Make a list better with check in and check out items.
CheckItOut is an awesome add-on if you need a form for checking in and out items. You might use this for work equipment like laptops and projectors. Or you could use it for classroom supplies like textbooks and subject-specific DVDs.
The form clearly shows items available for check-out and updates automatically as items are chosen. And when it is time to return an item, you can have participants use the form to check it back in.
Once you install the add-on, setup is simple. Create or open your form, click the Add-ons button, and select CheckItOut. In the pop-up window, pick Add/Edit Question Set to create your question.
When the sidebar opens, give it a Set Name, choose a question type, and then fill out the empty text for checked in and checked out items. Click the Add button and the questions will populate in your form. Then, just add your list of items to the Check Out question.
Eliminates options from a multiple-choice, drop-down, or checkbox type of question.
For removing answers to questions after they have been chosen, check out Choice Eliminator 2. This add-on is handy for forms where a limited amount of answers is acceptable. For instance, you could use it for scheduling times for parent-teacher conferences or employee annual reviews.
You can set the number of times answers can be picked before they are removed from the form. Using the annual review example, you could have employees choose what time they are available to meet. Once someone picks a time, it is removed from the form so that no other employee can select the same time.
Once you install the add-on, create or open your form. Click the Add-ons button and select Choice Eliminator 2. In the pop-up window, pick Configure to create your question.
