FormRanger: Setting Limits to responses in a Google Form

Hey everyone!

Sorry for being away for so long. I’m doing my best to maintain this page with new and exciting things in G Suite for Education.

There’s a ton of new stuff, and some new tricks that I hope to show you as well.

Which brings me to this post.

I have been administering PA Day registrations for my school board for a while now using Google Forms. It was until recently that I came across a great video that helps manage the number of times Google Form respondents can select from a provided list of options – in my case, sessions.

I modified one important thing that JZ Prezzavento did; rather than update the options list with a ‘FULL’, I modified the formula so that the session is removed completely from the list! That way, people wouldn’t be able to choose an option with the title FULL, which respondents can technically do.

Google Classroom now available for all!

Google Classroom is now available to users without G Suite for Education accounts. Teachers and students in many different environments can now teach or attend classes, manage assignments and instantly collaborate—all with their personal Google accounts.

G Suite for Education administrators will see updated Classroom settings that give them new controls over who can join their classes from personal Google accounts or from other G Suite for Education domains. This update gives schools more flexibility in how they collaborate with other organizations and students: For example, student teachers or visiting students can now easily integrate into their host school or university’s Classroom set-up.
