Overview
Upon each new form submission, the add-on Form Publisher is triggered, gets a template you have previously selected from Google Drive, makes a copy of it and replaces specific placeholders in this template by the answers submitted in the form.
When Google Form alone only gives you raw data in a spreadsheet, Form Publisher lets you generate files to present your data in a more suitable way, facilitating analysis, sharing and presentation. Your form really becomes the starting point of a workflow.

Form Publisher is quite simple to use: simply create your template as a Google doc or a Google spreadsheet. Use simple <<markers>> to indicate where you want each answer to the form questions to appear in the template, and the markers will be replaced by the answers in the final document.
Plus, Form Publisher verifies if all the markers are recognized both in the form and in 
the template, so no information ends up missing in the generated documents.

Productivity is optimized with automated notifications to any email address upon form submission. It’s also possible to give different permissions on each generated files to specific users.

Key features:
→ generate spreadsheets or documents, based on your need. We can also automatically export in PDF the Google Doc or Google Sheet created.
→ store generated files in one output folder in Google Drive
→ easily differentiate generated files thanks to an incremental number applied to each file name. You can also reuse answers to your form questions in the title of each document.
→  Send an email to notify form respondents or other email addresses upon form submission / file creation
→ share the generated files and manage user permissions so contacts can view / comment / edit in Google Drive. Or attach the generated PDF directly to the email notification.

We answer many use cases! 
→ create invoices or contract agreements and automatically sent to clients upon form submission
→ generate documents with a professional layout for presentations
→ manage confidentiality of generated documents with permissions in public structures or in schools (registration forms, health surveys…)
→ easily integrate forms to your workflow: create a form, have it filled by someone else and automatically have a PDF sent to a third party

Free plan lets you generate 100 files per month, you can purchase a paid plan to remove this quota.

Wow - this app is fantastic! Amazingly simple and powerful, and does what I thought I would have to spend $100s to create using WordPress plugins or a developer. Thank you for sharing.

This really is the biz - your clients fill in a Google Form, the results get stored in a Google Sheet, a personalised invoice/confirmation/document is created using Google Slides and their data, and finally a PDF of that slide is generated and (if you wish) can be automatically emailed to them! Job done :-) I used it for a research project to auto-generate certificates of completion

Great add on. I struggle with a few things however, cannot seem to output checkboxes into individual bullet points. It can also get a little tricky the more complicated the form. Having to create titles such as "First Name" "Job title" and "Next of Kin First Name" "Next of kin Job title" to get the separate outputs.

Indispensable! We use this program daily in our animal rescue transport group to "echo" back information submitted and notify our administrators that transport in needed. Don't know what we'd do without it!

Hi, is it possible to print the PDF only of the Sheet1? Also sending from another email + CC + BCC? 5 stars if it's possible!

Hi, yes you can print only the Sheet1 of your template, you just have to right-click on all sheets that you don't want to print and select "Hide". For the moment, you cannot send emails from another email or add CC or BCC directly from Form Publisher. However, you can configure YAMM to make that happen, as explained in this article of our documentation: https://support.form-publisher.com/hc/en-us/articles/212687629.
