Smartsheet Google Docs Merge Add-on Enhancement Request

I didn't see this while searchign through the discussions. It would be very helpful to have a Suppress Blanks feature in the merge add-on so that if there is no data in the data field, then don't populate the merge template. As an example, let's say you are building a bulleted list in the merge document and you want that list to grow or shrink based on data coming from the smartsheet. In MS Word, if you suppress blanks during a merge, you can dynamically control that list. Currently, unless someone has a different thought, I have to delete bulleted lines if the merge field doesn't have any data coming from Smartsheet.

 

Thanks,

Bob

    We're planning an update to this integration soon. This isn't on the planned list but I'll talk to our team about this and see if we can fit it in a future update.

     

    I'd still love votes or comments here if others are interested!
