but I do not understand absolutely no response when begging for help.
