Google Forms: Why They Make Admin More Efficient & How to Use Them

Google Forms just make admin easier.  After a few minutes of setting up, clients can fill it out on their own time!  But, there is the matter of actually following up on those Google Form responses.  

I’m a bit embarrassed to admit that while I’ve been good about getting the forms ready & sent, checking responses & answers was not always my forte.  So, I created a system for checking in!

Less prep, more info!

Would you like to spend a little less time on prep?  I think we all do. After all, who wants to spend their weekend or evenings checking for survey or form results. Been there. Done that. Realized there was a better way.

When you can automate parts of your studio admin, it makes life so much easier!

How Google Form responses help

When I created my first form, I had no clue how much I would use them in my studio! It turns out they were a faster, more efficient way to do the admin tasks that needed to be done. Plus, I got my personal time back.

Using Google Forms:

  • Keeps your inbox a little less cluttered
  • Lets clients fill in surveys on their own time
  • Has students engaging with music labs in a new way
  • Gives a way to automate routine tasks
  • Makes it easy to create templates that can be used over & over

For example, I use these forms for everything from:

  • Group lesson registration
  • Annual lesson registration
  • Client satisfaction surveys
  • Music labs
  • Group lesson games & activities
  • And more

And, those Google Form responses have helped me adapt much quicker to changes within the studio. They’ve let me know areas for improvement, given me the phrases to use in my marketing & helped me consistently create engaging resources. Not made for a free resource, eh?
