Form+, a great assistant to forms from Chrome

Just today, SkyDrive has launched a new feature with which we can generate forms for surveys or studies , and store the results in Excel file that is stored in this storage service in the cloud. Microsoft’s proposal is in line with what we can do, for some time, with Google Docs and, indeed, with the option of Google have the ability to insert the form on our website and through the API of use some other application that we make things even easier. Every day there are more applications for Google Chrome and that are related to Google Drive, ie the Google storage systems and, among them, Form+ can help you a lot when drawing a form.

Saying that Google Docs can generate and store the collected data in a spreadsheet that is stored in Google Drive is not really anything new and is something that, more or less, everyone knows or has used in some another occasion. However, generating complex forms a comfortable and, for example, adding the ability to upload attachments, use “radio buttons”, add fields with a number of options and an interface that works by dragging and dropping the resources that compose form is quite significant.

Indeed, these are some of the functions that includes Form +, an application for Google Chrome that will allow us to make forms based on already defined resources that can add comfort and to base our forms in some of the existing templates. Start from a blank sheet (or a specific template) and dragging and dropping components and we will add functionality to the form fields where we can add even file uploads (which will be stored in our space in Google Drive).

Once we published our form, as usual the data is stored in a spreadsheet that will be accessed from Google Drive and, logically, we can open to review data from our survey and the study to draw conclusions or to consider more timely. In addition, each time a user fill out the questionnaire proposed Form + send us a mail notifying runs we review new data. Another interesting detail is that since the application can access a summary of the forms generated where we can see the responses received (people who filled out) and, at a glance, keep in mind the historical forms and surveys have published.
