I have been using Google Docs in a variety of ways since its release. About a month or so ago, they released a whole slew of new features, one of which was Google Forms. I finally had the chance to sit down and run through the setup. It is rather simple and pretty functional for basic users needing to collect form data on the web.
Here is a brief overview:
This is how the embedded form looks like Not really sure why they are actually allowing forms to be embedded in e-mail, but hey, they are Google right!
I think for people that are looking for a great way to capture information on the web with basic, rudimentary form tools, this is the ticket. However, because of the lack of style formatting and any sort of validation, those of us that require more enhanced forms will continue to build our own.
