Google Forms and Sheets allow users toannotate using customizable tools. Google Forms offers a graphicorganizer that can prompt student-determined categorical input andthen feeds the information into a Sheets database. Sheetsdatabases are taggable, shareable, and exportable to other software,such as Overleaf (London, UK) for writing and Python for coding.The result is a flexible, dynamic knowledge base with many learningapplications for individual and group work
Who is using these forms in practice? I'd love to see some examples.
This sort of set up could be used with some outlining functionality to streamline the content creation end of common note taking practices.
Is anyone using a spreadsheet program (Excel, Google Sheets) as the basis for their zettelkasten?

Alternatively, you can use the Explore function to ask Google Sheets any number of questions about your to do list. It'll give you suggestions like "Most frequent Task" or "What percentage of Tag is [tag name]" and so on. This can give you insight into what you're working on the most and how you're spending your time, which can help you plan your workdays more productively.
Does Google Sheets work as a collaborative to do app? I'd say it's best as a personal to do list, but you can definitely share it like you would any other spreadsheet and turn it into a team app. Because of the detailed revision history, you don't have to worry about losing something because a coworker accidentally changed it.
Because moving tasks around is as easy as dragging a row to a new location, you can easily re-prioritize without jumping between views or clicking twelve times to get where you need to go.
I do love the drag-and-drop ability of rows/columns in Sheets!
