*** What is Publigo? ***
Publigo is a 100% free document merge tool for Google Sheets that lets you:
Generate documents in bulk via a template filled with data from your spreadsheet: use a template with merge tags to create  document for each row in your sheet
Turn Google Form submissions into PDFs, Google files or Microsoft files: for every form submission, the data are collected and used to create a document
Schedule your merge documents at a specific date and time: specify a date for each row and your documents will be automatically generated

Easily generate documents with those simple steps:
1. Create a template document either from Google Docs, Sheets or Slides and add merge fields like {{First Name}}, {{Date}} etc.
2. List those same fields (First Name, Date ...) as columns headers in a Google spreadsheet and fill it with the relevant data.
3. Open Publigo from the "quick access" right side panel of your Google Sheets, and select your template. Optionally, you can also choose your target folder where your new files will be stored.
4. Launch Publigo, and that’s it! The add-on will automatically generate all your files as PDFs, Google files (Sheets, Slides, Docs) or as Microsoft files (Excel, PowerPoint, Word).

Publigo also comes with a powerful feature that lets you automate file generation from Google Forms submissions. Each time a respondent submits a Google Form, Publigo will convert the form responses into various types of documents (PDFs, Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, or Microsoft PowerPoint) from a template that you have previously selected from Google Drive. This allows you to present your Google Forms’ data in a more impactful and suitable format, making your data meaningful.

With Publigo, schedule your merge documents by specifying the date in your sheet. Then, Publigo will generate the document for each row when the date specified in the sheet will be reached!

Optionally, you can also send those generated files by email as attachments to a list of recipients, to the form respondent, and/or share the documents in Google format (Docs, Sheets or Slides) with editing, commenting or viewing access.

*** Publigo’s key features ***

After about 2 hours of trying to get it to work properly it just stopped working altogether and kept throwing up error messages. I was about to give it up as a bad job, and uninstalled it. Reinstalled the following day and tried again. It has taken me some time to get it to do what I wanted it to, but it is now producing documents using my templates (I was using a prior add-on for doc merge that was discontinued), giving them file names that make sense, and emailing them out/putting the resulting docs in the correct folders. Could be a little more intuitive to use, if there are more comprehensive instructions on how to use it, I haven't found them! (Only the basic introductory instructions that help centre emailed me which I had already tried.) Not sure why it just stopped working first time around, but have made new sheets and copied info across from my old sheets and that seems to have sorted the error messages. All in all, now that it's doing what I want it to, it's a useful product, just a little frustrating to set up, hence 4 stars.

It only works for test file (one file creation), When you trigger for actual running the complete document, it didn't work and every time it shows an error "something went wrong when executing the Add-on". Frustrating!!!
