Use of Google Doc and Spreadsheets

Postby rvterry » Mon Apr 06, 2009 6:47 am

What policies, issues or concerns are raised if a HPGL wants to use Google Docs and Spreadsheets to collect information or track reports from Family History Consultants. The report would be password protected and accessed by invitation only. I'm sure these Web 2.0 technologies have other implications for church groups wanting to collect and share information. Your thoughts?

One key factor, extrapolated from discussion here about other applications. is that we are cautioned not to upload data exported from MLS or the unit web site to third-party servers. If your suggested use of Google Docs would not be populated that way, at least you would not run afoul of that guidance, IMHO.
