This morning I received a question from a viewer of my YouTube channel. The question was about the Google Forms add-on called FormRecycler. The viewer was attempting to use the add-on but was repeatedly getting the following error message, “Error: ReferenceError: “FirebaseApp” is not defined.” So I logged into my Google Forms to see if I could repeat the error, sure enough I got the same error. I reached out the developer of FormRecycler, John McGowan, and he replied with the following message:
I just published an update and it was missing a library…I fixed it and pushed out the update but I am waiting on Google to let it go live (they vet every update to ensure their is no malicious code). I hope the fix is live soon! I will respond back when it is 🙂
You should see that it runs about 3-4 times faster with the update and I am adding a lot of new features in the coming weeks.
I’m happy to report that as of this writing (11:52am ET) FormRecycler is once again working as intended without any errors.
