Up until now, the features that have been added to Google Spreadsheets have been a bit underwhelming. There’s nothing they’ve done where I stopped and said “wow, that’s amazing or unique” until today. Recently they implemented a form feature that will help users collect information in a poll like fashion.
It’s not that this feature is going to be beneficial to everybody, because it’s not, but to those who could use such a feature, they’re going to love this. It’s part of the sharing feature and it only takes a minute to create a form and invite people to fill it out. The best part of this whole feature is that the information that is collected will be compiled automatically in a Google Spreadsheet for you. All people will have access to is the form itself and not the results.
To access this feature, go to http://spreadsheets.google.com and start a new Spreadsheet.
