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!!!

There is similar issue that is flagged in general Goolge add on where there is multiple user login to the same browser (where some login do not have the access to the document), it would fail with this error. Workaround : 1. Log out all user account in the chrome and login "company" google account first and try the add on 2. Try on incognito tab and login google account and try use the add on 3. Try login into Firefox and try use the add on ps: If the workaround works please consider update the rating ps2: If this add on do help you a lots, please consider subscribe to support us. Thanks ;)

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.

Thanks for the feedback. Date : Our initial assumption is that user might be confused by the complicated custom date format. That why we provide selection of date format. Anyway, in the latest release version we added DateAdvance datatype option which user can custom their own date format. Number: We miss on the single digit check. We had it fixed in the latest release version Save : Seem like the pack UI is confusing user. We added some space between to distinguish the folder selection and the filename We support folder selection, and filename input We do not support for new folder (name) creation Permission Denied : We could not recreate this issue. However, this issued is flagged in general Goolge add on where there is multiple user login to the same browser (where some login do not have the access to the document), it would fail with this error. Workaround1 : Could you try logout all user and login only one user and try use this add on (or login in incognito tab and try) Workaround2 : Could you try with Firefox browser. Some user reports that it is working with firefox

Thanks. I reinstalled and the 404 error is gone. Appreciate the quick response! I really want to use this, but it does seem like there are many hidden bugs. For example, found all these in just 15 minutes: the DATE and NUMBER fields, SAVE as a copy, and the worst one - PERMISSION DENIED when used with template. See below for details. DATE: The date option is a deal breaker for me, which means I can't use this. I need to be able to choose these two options: "mmmm" (shows only the name of the month, which should be chosen from a date picker for best UI), and "mmmm dd, yyyy" (which is close to one you already have but yours is missing the comma). Neither of these are available, and you can't make your own pattern like I was able to with a different app). NUMBER: I selected one of the fields to be a number (such as "3"). I typed in 3. It wouldn't accept this number as a number until I added ".0" so it reads "3.0" which also doesn't work in my document because I need it to show a round number such as 3 or 4 or 20, etc. SAVE: the text is confusing because it says to create a "folder" name, but it's not really a folder, it's a document name. (Plus, some of your text to support is cut off on the bottom so I can't read it all). PERMISSION DENIED, TEMPLATE: ultimately, THIS DIDN't WORK at all because I needed to create a template for others to use. When I tried to create a documnt from the template, then run this app, it gave me this error: "We're sorry, a server error occurred while reading from storage. Error code PERMISSION_DENIED". This would have been the perfect solution for my needs if it worked properly: creating a document with variables while still allowing the rest of the document to be editable. :(
