AppendDocument not working

I am evaluating the product and using some simple code to append multiple templates to one output file. However only the first page is saved. If i create an empty document and then use AppendDocument, nothing is saved except a blank page. What is the correct way to use AppendDocument when i have multiple templates i need to save to a single output file?

 public static void StampTemplates(string inputJson, List<string> templateLocation, string mergedLocation)
    {
        List<Document> documents = new List<Document>();
        ReportingEngine engine = new ReportingEngine {Options = ReportBuildOptions.AllowMissingMembers | ReportBuildOptions.RemoveEmptyParagraphs};
        foreach (var template in templateLocation)
        {
            Document doc = new Document(new MemoryStream(File.ReadAllBytes(template)));
            JsonDataLoadOptions options = new JsonDataLoadOptions
            {
                AlwaysGenerateRootObject = true,
                SimpleValueParseMode = JsonSimpleValueParseMode.Strict
            };
            var ds = new JsonDataSource(new MemoryStream(Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(inputJson)), options);
            engine.BuildReport(doc, ds, "policy");
            documents.Add(doc);
            if(templateLocation.IndexOf(template) != 0)
                    documents[0].AppendDocument(doc,ImportFormatMode.KeepSourceFormatting);
        }
        documents[0].Save(mergedLocation);
    }
