Maybe it's been improved since these other reviews, but it worked great for me. I love that I can save a version of the doc with the placeholders completed straight from the add-on. I haven't used it directly from Sheets yet.

Great software. Although, I am able to use it as an admin but my team is unable to use it. It just says "permission denied" for all of them even though I enabled it for everyone in the admin console. I wish I could resolve this issue!!!

First time using it, every time I try to change a field (such as make it required or change the format to "date" etc.) it removes all field options and gives me a blank screen with only "404" in upper corner. Useless.
