Do you use google docs?

By
Real Estate Agent with Coastal Properties Group International - Christie's International

Brad Andersohn posted about how to use the forms feature in google docs and how to insert it into your blog posts. I thought that would be a good opportunity to

test whether his instructions worked

and

see who uses google docs

so here is a form I did in google docs in just a few minutes:

 

9/19/08 - just to update you, it's pretty neat to check the responses on the spreadsheet. 71% of the respondents use google docs, 19% do not.

Hi, Neal, Happy Sunday! Do you currently upload your .pdf of floor plans and other documents to your website and then link to them from your blogs?

Sharon - somehow AR was giving me fits when commentings so sorry one of mine may not make sense. This looks awesome and can't wait to give it a shot myself!

Sharon-

I tried making a sample form on Google earlier today. It came out lousy. I guess I'll need to concentrate a bit more. You did a great job.

Actually, I reblogged Brads Google Form post!

Cyndee - you'll have fun playing with it.

Matt - it took me a little trial and error. You'll get the hang of it.

Shirley - let me know how you make out.

Just FYI - you can also edit the response form that pops up once form is submitted, you can have it say anything you like.  Great job with setting this up Sharon.  :-)

Hi Sharon, A long time user of Google Docs, I still had no idea this could be done. I sure like the idea and there are several ways it might be useful to incorporate in the posts. And at least you allowed comments, Brad didn't, on his first post. I will check now.

Sharon, I am learning so many great things here and this is one more to add to my list. I have been pretty busy actually selling real estate so have not been able to devote as much time to learning as I would like. Thank you for posting this in a helpful and easy to follow format!

Brad - thanks for your help. I'll have to look into editing the response form.

William - I love using Google Docs, too, and this was new for me.

Russell - Star Brad's instructions as a Favorite - maybe some day you'll get to look back at your Favorites.

Sharon,

I took your advice. I have been here in Austin and don't have as much time to work on Active Rain as I would like (I am NOT complaining). My learning curve has been steep but I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I am hoping to incorporate all of thee great ideas into our website at AvenueOne  and also make a serious attempt at putting out 2-3 good blog posts every week! Thanks for your continued help and support!

Sharon, I am fairly new to AR, but have checked out Google Docs.  I guess that I still haven't discovered all there is to it, but when I have more time I will learn how to use it better.  The best part about it is it is free.

Troy - I really appreciate google providing so many things free. As for advertising - I'd much rather have relevant advertising than not.

See update above.
