    Hey Shaun,

    I have used google documents before when I was in a NCAA dynasty here on TSO. It worked really good and was easy to use.

    You can embed google docs (like a spreadsheet or a form) into a post. This is really going to help the FIFA leagues as well as some high level stuff for the staff.

    In your google form go to File and then there should be a share or embed option. It will give you the code.

    You just need to post the URL. The embed code is controlled by the media button.

    Whatever that is, it is still a spreadsheet.

    A proper "form" URL looks like this: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/{id}

    hmm....

    In my Google Drive I have a form. When I click on it, it takes me to the spreadsheet of results. From there I go to Form > Go to live form and the resulting window that pops up has "spreadsheet" in the URL where you say it should say "forms"

    It's tough to keep up with the changing patterns Google Drive gives. That's technically a spreadsheet. Find the embed code and post it here and I'll try to make it work.

    They were originally created in October does that make any difference?

    As a follow up, I created a new form today and it showed up with the correct URL, so the problem was that our form was dated.
