article imageGoogle Adds Feedback Forms Feature in Spreadsheets

By Chris V. Thangham     Feb 7, 2008 in Internet
Google has added a new feature that lets users create forms to collect data. Users can create polls, surveys and collect feedback to send to others and collect data in the form of a spreadsheet.
Businesses and website owners will find Google's new “forms” feature very useful to gather feedback and results in the form of a spreadsheet for further analysis. Now Google Docs users can create forms in minutes.
You can create a form either using your current spreadsheet application or create a form from scratch from this URL. If you use the spreadsheet option to create a form yourself, then you can share it by clicking “Share” --> invite people --> “to fill out a form”.
The form lets you create all types of options and you can create forms very quickly and also edit them easily.
Google reports this new feature allows you to collect data not only from Google account holders but also from non-Google users.
Google also added a forms gadget for its iGoogle, where you can track forms you have already created or create new ones.
Here is a sample form from Google Operating System -- try it out and see the results here (please note your form data may not show right away).
You can use this forms feature to invite people and see who will be able to attend an event, create new sign-ups, get feedback about products, and plenty of other things.
