    I am using the Today marker in my template (a Google Doc). The generated doc shows the date in mm/dd/yy format. Is there a way I can change this to the more UK standard dd/mm/yyy format?

    Any way to create a marker with the form's respondent's email account?

    Hello Patricia Laing,

    To learn more about date format, please read this article: Configure your date and time format.

    Hello Arlene LeBoeuf,

    We just update this article to include the <<Username>> marker.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Dear FromsPublisher Staff, thank for this complement.

    There is any way can you update this complement to include a marker with the "test score"?

    Thank for you colaboration. 

    Looking forward to hear from you.

    Hi,

    @Nicolas: This is not currently possible as the score is only inserted in the response spreadsheet ... We will try to find a workaround this issue as several users ask for that feature.

    AMAZING product!

    Just one feature request!  Is it possible to have a <<UsernameOnly>> tag where you strip the domain information from the email?  So for example if the person submitting the form is john.doe@email.com the <<UsernameOnly>> marker would return "john.doe" and strip out the @email.com.  This could be useful!

    Either way, absolutely fantastic product!

    Hi,

    @Patrik Svensson: Thanks for your feedback, that's a good idea, we will implement two new markers, one for the username only and one for the domain only. We will update this article as soon as it's released.

    Hello!

     

    @Form Publisher Team:  That's awesome.  An EVEN MORE awesome Market would be something like <<UsernameProper>> where the "john.doe@email.com" e-mail could output to "John Doe".  So the "<<UsernameProper>>" marker would not only strip the domain, it would remove any dots and capitalize first letter of each word.  Not sure if this can be done but considering many businesses keep the to firstname.lastname@email.com format this would be an awesome feature!  Then we can easily extract the name of who submitted the form!

    Either way, appreciate the product as is!

    Hi,

    @Patrik Svensson: This could be a good idea for professional emails addresses. We will update this article if we decide to develop this new marker.

    Hi,

    I'm trying to use the <<Email Address>> marker, I tried both with and without the * (in sheer desperation it might do something)

    but I always get the error below. Any suggestions how to deal with this?

    Hi, 

    @Avery Miller: Thanks for pointing that out. We did forgot to add those marker in the marker detection. But this should work just fine without the *. We will fix this as soon as possible.

    Is it a case sensitive issue?  Since Google uses "Email address" as the title rather than "Email Address" for the collect email address field.

    HI,

    @SenseorsONE: It is case sensitive, but Google do use "Email Address". I wasn't clear in my first comment, we forgot to add it to the marker detection, so in the sidebar it will say that it's not a match, but in the file generation the marker will be replaced by the email of the respondent and everything will work just fine.

    Hi,

    Are you able to put the Increment Number as a marker?  I would like the increment number on the google doc because I can use it as an invoice number.  So the doc will be labeled "12345" and I can have that in the body of the document by using a marker.  If this is possible, what would be the marker format?

    Hi Josephc Talento,

    I'm not sure that i understand your question, the <<Increment>> marker does exist and return the current increment number.

    Hi,

    For the generated files I have them labeled as <<Increment>>.  So each time it publishes a form they are called 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.  I wanted to see if I could have a marker in my Template for the <<Increment>>, so that way it shows up in the document.

    Hi Josephc Talento,

    You can use the same marker in your template document.

    Any way to get the real user name-not email address? echobunny@whatever really won't help to identify someone.

    Thanks
