    Is there a way to get a google form to 'auto-execute' when it is launched?

    Here's what I mean.

    I want to use google forms as a time clock. I would have a two forms set up (punch in and punch out). Each one would have it's own icon on my phone. When I would get called into work, I would simply hit the "Punch In" icon. It would auto-execute a form that would capture the time stamp, the sender, and that it is a punch in event.

    The same with punch out.

    They would both save their data to the same google sheet.

    Is something like this even possible?

    I work at a job where I am on call 24 hours a day. I am looking for a means to keep track of my time for those call ins.

    Couldn't you screen shot each time you do that?

    The whole point is to automate the process. If I'm going to screen shot, I'd still then have to take extra time to get the information and manually put it in a spreadsheet and delete the pictures. Is be better off to just write it down and then go back and do that.

    What's the method of communication for getting "called": phone call, text message, e-mail, slack, etc...?
