Google Forms and Live Data : Another Distinction
Google products while look so simple and are always on a feature diet (compared to other traditional web as well as desktop applications), always amazes me with continuous innovation and features that I am looking for and quite useful to many. Latest such distinction comes from Google Spreadsheets.
Google recently announced a new feature: forms. By combining spreadsheets with bulk e-mail, the new function (which was revealed on the Google Docs blog) lets a spreadsheet author send out a mail with fields for recipients to fill in. As they do, the spreadsheet gets completed. It’s a real-time survey that pumps data straight into a spreadsheet. It’s also another example of the difference between desktop software and web-based applications.
