Google Goodies

I just stumbled across the latest tweaks to Google Spreadsheets.

Two of the improvements include: adding support for including images on your spreadsheet and supporting dynamic forms.

The images are handy, and fairly expected. The forms idea is clever. Essentially, you can write up your own survey, and send it out. Folks respond on a basic website, all the while filling in your spreadsheet without ever logging in or facing a spreadsheet UI.

It's a feature I didn't know I wanted. But I'm sure I can find a use for it it. After all, Google Spreadsheets is among my favorite Swiss Army Knife style on-line tools.

  1. do me a favor and keep me (us) posted if you make any survey forms with this. I'd be interested to know how it goes. I'm not a fan of making surveys purely because then you have to 'analyses' the results, which always involves converting the data into a spreadsheet friendly form factor... so yes, please keep me posted.
