Bulk generation of custom short URLs for prefilled Google forms

One of the departments at work wanted to send out pre-filled Google Forms to parents based on a CSV file that they generated from their database.

Check out this Python script I wrote for them that generates a shortened URL for each line in the CSV file.

Feel free to use and share, and to ask for clarification where documentation or comments are lacking.

Just a reminder, of course, to consider FOIP or other privacy implications associated with any data being submitted via online forms or stored in the cloud.
