Bulk convert Google Docs to PDFs

The following Google Apps Script tool is designed to bulk convert all Google Docs within a given Google Drive folder into PDFs. You can choose the destination folder for the PDFs to be put into and also whether you want the original Docs to be deleted. This tool does work on Shared drives.

Instructions

Use the 'Welcome' sheet to complete the necessary information before proceeding. All of the Google Docs need to be in the same folder. Either use the Start button or the Admin menu to start the process.

Toast notifications will appear at the bottom right of the Google Sheet to inform you of the progress. The Log sheet can be used to diagnose any problems you encounter.

The new PDFs will use the same filename as the Google Docs. You can use the dropdown on the Welcome sheet to decide if you want to delete the original Docs - selecting 'No' or leaving it blank will not delete the Docs.
