Learn how to make your first workflow easier.
1. Tips for multi-level workflow
You can edit the level number of recipients to be the same as each other. This will form a new workflow in which, at a certain level, two (or more than two) recipients need to approve the email if they want to move to the next level. The image below is an example for your reference.
2. Tips to save monthly quota
The number of emails in your monthly quota can greatly be saved by not sending final emails to all recipients or only sending final emails to recipients you set conditions for. In the Advanced Options, find ‘Send final Email to’, and select ‘None’ or ‘Matched condition only‘.
3. Setting in Advanced Options
To ensure your workflows have better security, you can force the recipients to sign in if they want to see the Report Sheet (turn ON the ‘Force recipients to sign-in‘ in the Advanced Options).
Another tip for a higher secured setting is not showing the Report Sheet in the final email. Some of our users find the Report Sheet unnecessary to be shown in the final email, or they do not want to make the Report Sheet available to the recipients. To do this, find ‘Show Sheets report on final email‘ in the Advanced Options and switch it OFF.
4. Tips to avoid wrong answers to question for respondent's email address
When you ask for an email address, you want to make sure the person leaves a valid email address. Sometimes the respondent will type other things into the answer box and you want to make sure they leave an actual email. Therefore, you should adjust the setting of the question in Google Form setting with our add-on:
- The question type must be “Short answer.”
- The “Required” button must be turned ON.
- The “Response validation” must be “Text” and “Email”.
Click on the 3 dots in the bottom right-hand corner and choose “Response validation.” Then, change from the default of looking for a “Number” to expect a “Text” response, and the next field will be set as “Email” format. The setting should look like this:
Finally, click “Refresh” and “Save” your modification.
