The form creation platform on the Google web will begin to test the ability to automatically create drafts for those forms or questionnaires that users have not been able to complete for any reason, reaching only customers from Google Workspace for Education accounts.
These drafts will have a maximum availability of 30 days or less if users arrive earlier to be able to complete them. The idea is that users do not feel obliged to start them again (from scratch) once they have not been able to continue them previously, either due to the need to change the device, due to connection problems, or any other possible reason.
Avoiding starting to fill out the forms again
Interested Google Workspace for Education domain administrators can fill the form that Google has made available to them so that their educational organizations can participate in the beta, for which they will receive an email message at the time they have been admitted.
Google clarifies that in order to automatically generate the drafts of the forms and questionnaires, it will be necessary for users of Google Workspace for Education domains that are enabled to also be logged into their user accounts.
It also clarifies that although the beta now reaches Google Workspace for Education customers, integrating Google Workspace for Education Fundamentals, Education Plus, Education Standard and Teaching and Learning Upgrade, this feature will reach all customers of Google Workspace by the end of this year, giving notice of it as this feature is widely available.
For now, Google Workspace Essentials, Business Starter, Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Essentials, Enterprise Standard, and Enterprise Plus customers, as well as G Suite Basic, Business, Frontline and non-profit customers, will not have access to moment of this feature, so they will have to wait a while so that they can get to benefit from it, depending on what Google has planned.
It may not be accidental to start the beta in its services focused on the education sector, given the boom of these services throughout the period of the pandemic that we have been, forcing us to transfer much of what was done in person to the digital field.
The feature is quite interesting since it allows users to pick up their forms from where they left off for any possible reason.
