## How Document Studio Works

Document Studio allows you to automate the creation and sharing of documents in a few easy steps.

1. Add the source data in a Google Sheet or import from Excel and CSV files. You can also create documents from new Google Forms submissions.

2. Build your templates with markers in Google Docs, Google Sheets or Google Slides.

3. Document studio will quickly generate multiple documents, one per row in the source sheet, replacing the markers in the template with the actual data.

## Bonus Features in Document Studio

Document Studio includes Mail Merge so you can automatically send the generated documents to one or more recipients in personalized emails. The included WYSIWYG email designer helps you create nice looking emails with your own brand logo images.

All your documents are stored in Google Drive and you can personalized the file name as well the folder path where those files are saved. Use built-in sharing options to immediately share the generated documents with customers, team members or anyone else.

Your information is 100% safe in your Google Drive. The Google Documents Add-on does not store, share, or upload any of your data.

It was super close to solving my needs and a single response from the developer would have been great as I've sent several requests for support and none have been fulfilled. Complete waste of time and energy and I would strongly suggest that if you need this for anything more than "plug and play" you stay away because there is zero support. If you need a program like this, I suggest using Jahurulislam on Fiverr. He custom built a program that does everything DocumentStudio does (and more) for a flat rate in 8 days (rather than paying per month).

Are you logged into multiple Google accounts in the same browser? Google add-ons may sometimes display an error when multiple accounts are authorized in the same browser session. Open Google Chrome, go to the menu and choose New Incognito Window. Here open the same Google Sheet and try again. Let me know if that resolves the issue?

Hi, I have been using Document Studio add-on for the past 2 years and it has saved me hundreds of hours of manual work. I have to mark university assignments and then provide highly individualized and custom feedback to 50 plus students twice a semester and I can only do it with Document Studio. I love the functionality of being able to create custom PDF files generated off a word document template and emailed to everyone as a separate email which too can be customized. I am not sure what life will be like without document studio. Thanks to the person who developed Document Studio. Keep developing it and add multi-sheet functionality so that I can run Document Studio over multiple sheets.

Sorry about the issue you are facing. Could you please reload the Google Sheet, wait for 10 seconds and try using the addon again?

I've gone back and forth on reviews here. This is a great product, and pretty much any errors it's had have been on the configuration side of things (i.e., me). However, I recently had a scenario where I added a column above the header on the response sheet, which affected the reports. I placed multiple requests with support but never received a response. After reading that others here were experiencing the same issue, even with enterprise licensing, I canceled our subscription. I received assistance only after emailing the owner of the situation at this created at my place of employment. Customer support is everything and, if Digital Inspiration can get that under control, this will be a great company. Unfortunately, I have to find another solution between now and October, when our subscription runs out, due to lack of response from the support team. I very much like the owner, Amit, and I hope he can get this part of his business organized. I think he'll do very well if that's the case.
