I do not believe your Googles Templates and Zapier “Google Templates” are referring to the same things. Zapier is referring to more or less plain Google Docs that have fillable merge fields. 

Try creating a regular google document with valid merge fields: here is an example you can copy


Hi, thank you for your reply. 

I have created a document as a template in google with the same exact text you have showed me, but it still doesnt work. 

The zap i am trying to use is “Create google Docs from template”, but when I try tu select the template I will use, none of the templates we have are reflected. 

Can you help me?

Hi @Ramiro 

Try putting the static ID of the GDoc from the browser URL into the Template Document field using the ‘Custom’ option:

Thanks a lot for your help.
