    This seems a slightly cumbersome way of doing it. What prevents you creating 2 different outputs from a single form submission? My concern with the duplicated forms setup you describe is that with intensive use it has the potential to cause problems.

    Hi there,

    We are a vacation rental management company and we'd like to be able to receive the guest responses to a form sent to them in two different templates.

    The first would be for the guest to sign upon arrival so it ideally would be in PDF.

    The second would be for administration records and would ideally be in Excel so we can copy and paste the guest data into a unique spreadsheet.

    Is there any way this is possible?

    I've been playing with this platform for hours and cannot seem to work out how a response to a form can be received in two different file types (e.g. one in excel for admin purposes and the second in PDF for printing and guest signing purposes).

    Maybe I'm missing something?

    Cheers,

    Steve

    Hi Steve,

    Thanks for your comment!

    Did you check that your additional template was set up as a Google Sheet file as per your request? If so, once the user will fill out the form and the connected template will be triggered then the user will receive the specific file according to your set up. However, without a connected template, it is not possible for the user to receive different kinds of files for one single submission.

    Hope that helps

    Hi,

    I have tried to configure the multiple templates but it doesn't seem to work.
    I have two PDFs that I want to be generated from 2 distinct slides templates.

    Let's say I have a certificate of participation to a course and I also want to send to the participants a discount coupon.

    I have setup the main form with the coupon and then added the connected form for the certificate, but when I try to fill the main form, it sends two identical email with the voucher attached and it doesn't send the certificate...

    if I check the excel file with replies, it fills both the one for the main and for the connected forms...

    Is there a way to customize the Google Doc document name using one or more of the form fields?  The name of the form and the increment is not useful.  I want something more descriptive.

    Hello Anthony,

    Yes of course it is possible to add your own custom marker to the title of the document. Please make sure that it is the exact same title as the question in your form and it should be working.

    Thanks
