    @Roberto-Mardini You can add your comp to the render queue normally via AE’s menus, and it will render just the currently-previewing individual job data. The render-status column is only used by Templater Bot. If you still want to output a range of rows, you’d still need to adjust the start and end values in the Transport controls section.

    @Steve I’m not clear on the question you are asking. Could you explain more in depth what is and isn’t happening, and what you are trying to make happen?

    In case anyone comes across this topic later, it appears that jotform changed something about the way that they serve media files, and they no longer appear to be offering directly hosted files that work with Templater. There is a paid plugin called Uploadcare that I believe still works for file uploads that Templater can import.

    @simon_t apologies for the long delay. We haven’t been receiving notices for new posts, but I believe we corrected that issue. It looks like the video at the loom link isn’t active anymore. If you set a scale factor on the text layer, and make sure that it is within it’s own precomp that is the size of the text box you want, it should fit the text to the dimensions of the precomp.

    @vjn86 (and for anyone else reading this later)

    Yes, you can do this, but you will need to use expressions to accomplish it. You can set numerical values in your data, then map that data to a dynamic text layer in your project. Then, you can use a parseInt() expression to parse the value of the sourceText of the layer into a number that can be used in any numerical value such as position, scale, rotation, etc. See referencing dynamic text layers section.

    @Tasnadi-Otto Just to clarify, are you talking about pixel dimensions (length and width) or time/duration? If you’re talking about time, you can do what Arie suggested, or, as a workaround, you could set up your text layer(s) and have it mapped in multiple comps, each comp having a different duration, then use comp switching feature to swap between different precomps using the method shown in this demonstration.

    @dwalters There are videos demonstrating setting a target as well as switching between project files. For data in expressions, see the link in my previous post under the section “referencing dynamic text layers.”

    @dwalters You can select individual comps within a project to re-version with the target property, or you can switch between projects with the aep property (and you can combine the two). Templater will parse through the entire project, not just the target comp, so you can set up really complex, modular systems that all update at once. You can use data from your data source to drive you controller/checkbox layouts.

    @dwalters You can use spreadsheet formulas to access data in other worksheets within a “master” worksheet. Just be aware that if you are using the Bot to process your jobs, a quirk of the Google Sheets API makes it so that Templater must “flatten” the formulas in any row that it processes. If you are using the Render/Replicate to process jobs, you don’t need to worry about that particular issue.

    @eliasnilsson19 How are you locally accessing the files uploaded to the Google Form? Are they being synced back to your computer via Google Drive (File Stream or Backup and Sync)? You would need to build a formula in your Sheet that transposes and concatenates a local file path based on the original file name of the file being uploaded-- the generated URLs for Google Drive are not absolute links, so Templater will fail to download them correctly (Templater can download URLs that are absolute links to the files, ending with a file extension). I’m not certain whether it is possible to get just the filename of the uploaded file via Google Forms, but if it is, that is how you would have to approach it. Outside of that, you’d have to look at a different form builder that can handle the requirement of uploading the file and pushing the absolute URL back into your Sheet. I know that it is possible to do with JotForm, if configured correctly.
