  1. Hey Steve, I was just about to buy a forms service, then thought I’d do a little Google search to find the best online forms builder. Google Forms popped up, but I didn’t quite get how they worked. My final step was to do a search for Google forms help in YouTube, and whala…there you are. I’ve watched several of your training videos (huge fan of Evernote) and you are absolutely the best. Thanks for your great work!!

  2. So what is actually the (mocked-up) purpose of this form: to borrow something? What does AV Log Out stand for. Just curious about what you thought about when making it.

  3. I love Google Drive for using to update my resume! Thanks for showing more features like this that I didn’t know about! And storming the castle was fun!

  4. Thinking about trying htis as a consent form for my Salon business. Any thoughts on if it’d be good? I’d have an ipad for people to sign up on?

  5. Thanks for the video. Its helpful. Can we send form responses to any mail id as a mail. (Everytime we have to go MyDrive > Check spreadsheets instead).

  6. Google Forms – an awesome tool to gather feedback and collect information on almost any subject such as tracking your project issue list, class survey, event participation etc. You can view your results in Google Sheets or even Microsoft Excel. It is easy to use and free! Another great tip SME should leverage. Watch the video below by Steve Dotto to gain more insight on this Google Drive’s Hidden Gem. Need further help?

  7. Hello Steve, Have you figured out a way to use mail merge to generate a formatted report from a spreadsheet? i.e. put all the merged output into a single document? Thanks Derm

  8. I have another question: how can I make sure that I do not get more one response per person? Sort of identification code which I see in several web pages.

  9. Very helpful! You just saved me from the hassle and stress of building a website. Google Forms includes all of the functionality I need at the moment! Thanks Steve :)

  10. Years back I setup Google Apps for my Dad’s company. I use google sites also since the information is static. Google Forms sounds interesting, but, it does not offer a captcha feature to validate if you are human. I need that to prevent spam. Right now I am using a form I created in Zoho Creator to embed in Google Sites. It allows for verification and we receive and e-mail. I am using it for the Contact Page. If Google Forms would let me use some kind of Captcha widget, I could replace what I have in Zoho Creator. If you know a way, please let me know. Thanks for the video!
