Seamless Integration of Google Forms with Zapier: Enhance Your Workflows

Published on Feb 28th, 2024

Integrating Google Forms with Zapier is a straightforward process that can significantly enhance your workflow efficiency. Zapier is an online automation tool that connects your favorite apps, such as Gmail, Slack, Mailchimp, and over 2,000 more. This powerful tool can connect two or more apps to automate repetitive tasks without coding or relying on developers to build the integration.

Here's how you can integrate Google Forms with Zapier:

Step 1: Create Your Google Form
To start, you need a Google Form. Google Forms is a free form builder that lets you easily collect information. If you haven't already, create a form at

Step 2: Make a Zapier Account
Next, sign up for a Zapier account at if you don't already have one. It's free to get started, and there are various pricing tiers available depending on the complexity of your needs.

Step 3: Create a Zap
Once logged in to Zapier, click on 'Make a Zap'. Zaps are automated workflows that connect your apps and services together. In this case, you will be creating a Zap that triggers every time your Google Form is filled out.

Step 4: Choose Google Forms as the Trigger App
Search for the Google Forms app and select it as the trigger in your Zap. After selecting, you will need to give Zapier permission to access your Google account to see your forms.

Step 5: Select Trigger Event
Choose the trigger event, which would typically be 'New Response in Spreadsheet'. This means your Zap will trigger whenever a new form submission is added to the spreadsheet linked to your Google Form.

Step 6: Select Google Form and Spreadsheet
You'll need to specify which Google Form to monitor for responses. If your form responses are not already being sent to a Google Sheet, you'll be prompted to create one.

Step 7: Test the Trigger
Zapier will ask you to test the trigger to ensure it's working correctly. This step will retrieve a recent form submission to use as sample data.

Step 8: Choose an Action App
After setting up the trigger, choose the app where you want the data from your Google Form to go. It could be your CRM, a project management tool, or even just a notification service like email or Slack.

Step 9: Customize the Action
Customize what will happen in the action app when your Google Form is filled out. This might mean creating a new contact in your CRM with the form's data, creating a task, or sending a notification.

Step 10: Test the Action
Zapier will then prompt you to test the action to ensure it works as expected. Send a test to the action app and confirm the outcome.

Step 11: Name and Turn on Your Zap
Give your Zap a name that easily identifies its purpose and turn it on. Your integration is now complete!

Tips for Optimization:

  • Set up filters to trigger actions only for specific form responses.

  • Use multi-step Zaps to send data to multiple tools from a single form submission.

  • Regularly check your Zap history to troubleshoot any issues that come up.

Integrating Google Forms with Zapier automates data transfer and actions based on form responses, improving productivity and the timeliness of your tasks.
