Okay I am not sure if this is even possible or if I am asking the right question.

We want to survey the entire school as to their home internet capabilities at home, i.e do they have internet, computer, tablet, which OS they use.

We want to avoid doing another paper survey as the return tends to average less than 70% and it takes an age to enter the data.

We were looking at using a google form and rather than funnel the students into computer rooms over a couple of weeks we were hoping there was some way of when students next login IE auto starts to the google form.  We realise that some students will just close the link without filling it out, but the same students would crumple the paper survey up.

So is this possible?  Before approaching the IT guy The DP and I would like to find out a if it is possible and be some suggestion as to how to go about it so he doesn't just say no out of hand (as he has done before).

about the system

windows 2008 server
every student has a unique login
about 200 student computers
about 50 teacher computers
no BYOD

cheers

You can set an IE startpage for users by using group policy, that's probably the way to go.

That was quick.

Thank you

Is it possible to set it to only the next login so we don't get multiple entries from the same person?

I don't think so, you'd be better off automating the page for a specific time period, say set up a page one week to say "such and such will be happening on this day" and then on that day make the page you want show up. Then just get rid of it after that.

There is a "Run on first logon" script that you can run
Or use a startup script that deletes itself
Add the below line to the end of ths script - just save it into the "Default User" Profile's Startup folder

Code:
del %0




Hmmmm

Thank you

really wasn't expecting an answer so quickly or as good, half expected to be told that it wasn't possible

I spent a lot of time doing startup scripts for a customer and found that little gem, just be sure to copy the script prior to running it - made that mistake before and it is not useful




Hmmmm
