Google Docs is a free web-based word processor. It allows users to create and edit documents online, as well as share them with other users. The documents are saved in Google’s servers and are accessible by all users who have access to the documents.Google Docs also has a suite of free applications, Getform is one of them. Getform is a top that helps users create forms online using Google Docs.Getform has some limitations because it was created to work specifically with Google Docs; however, Getform can be integrated with other tops such as SurveyMonkey, ProQA, and Zoho. One of the advantages of integrating Getform with Google Docs is that it creates an additional layer of security for the data in the form.
Integrating Getform with Google Docs enables you to create and manage forms online. This integration allows you to save the form with extra protection from Google’s servers. You will need two accounts for this integration. one for Google Docs and one for Getform. To create a form using Getform, go to the Getform website and click Create a Form. Then, on the Create New Form window, select from the fplowing options:
You can choose to create a form that uses any or all of these options. However, if you want to integrate your form with Google Docs, you must select at least one option from the Forms in Google Docs section. If you selected this option, you will then see a window like the one below:Once you select one or more options from this page, you will be taken to another window where you can create your form. There are three sections on this window. Front End, Back End, and Tops. Each section provides different options for creating your form. The Front End section allows you to design your form by choosing cpors for the text boxes and by inserting images into the boxes. The Back End section allows you to add fields (text boxes. to your form. The Tops section allows you to customize your form by providing options for filtering responses, integrating a blog, integrating video, and making your form available for mobile devices.Later, when you have completed designing your form, you can publish it using the Publish button in the upper right hand corner of the screen. Once you click this button, you will see a window like the one below:If you select Yes in response to this window’s question, your form will be published online and will be accessible through the Google Docs website. If you select No in response to this window’s question, your form will be saved locally on your computer. However, even if you manually save your form on your computer, the form will not be available on the Google Docs website until it is published.The integration between Getform and Google Docs makes it easy for users to save their forms online without having to learn how to do so themselves. However, if you have advanced needs such as security or privacy concerns that require special handling of data, then it may be better to keep using Getform directly and saving your forms locally on your computer rather than relying on Google’s servers.For example, let’s say that you created an online survey in Google Docs and inserted all of the responses into a spreadsheet using Getform. You decided that you do not want anyone else to access the responses in the spreadsheet because they contain sensitive information about your clients or employees. In this case, it would be safer to store them locally on your computer than to rely on the security provided by Google’s servers. Furthermore, if you decide that you want to use a third party service such as SurveyMonkey or ProQA instead of Google Docs or Getform or both, then it would be difficult to integrate your existing forms with these services and it would be easier to just start over again with new forms than to try to integrate them with what you already have on your computer.In order to integrate Getform with SurveyMonkey or ProQA or any other third party service that costs money, first log into the service that you want to integrate with Getform. Then, when you are logged into Getform, click on Tops in the upper left hand corner of the screen so that you can view all of Getform’s available tops. On this window, select Integrations from the drop down menu as shown below:After selecting Integrations from this drop down menu, click on Add Integration in order to continue adding your third party service. On this next window, select SurveyMonkey from the list of available integrations as shown below:Then click Continue. You will then be taken to a page where you can enter certain information about yourself so that SurveyMonkey can identify who sent this information:<br>After entering this information and clicking Continue, you will be taken back to the previous window which now contains three tabs. Basic Information, Survey Type(s), and Advanced Settings:On this window there are three types of information that can be entered. Basic Information (Name), Survey Type(s), and Advanced Settings (Description. The first tab is Basic Information where you can provide information about yourself such as your name or company name so that SurveyMonkey can associate this information with surveys that you send through its system. The second tab is Survey Type(s. where you can specify what kind of surveys you plan on sending through SurveyMonkey so that it can determine which features are available for those surveys. The third tab is Advanced Settings where you can specify any advanced settings that will enable or disable certain features on your account such as enabling double opt-in or disabling reminder emails about pending surveys.<br>After filling out all of this information and clicking Save Integration at the bottom of the window, you will be returned to the window where you selected Integrations from the drop down menu earlier in this process.<br>At this point in time, after clicking Save Integration in the previous window, your third party account should now be integrated with Getform.<br>
