Overview
Form Ranger allows you to auto-populate the choices in list, multiple choice, checkbox or grid question options from columns of data in any Google Sheet™ or Doctopus roster.

Great for ensuring form choices match values in an existing database of records, such as students, inventory items, expected attendees, workshop or session titles, etc. -- useful for then applying matching formulas such as COUNTIF, VLOOKUP, MATCH, and others.

Can be set to repopulate options on form submit -- opening the possibility of (somewhat) dynamic form options provided you are willing to explore spreadsheet formulas.  For example, use spreadsheet formulas like IF and COUNTIF in the form spreadsheet to produce a "shrinking" list of options with availability.  Likewise, produce a "growing" list of checkbox options by applying the UNIQUE formula to a list of open-ended submissions, leaving the "other" checkbox option turned on.

For users of the popular Doctopus Add-on for sheets, Form Ranger includes rosters (student name lists) automatically.

It really doesnt work properly. Even if you have the "Refresh After Submit", new entries will not show in the list. You can force the list to refresh by starting Formranger in the form edit. But of course this defeats the purpose of auto updates. It's free, so beggers can't be choosy, but still, it's not very good.

Looks like there's an issue with it updating the form questions since I see it was able to get the questions listed.

It was helpful until it was no longer working. I had given a try to "Dynamic Fields - Update Forms Questions"

The add on is really of great help! I had a question regarding how can we get more than two options N/A after the limit has been reached? I tried but only one option is changing to N/A after the limit crosses and others are still visible even though the limit has been reached. If someone could help out, it would be much appreciated. Thankyou!!

What was once a great tool has sucked for some time now. Currently just doesn't work at all. Literally completely useless.
