This course shows you how to create a Google Form and when the form is completed by a user will email you a PDF.

The course is about 40 minutes, so you could have your form online in about an hour, if you already have written your form.

Looking to improve Time Management or Organization? Online forms to emailed PDF might be the solution you're looking for... especially if your form needs to be seen by several people.

I have used online forms for Volunteers Forms, Certificates, Waivers, Training, Internship Applications, Contracts, and Surveys, however, it could be used for any use of a Google Form.

If you want to save time and keep those stacks of paper at bay, then buy this course to automate all those forms.

This course is presented by Lisa McTigue, Digital Lead, Market Style Media.

Once you start testing the template you might have to play with the formatting to get the pages to nicely export to a PDF. I don't know why Google Docs don't export perfectly to PDF, so it is something that you will have to play with until you get it right.

I prefer to walk. I write and do things on the internet.

Growing up on Florida’s space coast, during the height of NASA’s space shuttle program, Colby dreamed of becoming an Astronaut. When he found out that the best path to the program was through the Air Force, he moved to California and became a part of the new frontier, the Internet.

A diverse expert in digital technologies and methods, Colby worked at the forefront of joining the relationship between traditional media and new media (web-based media). He helped reshaped strategies for Fortune 500 companies like Sprint, Gatorade, Pepsi, FOX TV Studios, MTV, and Toyota.

Colby developed film, television, and new media content for several Hollywood Studios and Production Companies. He worked on films with Joel Silver, Paul Thomas Anderson, Adam Sandler, Sam Raimi, and Stan Lee. His digital projects have included partnerships with the UN Millennium Project, Sony Pictures International, and National Geographic.

In 2009, he left entertainment behind to help small business owners join the new frontier, the web. Colby’s clients included: artisans, authors, high-end automotive repair, interior designers, service companies, speakers, and locally driven brick-and-mortar stores.

Over the last several years, he walked small business owners, entrepreneurs, and marketers through the evolving landscape of digital media and digital marketing. Colby tested several courses on udemy and earned recognition for his efforts.

From all of us here at udemy, thank you for being such an amazing instructor! We’ve been continually impressed by your expertise and inspired by your passion for teaching the world.
– Love, the udemy Instructor Team

He studied Entrepreneurship and Marketing through the MIT Sloan School of Management OCW Project.
