Google Forms Part 2
On last week’s Gsuite blog, we gave an overview and a tutorial on how to use “Google Forms” to create a great looking and very useful and efficient forms that you can send out via email, links, etc. This week we will continue where we left off.
Just a quick recap, Google Forms is a tool that allows collecting information from users via a personalized survey or quiz. The information is then obtained and automatically connected to a spreadsheet. The spreadsheet is populated with the survey and quiz responses.
We left off on the functionality where we can move the elements around after you already add them; now let’s continue with the “Required” switch that you can see at the bottom right corner. If you turn on the “Required” option, it turns the question as a “must answer” question and the form can’t be completed unless it is answered. It is a useful feature if you really needed to get an answer to your question.
Now let’s say you are done editing your questions, and your titles and things like that but you want the form to look a little better. We are going to show the different tools that we can use to add style to your form.
If you look at the top right corner of the page, you can see the color palette. If you click on the color palette button, it will give you different colors to choose from, and it will change the theme color of your form. If you click it again, the last option on the palette is for you to upload an image or you can use some of the photos that Google already provided to us to make as a background for the form.
Beside the color palette button you will see the preview button, once it is clicked, it will show you how the form would look like if someone clicks on the link or opens up the form that we send them.
At the end of the form, they will have a submit button to submit the form and will have the option to submit another response. If we go back to our form, you will now see on top that there is a response tab and it will give you the statistics of how many already responded to your form. On the response tab, we can see each response individually or a summary.
