"Form Director is a life saver! It truly saves so much time that would otherwise be spent doing such tedious work. I use Form Director to generate pre-populated forms using google form registration responses. I have 300+ responses that need to be automated every 2 weeks, so I can spend that time working with facilitating to bring better services to our participants! "

Note: Please provide your gmail or Google workspace email id from which you will be accessing this add-on. On payment, your email will be automatically provisioned with the selected plan.
There are several plans available to choose from based on the usage. A monthly usage quota is assigned to the user based on the plan.
The usage is measured in terms of transactions
What is a transaction?
Users can configure one or more services in Form Director.
A transaction is measured as one successful execution of a service configured in Form Director. It encompasses activities done within a service including notifications. The total number of transactions is calculated by
the "number of form responses" multiplied by the "number of services" plus
the number of approvals or rejections done (in case approval feature is used)
Fors example, consider the below scenario
You have configured Form Director on 2 forms.
The first form has 1 service and the second form has 3 services.
The second form has approval feature configured for 1 of the 3 services
There are 10 responses submitted in the first form and 5 responses submitted in the second form.
Assume that approval/ rejection done for all responses submitted in the second form
Then the number of transactions is calculated as 10 X 1 + (5 X 3 + 5 X 1) = 30 (assuming all the services are executed successfully)
Form Director calculates the usage based on the number of transactions made for applying quota restrictions.
*All quota are subject to limitations of underlying Gmail/ Google workspace account
Note: Transactions are calculated by summing up the number of usage of all apps in a month.
