Overview
Automate the creation and sharing of personalized documents with autoCrat.

Autocrat is a multi-purpose document merge tool that allows you to take data from a spreadsheet and merge it into a document via a template.  Tell Autocrat which fields to merge via <<merge tags>> and then let Autocrat mass-generate personalized documents.  Optionally send the documents as email attahchments.  Optionally tell Autocrat to run when new forms are submitted to created truly automated processes.

***** NEW FEATURES as of v3.1 release  08/14/2017 ********
Now you can use Google Slides as your template in Autocrat.  Merge data from Google Spreadsheets directly into a single Google Slide Presentation. 

***** NEW FEATURES as of v3.0 release  05/07/2016 ********

In response to user feedback and demand, the new version of Autocrat now has the following upgrades and new features:

 -- A single, simpler user interface.  We got rid of the sidebar.  Everything happens through the primary dialogue.
 -- More modern design/interface.
 -- Cleaner code under the hood. Hopefully you notice faster performance and more reliable triggers.
 -- Single document mode.  You can now produce a single document for a merge job.  E.g. a single doc or PDF, with each row of data that meets your job criteria merged into it.  Previously you could only create one document per row of data.  This was one of the most asked for feature requests.  (NOTE:  This only works for docs at the moment, not spreadsheets)
 -- Image merge.  You can now merge images into your docs from a publicly hosted image URL.
 -- Hyperlink merge. Easily add hyperlinks to your merged Google docs.

Now that it can only dump files into MyDrive and never into any other folder... kinda a pain. It helps... but still leaves a lot of manual tasks to do.

I love the simplicity of autocrat and find it amazingly good for what it is designed to do. My only wishes are that it had better functionality int terms of the emails sending: 1. I would like to do a mail merge that jsut sends emails, not also a document 2. In the body of the email template you can't add links or formatting, it can only be plain text

It's fine for what I need to do. So thanks. But the fact that I cannot re-run any of the jobs after correcting formatting mistakes, makes the point of saving merge jobs in the first place completely obsolete. This has got to be a bug and I wished somebody would fix it, especially since I'm not the only one with this issue.

I have been using this app for 5 years without a glitch, to generate a complex set of PDFs approx once per month. It was very fiddly and frustrating to set up, but that was years ago. Since then - an absolute dream. If you are prepared to put in the initial work, highly recommended.

This used to work for me, but now when I run a job it doesn't populate the dynamic fields at all, it just leaves the ducment template as is with the <<tags>> unchanged. No idea why.

In Short: Problematic but still worked better than any other option tested. I have been trying to use this off and on for months. First, I also use another app with the Sheet which requires some extra headers. This caused Autocrat to crash until I was able to change the First Data Row value. After that, it stopped crashing, but nothing was showing up in the output folder. I thought it was just outright failing, but turns out it was just putting the merged documents into My Drive instead of the folder I specified. Rerunning the task would see that the files already existed and just exit the process without providing any information or fixing the folder.

It was usable, even if it was quite limited. It does what it can pretty quickly, at least quicker than doing it manually. But as of writing this review, 10 September 2022, AutoCrat decided to break and is no longer usable. Tried reinstalling multiple times to no avail. The add-on would either not load, or takes a long time to load but the menus would break.
