Automatically close Google Form submissions at a specific date & time

deadlineHave you ever planned a deadline for Google Form submissions (your quiz MUST be submitted by
3pm Friday!) and then forgotten to close it at the deadline? Worse, have you had students or colleagues submit after the deadline and then had to have an awkward conversation (Sorry, my mistake!) or accept their late responses? If so, you’ll love the formLimiter add-on for Google Forms!

The formLimiter add-on automatically closes Google Form submissions at a date and time you specify. It can also close the form after a certain number of responses have been reached.

Here’s how to install the add-on and set a closing date and time:
Note: These instructions are for the new Google Forms. If you’re using the old interface, just look for the Add-ons menu to complete steps 2-5.

1. Open or create the Google Form you want to automatically close.
2. Click the three dots menu botton (top right) and then Get add-ons.

3. Locate formLimiter in the add-ons library. Hover over it and click the +Free button to install.
4. Grant permissions to the add-on when prompted.
5. Click the Add-ons (puzzle piece) icon > formLimiter, and then choose Set limit.

6. Click the Limit drop-down box and select date and time.
7. Enter the date and time to close submissions in the appropriate fields.
Note: This will be in the same timezone as your Google account.
8. Customise the submissions closed message if required. For example, you may ask students respondents to get in touch with you directly if they need an extension to the submission date.
9. Tick Email form owner when submissions are closed if you want to be notified when the form closes (scroll down to find this option). I find this a useful reminder!
10. Click Save and enable.

That’s it! Your form will now automatically close – one less thing to try and remember!

Move Over Lads: The Girls Are Coming

When I ran one of my first conferences at Google HQ last April we had just over 100 teachers attend. Of those 100 teachers only 7 were female.

It was ironic, at the time Google had a massive wall art showing the symbols for male and female.

See what is happening to engage more females in the Tech industry.

What does STEAM look like?

Do you find yourself wondering what other schools are doing with STEAM? Have you started STEAM in your school but feel like you don’t know what it should look like?

The answer, rightly so, is that STEAM looks quite different from school to school. With unique communities and local curriculum, there is no one size fits all approach.

Spring clean your device

It is good to spring clean your device every now and then. With memory being cheap and being able to search for anything, we tend to be a bit lazy saving files and installing apps. Before we know it, our desktop is a mess and we have a stack of apps that we may have used once but now just take up room, so where do we start?
