    Google Forms

    Hi,

    I have a fairly simple and short Google form with questions on it. However, towards the end there is (or I want to have) a section that is for the use of someone else i.e. not the person filling in the form. Essentially the form is for people to submit a proposal idea and the end section is for their boss (boss 1) to say whether they approve the proposal or not base don the information submitted. If they do approve it I want them to be able to then complete their bit. In addition it may also need higher approval and there are two more questions for another boss (boss 2) to complete (this is all once section currently).

    So....my question is, currently I have made it so the form ends at point "A" and the user then clicks submit. However I then need boss 1 to be able to access that form again and enter their decision at point "B" in the form (i.e. after the submit point). Is this even possible and if so how? Also could boss 1 and 2 get notified when these sections are completed so they know they need to go in and do something or is this too advanced and if so what is possible?

    Thanks
    MissDB

    It's possible I'd imagine.
    But it's been couple of years since I last worked with Google Form...
    Quick Google Search turned up below.

    There may be other custom module that could be installed out there.

    If that isn't an option, you'd probably have better luck getting help, if you ask the question in Google Form specific forum.

    Re: Google Forms

    Oh, if above isn't an option. Here's what I did in the past.
    1. Create 3 separate forms.
    2. Create custom web pages (could be hosted locally in company network to limit access). With form parts embedded.
    3. Add Google Scripts to send out notification once form is submitted to each of the form's linked sheet, along with info (include unique identifier).

    So when initial user submits form, notification along with UID goes to boss 1 & 2. Boss 1 then opens up form 2 and enter UID along with his actions.
    Boss 2 then receives notification, submits form 3 along with UID.

    We are quite restricted here sadly but I will have a look into that to see if it is possible. Many thanks again!

    Re: Google Forms

    MissDB, for future reference, please take a moment to read the forum rules and use thread titles that are descriptive of your problem - not what you think the answer might be. (think google search terms?).

    Many members search our previous posts, and thread titles play a big part of the search. I doubt anybody would do a search based on your title?
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you

    Re: Google Forms

    I apologise if my thread title did not comply with forum ruled. I was struggling to verbalise a shortened form of my question. I was also at work and had time pressures. I Will ensure future posts are as descriptive as possible.

    Re: Google Forms

    I meant sadly in the sense that I had done a lot of work and wanted to be able to post a solution on here as is expected by the forum "rules"/etiquette but I was unable to see this method through to complete. I am over the moon about using Excel, just wish I had been able to use it form the start!
