Mail Merge lets you create a batch of documents that are personalized for each recipient. For example, a form letter might be personalized to address each recipient by name. A data source, like a Google Sheets ™ spreadsheet is associated with the document. Placeholders--called merge fields--tell Google Docs ™ where in the document to include information from the data source. That way, it’s possible to mail merge emails, letters, envelopes or labels.

Seems pretty buggy to me. This is the first time I am trying to do a merge in Google, I always used MS before. The merge is dropping my letterhead (header), as well as five, numbered, paragraphs. I also don't see how I can access a template, which is already defined in Google Docs. We'll see if technical support helps, if so, I will update this review

I have been tying to figure out what was wrong with my google doc and google sheet as I kept getting an error message. But it turns out that I am not the only one. I'm also getting the same error as everyone else: We could not merge your document. This might happen when your document is too heavy or has too many formatting's applied. Please edit your document and try again. Looks like its broken and they don't have any support so who knows if it will ever be fixed. It was working great for the past year, up until a couple of days ago, I hope they will get the issue resplved.

Given the reviews, I had low expectations. Yes, it probably doesn't work for big mailing lists. Yes, it refused to accept any of the image types I tried to insert in the template. Also, I'm not using it to send emails. I just wanted to use data I collected in a Google form and then create nicer-looking final documents according to a template in Google Docs. It does that perfectly well and lets me export them as a pdf; even better! However, after working with the extension for a few days on my laptop and Android tablet (you have to use the browser version of Google Docs from a tablet, not the Google Docs app), I am now unable to install this extension on my wife's Google Docs account. The website just keeps giving a 404 error. Is the website down today? Oh, and I'm also now nervous that the Google Groups support is blocked because of "spam, malware, or malicious content." I can believe that this might be the result of users expressing frustration, but I really hope I didn't install malware! Getting the Google group support page fixed and available again would give me greater peace of mind! Otherwise, I may need to uninstall and find something else.

I have used this for over a year for work and it has worked perfectly -- UP UNTIL NOW!! For the past week, any document I've tried to merge keeps telling me the same error, regardless of the size or formatting of my documents (mind you it won't even merge 5 lines). Message: "OH SNAP! We could not merge your document. This might happen when your document is too heavy or has too many formattings applied. Please edit your document and try again." I wish there was someone to speak to or some sort of support team that would fix this app because it's really essential. It's clearly something very wrong with the app.

I have been experience an inability to merge ANY document since about the beginning of March. There is no ability to file a complaint for this broken down code/function within the Google system. Please fix this, as it makes this program essentially obsolete.

I have been using this application for over a year and now receiving the same error messages as other users! Has anyone found a comparable app to install instead?

The envelope mail merge is so finicky. You can't change anything or it will change the page back to it's original size and messes up your entire envelope merge and wont print properly. Horrible.

Barely works! When creating an email mail merge you have to ensure the tab/sheet name is no more than 5 characters or you'll receive the Add-on error saying "Something went wrong when executing add-on" or an error message saying "Oops! Try again" to preview the email. When using the letter mail merge, there is a chance you will receive the Add-on error so you have to wait 24 hours for it to work again and it may only work once. Google - FIX THIS!!
