One of the most frequent errors that I get is:

Service invoked too many times for one day: email.

A free (consumer) account can only send 100 emails a day. People often don't realize this, and try to use a free Google account for business or something where they are sending lots of emails.

A GSuite account can send 1500 emails a day.

There have need 382 errors stating:

Event start time must be before event end time.

These errors are related to creating a calendar event. The times look like they are okay. These errors are happening when the DST (Daylight Saving Time) is going to be changing, so I don't know if it's related to that.

I do know of at least one report of incorrect times being calculated from a Google bug. (I'd rather the bug be from me than Google, because they might take a long time to fix it.)

I'm suspicious of strange things happening with the time around the time that DST changes. Currently I don't know what the problem is.

Add-ons in the Chrome Web Store are being phased out. Once this process is completed, the G Suite Marketplace will be the sole add-on store.

At some point on or after the January 25, 2019 deadline, add-on listings will be removed from the Chrome Web Store.

User installs will be migrated to the G Suite Marketplace. According to Google, if you installed the add-on through the Chrome Web Store (As opposed to GSuite Marketplace) the add-on will continue to work without interruption.

If you installed the add-on through the GSuite Marketplace, then it's basically no change to you at all.

I guess that Google Plus is going to be discontinued. So, this group will cease to exist, if that is true. I will not be approving any more member requests. I do not know if there will be an alternative to this group, or whether I will implement it.

For general announcements, I could use a Google Site, or a blog. For anyone who wants to receive an email, I could have something like a newsletter.

Google Plus Communities that were created from "consumer" (Free) Google accounts are scheduled to be shut down at some point. This group is from my free (consumer) account. According to what I've been seeing, this is real. I am not sure what the options are. But I will be very interested in finding out what other people plan to do about this.

I've made some changes and published the changes to the Beta version. If you want to install and check out the Beta version, the link is included. It will probably give you a warning message that it's unsafe, and you need to go to the advanced link to authorize it. It's not unsafe. It's exactly the same permissions as the public version.

I may publish a new version of Data Director, but I'd like to get some people to test the Beta version first.

There are some bugs that I know about:

1) The bullet list for grid questions in a PDF isn't putting each bullet point on a new line.

2) In the Data Split - Advanced Branching - After saving a row setting there is an error message. The settings seem to be getting saved, but see number 3.

3) In the Data Split - If you choose to make a new spreadsheet when the settings are saved, the link to the created spreadsheet is not being put into the display.

I'm trying to do some work on these issues, but there is a problem with me being able to test the add-on in "Test Mode"

Starting from August 22nd, 2018:

The legacy version of Google Forms will have restrictions put on it. Starting from August 22nd, 2018 you will no longer be able to create a new Google Form that is in the "Old" format. All Google Forms created after August 22nd, 2018 will automatically be in the new format, and it can't be changed back to an "Old" Form.

So, if you have been resisting the new Google Forms, all resistance is futile. You must assimilate.
