    I was wondering why Form Publisher wants or needs access to the following in their updated permissions:

    • Read, send, delete, and manage your email
    • View and manage the files in your Google Drive
    • View your Google Drive apps
    • View and manage your spreadsheets in Google Drive
    • View your Google Spreadsheets
    • View and manage your documents in Google Drive
    • View and manage your Google Slides presentations
    • Display and run third-party web content in prompts and sidebars inside Google applications
    • Allow this application to run when you are not present
    • Send email as you
    • Connect to an external service
    • Publish this application as a web app or a service that may share your data
    • View and manage your forms in Google Drive

    Hi,

    For the permissions :

    Read, send, delete, and manage your email
    Form Publisher need the email permission for two reasons :
    - It counts your email quota
    - It send emails for the option "Sharing Options & Notifications"

    So we only use the read to "count" and the "send" to share your files.


    View and manage the files in your Google Drive
    Form Publisher create a new folder in your Google Drive.
    Then Form Publisher create new "Google Sheets" / "Google Docs" / "Google Slides" and PDF in your Google 
    Drive and update the location in your Google Drive.


    View your Google Drive apps
    View and manage your spreadsheets in Google Drive
    View your Google Spreadsheets
    You can choose a template Google Spreadsheets and we need manipulate the data in your drive. https://support.form-publisher.com/hc/en-us/articles/115004294005-Select-your-template
    We need to access at your spreadsheet response to write the URL : https://support.form-publisher.com/hc/en-us/articles/212659209-Save-generated-files-URL-in-a-spreadsheet


    View and manage your documents in Google Drive
    View and manage your Google Slides presentations
    Exactly as for the spreadsheet, you can choose Google Docs or Google Slides like template.


    Display and run third-party web content in prompts and sidebars inside Google applications
    This right is the interface to configure Form Publisher, we need this to let you configure Form Publisher.


    Allow this application to run when you are not present
    We run the Google Triggers when you have a new response, so that Form Publisher is automatic.


    Send email as you
    When we have a problem, Form Publisher send an email to notify you in your name.


    Connect to an external service
    Publish this application as a web app or a service that may share your data

    We need external service for more reason.
    We stock the number of files you have generated.
    To keep count of our users quota
    We use Google analytics to calculate statistic.


    View and manage your forms in Google Drive
    When the user run Form Publisher with an empty Google Form, Form Publisher has an option "Try Demo". In that option, we create new response to show an example, and we need this authorization to do it.
