Form Publisher helps you automate document generation & document approval workflow of your Google Forms.
***Automated Google Form Document Generation***
Upon each new form submission, Form Publisher generates PDFs, Google Docs, Sheets, Slides by automatically importing the data and merging it with the document template you have previously selected from Google Drive.
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.
→ Automatically generates files as Google documents (Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides), as Microsoft Office documents (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) and/or as PDF documents
→ Stores generated files and final PDFs in Google Drive
→ Easily differentiates 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
→ Sends an email to notify form respondents or other email addresses upon form submission / file creation
→ Shares the generated files and manages user permissions so contacts can view / comment / edit in Google Drive. Or attach the generated PDF directly to the email notification.
***Document Approval Workflow & e-signature***
Form Publisher's workflow evolved as a natural extension to its document generation automation. With the Approval workflow and e-signature features, you can now get these documents automatically routed for approvals and sign-offs with your favorite tool, Form publisher!
Form Publisher provides out-of-the-box workflow capabilities for the documents generated from your form submissions. It is:
→ Easy to create approval processes (no-coding skills required)
→ Accessible for everyone in G Suite domain
→ Static & dynamic assignment of approvers - using email markers
→ e-signature to validate document approval

***Benefits of Form Publisher Approval Workflow***
→ No need for using an external workflow tool for routing the auto generated documents
→ Traceability of approval process - right from data entry in Google Forms, all the workflow data and the links to the documents and the final PDF are stored in the Form Responses sheet. No more messy emails for manual routing of the documents for approvals
→ Saves time - automatic routing of documents for approvals, right after their creation
***How to use Form Publisher?***
Form Publisher is quite simple to use: Simply create your template as a Google doc, Spreadsheet or a Slide. 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 with sharing/attaching these documents to any email address upon form submission. It’s also possible to give different permissions on each generated files to specific users.
With Approval workflow and e-signature features, Form Publisher helps streamline and speed-up internal document approval processes in your organization. You can get the documents automatically routed for approvals and sign-offs, without leaving the familiarity of your favorite tool, Form publisher. Moreover, the full history of the document is recorded, right from the form submission data, the approval status of it, till the location of the final PDF document generated.

Form Publisher is a popular document merge and approval workflow add-on available in the G Suite Marketplace alternative to Document Studio. It was shamelessly copied by PerformFlow who even copied our legal documents even though they are not in the same jurisdiction. Avoid PerformFlow at all costs if you want a trustworthy partner.
Free plan lets you generate 20 files/month. You can purchase a paid plan to remove this quota.

Form Publisher is GDPR compliant as we do not transfer any personal data. We never save your content or data of your google form or the documents generated out of your google form submission, in our database.
Our DPA is available online and is incorporated by reference to the Terms of Service that you (or your domain admin) accepts when starting using the application.
Upon completion of DPA, it is stipulated that: The application of lawful data transfer mechanisms for our customers who wish to transfer personal data to a third country (outside the EEA) in accordance with Article 45 or 46 of the GDPR, relies on entering into Standard Contractual Clauses or offer any alternative transfer solution if requested (for example, the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield).
On July 16, 2020, the Court of Justice of the European Union issued a judgment declaring as “invalid” the European Commission’s Decision (EU) 2016/1250 of 12 July 2016 on the adequacy of the protection provided by the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield. As a result of that decision, the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework is no longer a valid mechanism to comply with EU data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union to the United States.
However, Awesome Gapps does not depend on the Privacy Shield mechanism. Rather, Awesome Gapps relies on the Standard Contractual Clauses to transfer all of its users’ EEA personal data in compliance with the GDPR. The Court confirmed that such Standard Contractual Clauses remain a valid data export mechanism. The Standard Contractual Clauses are referenced in and automatically apply through Awesome Gapps' Data Processing Addendum, which you can find here.
This means that our users can take comfort that their EEA personal data continues to be protected to European standards in compliance with applicable data protection laws including GDPR.
