While there are a number of form creation tools available, today we’re going to focus on how to use Google Forms to collect important information of your customers by taking you through the basics of Google Forms.

So let’s get started.

1. Login To Your Gmail Account

You can find your Google form from any Google product dashboard since Google form is also a Google product . All you need to do is locate a grid like box at the top right corner of any of their product.


For the purpose of this guide we shall be using a gmail account so go ahead and login to your gmail account >>then go to the right side of the screen at the top >>click the grid like box you will see a drop down box locate drive and click.



This will then take you to a new window where you see google drive written at the top left corner of the screen under it locate New and click.




This shows a dropdown<< scroll down to More click << locate Google form in the next dropdown and click the arrow button you then choose blank form or from a template.

2. Name your form

Give a name to your form first at the top left corner click untitled form or the template form name and enter a new name.



Or from the form remove the text untitled form away and put whatever you which to call your form there once you reload the page everything will change automatically. So let’s move to the next stage.

3. Add description

In the next section under the title is where you put your form description this is where you state the scope behind what your form is really about it can be as long as you want the main idea  is to communicate your mind.



 Your description can be up to 1000 words depending on what you are write about.

4. Add questions

Google form have different question type the short type, long type, radio type which is when we have two option but you select anyone, multiple choice type, number error notification.


To see them one by one go to the left side of the form you will see a + icon click it to add the question, it will show different type of option you can select for your design.




Enter your name where you see untitled form you can then choose the response type which can either be short or long type by clicking the dropdown arrow beside the multiple choice.




You can also add sex by type sex in the next question and specify either male or female by editing the text option 1 to male and adding another option and then change it to female.


For the question type I advise you use checkboxes in this section. See the screenshot below.





Click the + icon to add another option here you can also add an email id and make if compulsory for visitor to drop their email id in order to update then on the latest improvement on your survey.


So we do that by turning the required button on if this is turned on for a question you will see a red asterick at the front of such a question if visitor fail to fill the email id section they won’t be able to submit their form.


You can also use the dot icon to replace the place of the questions by just dragging a question over the other which saves time when it comes to editing your form. The questions can also be deleted permanently by click the trash can too.

Go to the image you want to upload and click open and go ahead and click select when you are done it look like what you see in the screenshot below.
