One of the easiest ways to gather information about your customers, students, patients, or other groups of people you want to learn more about is by creating a survey. By presenting them with questions through the medium of a survey you can obtain answers that are both timely and representative of their overall opinions, which means you get results faster than asking them individually.
Google Forms makes it incredibly easy to create a survey and share it with others by e-mail or embed it on your website, blog, or social media accounts like Facebook and Twitter. This guide shows you how to do that in just four simple steps!
How to create a new form
- Log into your Google account and open Google Drive.
- Click on the New button and select Google Forms from the drop-down menu.
- Give your form a name and click OK.
- On the next page, you’ll be able to add questions to your form. To do so, click on the Add Item button.
- A new window will pop up with different question types that you can choose from. Select the type of question you want to add and fill out the necessary information.
- Once you’re done adding questions, click on the Send Form button at the top of the page.
Add questions using the question tool
The Question tool is located in the top left corner of the Google Form builder. To add a question, click on the tool, then select the type of question you want to add from the drop-down menu. You can add questions one at a time or in bulk using the Question Groups tool.
Once you’ve added your questions, you can use the Form Summary tool to see how people are responding to your survey. The Form Summary will show you how many people have taken your survey and what percentage of people answered each question.
You can also use the Data Export tool to download your survey responses into a spreadsheet so you can analyze them further.
The Question tool is located in the top left corner of the Google Form builder.
Add answers using a single choice tool
If you want to create a survey, Google Forms is a great option. It’s free to use and easy to set up. Plus, you can share your survey with anyone you want. Here’s how to create a survey using Google Forms
1) Open Google Drive and click on the Create button.
2) Choose from a template that has predefined questions or go blank with just one question.
3) Enter in the questions for the survey form by typing them into the boxes on the left-hand side of the screen. You’ll see that each question has its own drop-down menu where you can select one answer or another (i.e., multiple choice). There are also additional options like numbers and dates if necessary, but these are optional depending on what your questions ask about.
Add an image using the image tool
If you’re looking for an easy way to create a survey, Google Forms is a great option. With just a few clicks, you can create a form and start collecting responses from your friends, family, or customers. Here’s how to get started:
Start by creating a new form using the New Form button in the top left of the page.
Name your new form whatever you like; then click on Add question. The questions that come up will be related to the category of question (i.e., Text for text entry). For example, if I want people to enter their favorite color, I would select Color.
After selecting my question type, I need to decide what kind of response they should provide me with (i.e., text box or radio buttons). I’ll go with text box because it’s less restrictive than radio buttons – who knows what people will type in? And there are more options than just Yes/No too.
Finally, I need to answer some basic questions about the data I want collected such as Number of Responses Allowed, whether to make this open-ended or not, and whether this is private or public. The default setting here is set to Unlimited responses allowed but I might change that depending on what kind of information I’m trying to collect. Public means anyone on the internet can fill out this form while Private means only those people with a link are able to respond.
It’s important to note that this does not collect any personal information about respondents other than an email address when required – we don’t want our friends filling out surveys asking for bank account numbers!
Add choices using the rating scale tool
To create a survey using the rating scale tool in Google Forms, first, open up the app and sign in. Then, click on the + icon to create a new form. Give your form a title and description, then click on the Add Item button. In the Add Item menu, select Rating Scale.
Add checkboxes using the check box tool
If you want to create a survey using Google Forms, you can do so by adding check boxes. This can be done by using the check box tool. To use this tool, simply click on the check box icon and then click on the form where you want to add the check box. You can also add multiple choice options to your survey by clicking on theMultiple Choice icon. Once you have added your questions, click on the Save button to save your changes.
How to publish your form on the web
If you want to share your survey with others, you can publish it on the web. To do this, open your form in Google Forms and click the Send form button at the top right. In the window that appears, select Link and then click the Copy link button. You can then paste this link into an email or post it on a website. If you want to keep your survey private, you can skip this step.
