Some cool Google Form Add-Ons

I just love how Google Apps now has Add-Ons.  It makes so much possible.  Our Middle School Counselor came to me yesterday and she wanted a way to be notified that teachers filled out a Google form.  She also wanted to generate a document each time someone completed the form with the information from the fields of the form.  After a bit of trial and error with Form Add-Ons, I discovered a beautiful solution.

I decided to use the Add-On Form Notifications to let her know when someone had filled out the form.  Adding an Add-On is Super Easy.

For the Add-On Form Notifications, you just need to type in the email address you want the notifications to go to.

To create a new document from the information typed in to the form, I chose Form Publisher.  To get this to work I had to look up a tutorial on Youtube.  Once you know you need to put __##   ##__  in your template document, it works perfectly.

Here is the YouTube tutorial I watched that was super helpful.

Some other really great Form Add-Ons are Form Ranger and Form Limiter.
