Seamlessly Integrate Google Forms with Zapier for Enhanced Workflow Automation

Published on Feb 28th, 2024

In today's fast-paced digital environment, streamlining work processes is key to efficiency. Many businesses and individuals use Google Forms for gathering data and feedback, but the real magic happens when you integrate it with Zapier, a powerful automation tool that connects your apps and services together. In this article, we'll guide you through the steps to use Zapier with Google Forms, boosting your productivity and data management capabilities.

To start, make sure you have active accounts for both Google Forms and Zapier. If you’re new to Zapier, sign up for an account - it’s a straightforward process.

Once you’re set up, here’s how to connect Google Forms to Zapier to automate tasks:

Step 1: Create Your Google Form

Before you can integrate with Zapier, you need a Google Form. If you haven’t already created one, go to Google Forms, select a template or start a form from scratch, and customize it to your needs.

Step 2: Make a Zap

Log in to your Zapier account, and on the dashboard, click on ‘Make a Zap!’ This will be the trigger for your automated workflow.

Step 3: Choose Google Forms as Your Trigger App

Search for and select Google Forms as the Trigger App. This means that the automation will start whenever someone fills out your form.

Step 4: Select a Trigger

You’ll be prompted to choose a trigger event. Select 'New Response in Spreadsheet' because Google Forms stores responses in a linked Google Sheet.

Step 5: Link Your Google Account

Zapier requires permission to access your Google Forms data. Follow the steps to link your Google account and grant the necessary permissions.

Step 6: Set up Trigger

Select the specific Google Sheet document and worksheet that corresponds with your Google Form.

Step 7: Test the Trigger

To ensure everything is working correctly, test the trigger. Zapier will fetch the latest entry in your Google Form’s spreadsheet to confirm the connection.

Step 8: Choose an Action App

After the trigger is set, you must pick an Action App - the app that will perform actions based on the form submissions. This could be anything from adding a new row to another spreadsheet, sending an email via Gmail, or creating a task in a project management tool.

Step 9: Customize the Action

Depending on what Action App you choose, you’ll have different options. Set these up according to what you want to happen when a form is submitted.

Step 10: Test the Action

After setting up the action, test it to ensure it functions as expected when receiving new Google Forms data.

Step 11: Name and Turn On Your Zap

Give your Zap a descriptive name and turn it on. Your automation is now active, and you can sit back as Zapier takes care of routine tasks for you.

By integrating Google Forms with Zapier, you turn each form response into a catalyst for a seamless workflow. Whether you're sending notifications, populating databases, or triggering custom workflows, this connection is a game-changer for productivity.


The synergy between Google Forms and Zapier opens up a world of efficiency for users. By automating repetitive tasks, businesses can focus on what they do best—serving their customers and growing their brand.
