Let the Mule do the work
The formMule Add-On for Google Sheets has become one of my favorite add-ons. “formMule sends targeted, personalized emails from a Google Sheet. Run as either a manual email merge or — more powerfully — as a triggered merge that runs automatically on form submit.”
This year UCET will be using formMule to help us with the conference credit we award after the conference. Based on your request you will receive an email specific to SUU Credit, USOE Credit or Licensure points.
Check out the video to see how formMule works.
Here are some of the suggested uses of formMule.
- “Build your own self-correcting Google Forms assessments that auto-send results and/or learning resources upon form submit.
- Set up a website contact form that uses branching logic to reach the correct person's inbox depending upon the nature of the request.
- Manage registrations, signups, or other workflows where you need to move lots of people through a multi-stage process using email reminders and Form submissions.
- Create a student referral system with branching logic, e.g. different email templates and recipients for different referral types.”
