Load form data
Trigger Ultradox on form submissions
When triggering Ultradox from a Google Form you can access the submitted data and merge it into your emails, documents etc.
When adding this building block to your flow all variables will become available in the Ultradox Template Editor as well.
Ultradox will only be triggered on form submissions if you have activated the trigger in the Ultradox Trigger add-on of the connected Google Form.
This building block allows you to configure default values for the defined form fields. You can thereby run and test your flow right from the Ultradox editor without filling out the linked Google Form. This will make testing a lot faster and easier.
Make sure to save your data so that the entered values appear as Ultradox variables in the output parameter section of the building block.
Please note that even when removing this building block from your flow, Ultradox will still get triggered from the Google Form if the trigger is active.
- Receive user input via Google Forms and use it in any other Google document
- Send customer specific emails (and attached content) based on a forms input
Click on the bold text in the title of the building block to open the configuration dialog.
Click on the reload icon to scan the template again to track down added or removed variables. If you have renamed your template on Google Drive clicking on this button will also update the document name in Ultradox.
Use the edit icon to edit the template in a new browser tab.
Click on the preview icon to generate a PDF from your template and open the generated PDF in a new browser tab. Ultradox is now generating a new Google document for the preview as this would generate new files on your Google Drive for each generated preview. The generated PDF document will contain an Ultradox watermark and will not count against your license. The preview is perfectly suited for testing your template without wasting your license during development.

Clicking on the save button will save the entered values. Make sure to always click on the save button after entering of changing the test data.

Using a Google form you can easily capture any data. Either receive an online form via email or from a homepage or have have a terminal ready for visitors of an exhibition or your logistics personnel to enter and print/store something right away.
In this short example a visitors first name, last name and company is registered using a Google Form. Based on a template you designed a Badge in PDF format is created which can easily be printed out right for the visitor to pick up.
Having a user entering a from and to location in a Google from you can use the Get directions building block to compile the route between the two points.
With the Docs to html building block you can create a html file which processes the directions template and fills them into a template to visualize the route. The html directions can then be sent to the requesting user.
