Overview
Simple tool to add variables in content, title, header, and footer. Great way to add easy replacements in docs and templates!
In it's simplest form, Doc Variables allow you to quickly add a variable to any document in any style.  A sidebar interface generates a form which can be filled into replace the variable(s) with the values entered.  Great tool for creating templates that might be shared across a team to create consistent output (e.g. contracts, on-boarding information, or client reports).

Latest Feature: New user interface!  We've integrated the Semantic UI to give the Doc Variables a cleaner and updated look.  We have also included the following new features:

- References (reference external data)
- Hidden Fields
- Constants

Note: Doc Variables remains free, but a subscription is required after 20 uses.  Non-subscribers will still be able to use all the basic features of Doc Variables with a delay prior to applying variables.

 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)
${My Logo::image::width=200,height=200} (Adds an image from your drive with the width of 200 and height of 200)

Doc variables is a fantastic tool! It is extremely easy to use once you know how to write the variables. Then with a click of a button, you can ensure all the right information is listed consistently throughout your document. We use it to write RFPs, proposals, and contracts. Using Doc Variables streamlines the process of entering in names, addresses, pricing, etc., and gives us the peace of mind that all of the "i"s are dotted and "t"s are crossed!

I love this app! We use it all the time to quickly populate Google Docs and Slides. The Doc Merge utility is great for auto-populating a bunch of documents from a single Google Sheet.

Very useful. I need more time work on my Google Docs templates to use many of the features though. "So much time, so little to do. Scratch that; reverse it" - Gene Wilder as Willie Wonka

Love it! Saves the trouble of browsing to specific points in a document to edit various fields. I know this is a 'free' add-on but I do have 2 suggestions though: 1. Make it easy to update variables from the Doc Variables pane. We can 'hack' it directly in the document but my first impulse is always to right click somewhere in the Doc Variables pane. 2. Allow multiline options for the Dropdown type. This is helpful for organizations with multiple offices, e.g. having to select Address-1 for certain documents, and Address-2 for others. Thanks very much!
