Yes, maybe you can receive notifications in your email when a change has been made to your spreadsheet in Google Drive, but it's still a bit inconvenient because you can't read the message directly in the email. That's why in this post I will explain how to create a simple contact form using Google Drive that can really send the message directly to your email. So you no longer need to go to Google Drive just to check messages from visitors. And of course you can use this contact form on Blogger blog or any other website like Wordpress or even a simple pure HTML website.
Blogger recently launched its own official contact form. If you want to create a contact form for your Blogger blog (blogspot) follow this link: http://www.komku.org/2013/05/how-to-create...
Go to Google Drive http://drive.google.com and then log in to it. Click Create and select Form.
Type "Contact", choose a theme for the contact form, and then click OK
- On question title, type "Name" > select Text on question type > check on Required question > click Add item
- On question title, type "Email" > select Text on question type > check on Required question > click Add item
- On question title, type "Message" > select Paragraph Text on the question type > check on Required question > click Done
Now click Choose response destination
Select New spreadsheet > Click Create > wait for a few seconds
Click View responses, a new tab will open.
Clik Tools > Script Gallery...
Type formemailer > Click Search > Install (Make sure it's developed by hgabreu)
An authorization popup shows up > Click Authorize
Don't worry, this script is safe, developed by Henrique Abreu https://sites.google.com/site/formemailer
You can close the internal window
Click FormEmailer > Install
Select a language > click Install
Click Tools > Script editor..., this will open a new tab
In script editor tab, Click Resources > Current projects triggers...
Click Add a new trigger > timeDriven - Time-driven - Minutes timer - Every minute > Click Save
You can close the script editor browser tab
Back to spreadsheet browser tab, Click FormEmailer > Settings
You can edit the email, subject, etc. And then click Save and Close
You can close the spreadsheet browser tab
Click File > Embed...
You can copy the html code to your blogger page or any website
For Blogger, Dashboard > Pages > New Page > Blank page > paste the contact form code in HTML mode. Blogger contact form example: http://www.komku.org/p/contact.html. Yes I know my contact page seems weird because the background color is not the same as this blog, but it's certainly not a problem if your blog has a white background.
To make it perfectly integrated with your Blogger blog's theme, you may remove the form title "Contact" and then replace it with a space. You can give it title "Contact" using Blogger's page editor.
