Google forms linked to Sheets with Document Studio add-on
To get formal quote for a service, in the video, my panorama service is being demonstrated, people interested in the service can fill out an online Google Form. They get an email response with a PDF attachment with a formal quote for the service.
The form populates a linked google sheet. The google Sheet has an Add-on “Document Studio (although AutoCrat could be used also) that takes the information in the sheet, using a sheet template , it populates the template and merges the data from the linked form sheet to create a Quote which it saves in a new folder it creates specific to that query.
It also sends an email (Gmail) to the email address with the quote attached.
It also sends me an email (Gmail) of the quote as well, so that i know there has been an enquiry for the service.
This process is completely automated after the form is filled out and sent.
Google forms do not do calculated fields on the form. So you could possibly embed a spreadsheet into a post to do some calculations or use “Calculated Fields Form” WordPress plugin to give interested people a way to get an estimate for the service. See this post Calculated Fields Form & Sidebar Image links.
The free version does not let you save the estimates but you can always do a screenshot to capture the information.
The cam studio played up again and I had to reboot the computer to get it to work for the 2nd vid. I had previously downloaded Flashback Express recorder but it saves its files as .fbr extension. On trying to save a copy (export I think) to .avi it took ages, so I stopped it and went back to CamStudio. I will have to keep looking for a simple, reliable free video creation tool.
I think the video is a good way to link the ideas of the processes and show their effectiveness far better than writing posts. I think they are worth doing in specific cases.
The 2nd video shows me I’m only part way through that process and need to see about the next parts of the process.
