AVOID THIS. Does not automatically update fields without paying. Cannot remove it even after "Global Reset".

I test the free version - inputs from gsheet, it is a complete waste of time, as the link between gsheet and the form is passive. There where no effect to changes i mad in the gsheet inputs.

Could do alot better. Addon works the same as the FormRanger addon except that it accepts more sources for importing and linking dynamic information. It's better in that it has ondemand updates (refreshes information in forms) but the limitation of only 3 requests makes the free version quite useless. FormRanger lets you setup a cron job to refresh the data every hour or on every user submission. Also I've seen users having issues where it is not working if they have multiple google accounts - the solution is opening an incognito window - seriously this is USER UNFRIENDLY! Many users will miss this part and move along (not before bagging your product). I'm sure many people have multiple Google accounts these days. You seriously need to fix this issue to be competitive with FormRanger addon otherwise I would recommend users to just download and install the latter.

Another issue with this add-on are its terms of use. They get FULL access to your whole Google Drive, they even state that they have the right to copy any and all of your files. If someone is using this for work or they hold confidential information on there this would be MAJOR security violation.

Dear Ryan, sorry for answering late. This problem should be fixed already. To use inkognito mode was just a workaround to check if the problem is really caused by multiple logins. Best Regards apps experts team

The create mapping dialog isn't showing up. If the developers can get that, which is the core functionality of this add-on, working again, I will consider changing my rating.

Dear Shane, this problems occurs only if a user is logged in with multiple google accounts in one chrome browser session. Please make that you are only logged in with that account that you are want to use for the add-on. If you want to make sure or test this you can open chrome in inkognito mode and log in with just your relevant googl account. We searching for alternative to redesign our welcome dialogue as well.
