Organization: Google Docs (Day 14)

One organizational tool that I have shared with some of the staff at school is Google docs. I make the most use of it with the administrative office staff. We mostly share spreadsheets that are simple databases. Right now, we are tracking new registrations on a Google doc, and it is really easy for me to know the status of all of the new students.

I have also set up a form that adds discipline events into a spreadsheet. It is very simple to use and gives me an easy way to track discipline data.

There are many features of Google docs that we don’t use, but we are hooked.
