Mint Forms is a Google WorkspaceTM Add-on for Google FormsTM that allows users to quickly and easily create calendar events and Slack notifications from their Google FormsTM data.
how does it work?
Set up the form & add-on
To use the Mint Forms, first, make sure that you have the add-on installed in your Google WorkspaceTM. Once the add-on is installed, you can access it by opening a form and clicking on the “Add-ons” menu, then selecting “Mint Forms”.
There you will need to make sure the most important fields are properly populated and mapped. If everything’s ok, just save the settings and you’re all set!
Your colleagues submit the form
Possible use cases include:
- Automatically creating calendar events for meetings, appointments, and other important dates.
- Automatically creating SlackTM notifications for new customer inquiries or orders.
- Setting reminders to team members for upcoming tasks or events (by using Google FormsTM).
- Automatically creating calendar events for customer appointments or meetings.
Check your Google calendarTM and/or SlackTM!
Once you’ve created your form, you can share it with your team members and they will be able to fill it out and submit it. Once a form is submitted, an event will be automatically created on the calendar of the form owner as well as on the calendar of the person whose email was provided in the form. The event will include all the details provided in the form such as start date, end date, and the reason for the request.
You will also receive a notification in SlackTM, if you have set up proper notifications in the add-on’s settings.
