Practical Ed Tech Tip of the Week – Google Form Notifications

Creating and publishing a Google Form is a great way to collect information from students and their parents. A couple of popular ways to use forms is as quizzes for students and as sign-up sheets for parent-volunteers for school events. If the form that you create is going to be online for a while, consider using Form Notifications to receive email updates about form submissions. Google Sheets, where Google Form responses are collected, has a built-in tool for notifications. To be notified, open the “tools” menu while viewing the spreadsheet on which your form responses are collected. In the “tools” menu select “notification rules.” In the “notification rules” settings you can choose to be sent an email when someone submits new information through your Google Form.  Screenshots of the process are included below.
