Hi everyone—I'm a writer on the +Zapier team, and we've just published a new free eBook on Google Sheets: The Ultimate Guide to Google Sheets.

It starts at the basics, with core spreadsheet and Forms features—including details about the new Google Quizzes. Then, it shows how to build your own apps with Sheets, and the best add-ons including +Faustino Rodriguez' Mapping Sheets tool (and a number of the rest of your add-ons), and wraps up with a guide to getting started with Apps Sheets

Thought you might like to see the book!

https://zapier.com/learn/google-sheets/
Zapier makes it easy to automate tasks between web apps.

Does anyone want to take over development of Choice Eliminator and CheckItOut? I have brought it as far as I can, but it needs a new set of eyes, and I really don't have the time to work on it anymore.

Forms are among the internet's most versatile tools. Whether you need a contact form or a checkout page, a survey or a student directory, a form is all you need to easily gather that information. With Google Forms, it only takes a few minutes to make one for free...

This is a survey of interest from Google in having an annual license option vs a life-of-the-device option.

Currently Chromebook management licenses are for the life of the device, however in a 1:1 situation that life is very much shortened. I raised the concern that this is costing our school quite a bit of money since we have a 2 year replacement cycle, and they listened.

Is there a way I can blacklist or prevent managed chromebooks from connecting to our guest SSID?

I know that I can force them to connect to specific SSID's (which they are), and these go home so students need the ability to connect to any SSID. But I just want to prevent them from manually connecting to our guest SSID.

It kind of works but not reliably. I just added it incorrectly under the Device Management > Network > Wi-Fi page: https://admin.google.com/AdminHome#ServiceSettings/notab=1&service=shared%20device%20settings&subtab=wifi

If a device has not yet connected to the SSID it will get the wrong PSK and not connect. However, a user can forget the SSID and add back the correct one and successfully connect. Given that you don't use a PSK they can join again without one.

I am so disappointed in Google deprecating their web-hosting in drive. That said, is there any free places, that I can post and edit html files on the web, similar to how I could with Drive (using html editey)?

its easy to move from drive hosting to firebase or google cloud storage hosting. if you dont go over the free quotas, its free and with much better performance than drive hosting.

If Blogger just "sits" for a while, that is fine. It's not really in desperate need of anything at the moment... I'm not really interested in a blog inside Sites; instead, I am more interested in using Sites to do what blogs do not do well, which is screen-wide content.

Apparently if you place the Lenovo N21 on top of other N21's it will shut off the device.

You know, in the last year I've had a couple units have this problem "sporadically" and usually only when in IT's hands...they were fine out in the wild. This explains a lot!
