How to Use Google Docs Forms?
I'd like to show you How to use Google Docs Forms as an alternative on your website.
I love Google Docs Forms - I use them everywhere - as forms, questionnaires, quizzes, gathering data of all sorts.
- When the form is filled in, you will receive an email notification and when you click the link inside that email, you'll be taken to the spreadsheet which forms the backbone of the Form. (Tip - you need to specify which email name to send the Form Results to).
- You will need to have a Gmail account - you can use your business name as the 'email name' @gmail.com, and you can separate words with a dot, fullstop or period - for example: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Once you have the Gmail account, you can go into the settings and specify that all incoming emails be forwarded to any other email name of your choice.
Here are a couple of great videos showing you HOW to set up your Form:
