Sharing a form
Using forms can be useful when collecting data from users who do not have access to your sheets. For example, you can do customer surveys, collect opinions or simply create polls in which your acquaintances can vote.
Let me show you an example of how you can collect information about your survey. The first thing you need to do is create a sheet in which the information will be stored.
In the example you see, there are fields created in which we will collect data on the type of fuel of a car and the kilometers driven per year, from the users who fill out the form.
Now we need to set up the form.
In the page navigation you will see a Form button. After clicking on it, a window will appear from which you can fully adjust your form.
On the screen you can see how the form looks like. There is a Edit mode on the top of the form which allows you to edit the fields when enabled.
When hovering over a field, buttons appear from which you can hide, edit or delete the corresponding field. Under each field you will see an Add field button from which you can easily and quickly create a new one.
In addition to creating and setting up the fields you want in the form, you have the opportunity to apply more customization by the settings from the sidebar.
1. Welcome screen - From this section you can configure Welcome screen.
Welcome your submitters before they start filling out the form.
2. Customize - From this section you can configure the main settings of the form.
Upload your company logo, Form title, Description and custom Send button label.
3. Appearance - From this section you can apply design of your form.
Enable form Transparency, Form format (all fields or one by one), Form alignment, Background image or color, Font style and color.
4. Restrictions - Set up the form restrictions
Allow the form to be visible for guest, enable Google reCaptcha, share URL, share QR code url or get your form embed code.
You must enable the first option if you want to share the form for Members of the sheet only. If you want to share the form for guest, just enable Enable for everyone. If you want, you can set a password that visitors must enter before they can fill out the form.
As you can see in the image above, there is a Form URL and Embed the form in your website fields. The first field contains a link that you must provide to users who will fill out the form, and the second, you can integrate it into your website.
The Share QR code helps you to show QR code of your potential clients or submitters. You can print and pin the page on your advertisement position.
5. Thank you screen - Set up your Thank you page
Say Thank you to your submitters after sending the form. Enable Resubmitting or Redirecting after finishing.
Now let's open the Form URL to see the form.
After filling and sending the form, the message that we set for successful filling will appear.
So, in the sheet with the information we already have one record added.
