Hi,
I tried to add images (logos) on a google docs but when I merge the images doesn't appear. I have an empty shape instead.
I tried to add images as a merge field (using <img> at the column name and using Drive link to the logo I want to use) but again it doesn't work.
Can you help me please?

Hi Charlotte,

You might have issues with images, due to a bug from Google Docs. Copy/pasting images from their API is unreliable as this stage. We have reported this right here and have introduced a feature request right here. We are actively monitoring any updates from the Google engineering team and will ping you as soon as we have more information.

I'm really sorry for that. In the meantime, you should be able to merge images that are publicly available online (e.g. use "Search images" or the "URL" tab when inserting images).

Best regards
Lucy - Customer Support

Hope the bug is fixed now ! What is the procedure/codes to include in the template in order  to insert a personnalized picture/photo on my letters made with Mail-Merge app ?  Where to store the pictures ? 

Regards. JPL

Hi,

I'm facing the same problem with both images and the footer. 
Is there any update?

Thanks for your attention.
Best regards,
Matteo
