When using google docs you can create forms to allow parents/students or colleagues to send you information.  One thing you want to make sure you do is

  • Go to docs.google.com
  • Make your form
  • Open your spreadsheet that is created when you make a form.
  • Go to tools
  • Choose notification rules
  • Select for it to email you when a user submits a form.  You decide if you want daily digest or per user!
