A great app to add to the toolkit of anyone working in a digital world, where documents have to be sent to multiple people for editing, approval, review and acknowledgement. The support team are also very helpful in responding to issues and problems encountered by users. If the form approval could come out with a new improved method by sending notifications via email or phone number instead of just email, that would be wonderful and super great!

Do you use Google Forms? If so, this plugin will change your life. It's incredibly powerful, allowing you to create custom workflow processes and automatically populate tables in a linked Spreadsheet. You can use it for everything from creating priority lists to tracking sales leads and customer information. I highly recommend this product because it's affordable, has all the features you need to make your life easier, and is easy to set up.

Great add on for our team! This helps our task management easier. I can easily keep track of my member's requests and work progress. The approval process is smooth and extremely quick. Best part is I can still make decisions via my phone since everything is handled via Gmail. I highly recommend this addon especially for small businesses like mine.

Paresh and his team are super responsive and helpful if there are any issues and they're constantly working to make the add-on work better and more smoothly. Thank you!
