How to use Magnolia and Google Forms together

What Google Forms offers

Google Forms is a versatile and user-friendly tool for creating custom surveys, quizzes, and forms. It offers a wide range of features that make it easy to collect and analyze data from your audience. With Google Forms, you can create surveys for a variety of purposes, including gathering feedback, conducting research, and organizing events.

One of the key features of Google Forms is its intuitive form builder, which allows you to create surveys quickly and easily. The drag-and-drop interface makes it simple to add different types of questions, such as multiple choice, short answer, and dropdowns, as well as images and videos.

Google Forms also offers a variety of customization options, allowing you to personalize your forms with themes, colors, and images. You can also add logic to your forms, such as branching questions and skip logic, to create a more interactive and tailored experience for your respondents.

Once you've created your form, Google Forms provides multiple distribution options. You can share your form via email, social media, or embed it directly on your website. Google Forms also offers the option to collect responses anonymously, if desired.

As responses start coming in, Google Forms provides real-time analytics to help you track and analyze your data. You can view response rates, summary statistics, and individual responses, as well as generate visualizations such as charts and graphs to help you interpret your data.

In summary, Google Forms is a powerful tool for creating and analyzing surveys, quizzes, and forms. With its intuitive interface, customization options, and real-time analytics, Google Forms makes it easy to collect and analyze data from your audience for a variety of purposes.

Easy peasy, out of the box

Form module integration

A very basic integration could be achieved through a form processor within Magnolia's form module. After the submission of a form, the submission executes a chain of functions. They are called form-processors. In these functions, you could send a POST method to the corresponding end point of the survey tool.

Development and module installation needed

Connect with the Marketing Automation Connector Pack

Beside the form module solution, which does not offer you to use Google Forms within Magnolia, you could also use an extension for Google Forms that builds upon the Magnolia Marketing Automation Connector Pack. This Connector Pack can be obtained directly from Magnolia alongside the DX Core edition.

The module will offer you the option to choose any type of Google Forms surveys and display it however you like inside Magnolia.

Embed surveys from Google Forms

If you only prefer to show a sign-up form, you could also create a form inside Google Forms and use a usual HTML or iFrame component within the magnolia page. If you don't have an HTML or iFrame component available, please ask your implementation administrator. They probably removed permissions.
