Overview
Now powered by AI with ChatGPT!  Enter variables with prompts to auto-generate unique content every time you use a Doc Variable template.

With Doc Variables, you can easily store and manipulate values within your documents, presentations, and spreadsheets. Just declare your variables in the title, body, header, or footer of the doc, and then launch Doc Variables. A form will be generated to allow you and your team members to enter values for the variables. 

This extension allows you to build complex and sophisticated templates and integrations. Great for contracts, invoices, or generating monthly reports or presentations. The Doc Merge function, Salesforce and Hubspot integrations, and other premium features can save you so much time!

Give Doc Variables a try and change the way you work with Google Workspace apps!

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)
${AI::gpt::~write an agenda}

I love this program and what it does effectively and efficiently. It's saved me and my team hours and they're so easy to work with and check in with if there are issues or concerns. 10/10.

Very powerful extension and a super responsive and helpful developer. My only criticism would be that the documentation is spread over several different sites, including a Youtube channel. It's all helpful stuff, but there really needs to be a single source of truth with links to all the various resources.

We've been using the Doc Variable add-on for over three years, and it's one of the best add-ons out there. Great Support: Whenever we encounter any issues, they jump right on it, and it's quickly sorted. User-Driven Updates: The developer is constantly adding new features based on user suggestions, which means you get exactly what most users need. Time-Saving and Error-Reducing: It's easy to miss a name or make a mistake when manually replacing information throughout a document. But with Doc Variables, we can dynamically replace repeated information, like names. No more sending out documents with the wrong name in a couple of places. Conclusion: If you're looking for an add-on that simplifies document creation and helps you avoid silly errors, Doc Variables is worth trying.

I like this app a lot. It saves me time and I love the drop down and checklist options. 4 stars because it did stop working for a while just randomly and then started working again. Not as reliable as I would like.

I wanted to give this a try so I put two date variables in the doc. One first of month and one last day of month. When the variables have been populated, by selecting first day and last day of month, both variables populated as last day of month. Wish it worked but uninstalling it now.

Extremely useful add-on. Pricing is very fair, customer support is excellent, and feedback is integrated into the add-on. Hard to find good software like this at a fair price point.

My team LOVES this add-on. Our company uses Google extensively and the ability to use a contract template with several thousand contracts per year is a game changer for us. Thank you!

I've used this in two different companies now. We love how it streamlines processes. There are a few quirky things that I can't really figure out, but overall it's a great tool!
