If you have added a file upload question in your Google Form which allows image format, Form Publisher will be able to insert those files as images in your generated document. This tutorial will show you how.
What you'll learn
The following tutorial will show you how to automatically generate with Form Publisher a document that contains the image uploaded from your Google Form. We'll use a Google Sheets template:
Time to complete
Running a simple example
1. Create a Google Form which includes a File Upload item
Add in your form all the basic information that you want to collect from the submitter (name, function, department, email address etc...).
Include a File Upload item to let your colleagues upload the photo for their badge. You can indicate the maximum number of files (up to 1, 5 or 10), the maximum file size (from 1 MB to 10 GB) and select which file types are allowed:
2. Create your template in Google Docs, Sheets or Slides
Design it in the way you want (or get inspired by the pre-designed templates from Google Docs, Sheets or Slides) and add the markers in your template. They have to match exactly your question titles, as Form Publisher is case & space sensitive.
Our template (from Google Spreadsheet) looks like the following:
Notice the marker <<ID Photo>> in the top of the document which refers to the question title for the File Upload item from your Google Form.
3. Configure Form Publisher
Select your template in Form Publisher, and in the template sidebar where all markers are detected, tick 'Insert as image' from your file upload marker.
4. Share your Google Forms
Once your form is ready, share it to your colleagues, and ask them to fill it. They can either upload their photo from Drive or from their computer.
6. Collect the employee profiles
Once your colleagues submitted their form, Form Publisher will automatically generate their profile with their answers, as well as the PDF (if you enabled this option):
Note: All the uploaded files will automatically appear on a new folder in your Drive so that you can retrieve them easily.
On your responses spreadsheet, a link to the file will be added as the answer to the File Upload item. As usual, you will also get the generated files URL (Docs + PDF) from Form Publisher.
