I set up an entire professional development system for my school district using Autocrat & gForms. I have 10 different forms and 24 merge jobs set up on each sheet which merges a certificate of completion and emails to specific site PD coordinators. I am incredibly discouraged and disheartened by the fact Autocrat is no longer reliable. At this point, I cannot even get Autocrat to OPEN on ANY of the sheets to even make adjustments or investigate why certain jobs are running and some are not. I have attempted solutions that I researched where users reported a small degree of success (unchecking use Autocrat in this document, then reloading, etc) all to no avail.

I have been following the posts in this community for months, hoping for a solution to all the glitches...

Is Autocrat just gone forever? I need either a solution or another program that works similarly to my beloved autocrat. I'd love advice from developers or fellow (passionate) Autocrat users.


Thank you!

--One incredibly frustrated Autocrat user

Sebastian, an 8th grade STLP student at East Hardin Middle School, will lead a group of elementary school students at Lakewood Elementary School, in an interactive session on Scratch.  Scratch is a basic introduction to block programming that was designed by MIT to introduce young students to computer science.  Sebastian has enjoyed learning the program and has designed an interactive, multi-level, multi-player game on Scratch.

Messing around with the .STL generator (jthatch.com) this afternoon that allows users to 3D print terrain directly from +Google Maps.  Should be done by the morning!

I know that many of you are starting to discover the different "Add-ons" for GAFE (Doctopus, Autocrat, SiteMaestro, etc) that really help educators automate some of the mundane parts of their job easily.

What you probably don't know is that the majority of these come from the genius of +Andrew Stillman and the team at New Visions for Public Schools and their CloudLab.  

Check them out! http://cloudlab.newvisions.org/

Dear Google, I'd like to make a request. I would love to be able to embed a google form directly onto my classroom page rather than adding a link. :)
Sincerely, Die Hard GAFE user.
