    I need to collect data and merge it to a word doc/pdf

    Asked by Joe  on December 20, 2016 at 03:12 PM

    The process I need I have working in google, but I need to be able to also upload a file as part of the form.

    Hey Joe, you won't need any libraries - Just drag/add an Upload Field to your form and that's basically it.

    However, I didn't understand what you meant by "I need to collect data and merge it to a word doc/pdf"

    If you need to get your Submission Data, they are readily available inside your account.

    Now, if you want to export the data, you can, via different formats (but no options for a doc file):
