The open source HPCC Systems platform is a proven, easy to use solution for managing data at scale. Visit our Easy Guide to learn more about this completely free platform, test drive some code in the online Playground, and get started today.

Here's how I did it in 3 easy steps:

(1) Set up a form in Google Docs/Drive.

(2) Choose "Actions" and "Embed in Website" to get the URL for the iframe and put it in a post, like below. Then, go to the spreadsheet view of the form on Google Docs/Drive and set the share option to "everyone with the link" or "public" and copy the document key from here.

(3) Make a report with knitr in R using the responses that were put to a spreadsheet at Google Docs/Drive. Do (knit) something like THIS to produce a markdown-file, i.e. (I pushed the md-file to Github for publishing -- see it rendered to HTML HERE).
