Responding to a "Google Forms" survey

You may have gotten an email asking you to fill out a Google Form. Google Forms can be a great way for an organization to survey members or conduct a vote. The advantage of this is to be able to include all of the members, without needing them to be present at a meeting. Google Forms allows for complete anonymity, allows answers to be gathered over a specific period of time, and can be configured to allow members to change their vote during the voting window.

To participate in the survey or vote, you must have a google account. 
Below is a guide that will walk you through setting up the necessary account.

During the sewing workshop, Juliette demonstrated the two squares method.
