How can I share Google keep checklist to 100 people so they can each fill out their own list independently without interrupting each other?
There is a way to do this, although it is a little messy.Create your list.Give it a title.Label it with a project name. Make a copy of your list.Share the copy with person #1 and add their name in the title.Archive the shared list (to keep your main Keep view less cluttered). Repeat the "make a copy" section steps 98 more times, sharing with a different person each time.Share the original with the 100th person.Add their name to the title.Archive the shared list. This will take time to set up, but you will have 100 discrete lists shared with 100 individuals. You will also have a means to view all of the lists (find your label in the navigation panel by clicking the three lines in the upper left) while keeping your main view uncluttered. Adding each individual's name to the title helps you scan through the lists, and you can always use search to surface one quickly.

How can I get more parents to fill out my survey?
It sounds like you are working off of a list survey or google form survey. If this is the case, a simple thing to get parents is to ask your own. Funny enough parents normally know parents and having your parents share your survey with their friends or thru social media will help you build a network of parents.Another good way to get more parents is by joining parenting groups and asking for parents feedback. Make sure to include what the survey is about and what their opinions may impact. Most of the time when you state how giving an opinion in a survey may impact people are more willing to participate.If you are using a panel survey, it’s a simple click of a button to sort your demographics. Or you can always ask a pre qualification question.
