Google Forms Security and Student Access
If a student accesses their myVCUmail account before going to a form that was created in the faculty/staff domain and requires authentication, they are able to access the form and submit without any errors.
If a student has not authenticated to their myVCUmail account in the browser, the form will force the user to CAS to authenticate, and they will get a “Google Apps - Invalid Email” error. Click logout, then log into myVCUmail before accessing the form. Contact Dr. Gee for further assistance.
