Request For Training
Before things get too cloudy, I need to give credit where credit is due. Katie Regan and Kelly Kermode are the geniuses behind what you see in the magical jaw-droppedness that we get to experience. How does it work? I thought you'd never ask.
Name automatically puts the requestors name onto a calendar event that gets created on form submit.
Site automatically gets loaded as the location in FormMule on the event on form submit (we appended it with "High School" to have Google automatically recognize it as an address and get us directions. Some say lazy. We say efficient.
Room Number is nothing special, but it gets added to the notes section of the form submission.
Email Address is there so we can send back an automatic reply with their requested date, time, and a description of what they wanted help with. Folks like reminders, right? We have ourselves CC'd on the email so that we receive it in our notifications and can contact the requestor if there is a conflict in the schedule or we need clarification. Booyah.
Date Requested, Time to Start, and Time to End are all there to create a calendar event in our Google Calendar that we have associated with our tech coach email. As soon as someone fills this out and submits, a calendar event is created for that date, starting time, and ending time. Pretty sweet, eh?!
Description of Support Requested is loaded into the notes of our calendar event and also reiterated back to the requestor in the automated email, just to remind them of what they were requesting and give us a heads up as to what's on our calendar.
Here are some screenshots that explain the process of setting up FormMule to work properly with what we are trying to do:
If you have any questions on how we set this up or would like to chat about it, feel free to get in touch. Just please don't fill out the form :)
