Whoa. This is ridiculously cool. Can't wait to try it out!
 
Here is a new geocoding add-on! It easily gets GPS data right into your sheet and automatically creates an Awesome Table map. Easy! Please check it out! https://goo.gl/6z08Ab   
Geocode is a user-friendly add-on that turns postal addresses into GPS data. Combine Geocode and Awesome Tables to exploit the results as a map with filters.

Hey folks - I have a spreadsheet/form that I want people to copy. For some reason the linked form does not copy over with the spreadsheet. Has anyone seen this? Why is it happening and is there a way around it?

So, there is a strange bug. Like +David Watkins  suggests, there is a strange bug where a linked form will not copy with the sheet unless the edit form window is set to Anyone can Edit. Good to know if it happens to you, too.

There was a Google Sheets bug that prevented the linked form from copying with my Timeline Maker project. If you copied the sheet prior to this post, please return to my blog to get the latest version. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hello Everyone,

I'm having a problem copying a Google Spreadsheet and having a linked form copy along with it. This used to work fine, anyone have any insight into why this is happening?

Introduction
I'm a k-5 technology learning facilitator for the Scarsdale Public Schools in New York. I mostly post about educational technology topics, but I get distracted now and again. Professionally, my passions include the power of collaboration and transparent bottom up curriculum systems. I also love to make stuff. Even though I'm more successful making digital things, I still love to get my hands dirty.
