Many schools send out paper forms to parents to collect information or permission. This can be really inefficient as it can rely on the student to be organised enough to be the delivery person and then a member of staff to collate the data and chase any missing responses.
A great feature of cloud platforms such as G Suite and Office 365 is that anyone can easily create an online form to capture any information they want. These forms can be filled out by anyone (even on a smart phone), which makes it really easy to send directly out to parents and you don’t have to rely on students to take a piece of paper home and bring it back in!
The responses are automatically collated for easy analysis, which massively reduces staff administration time, and missing respondents can be easily chased at the click of a button!
You can create Forms really easily in both platforms right away!
