Designing the Form

  1. Identify the purpose of creating a Google From – When you know what information you need to collect, it will help you decide on the formatting and style, etc.
  2. Change the form’s color – Click on paintbrush palette icon and then choose a color from the drop-down menu or by press the image icon next besides the colors for getting a perfect theme instead of a color.
  3. Give a name to your Google form – This option will be present at the upper part of the screen, you have to press the “Untitled Form” text to write in this field.
  4. Write a description for your form – The receiver will see this just below the form title.

Input this information below the title field.

  1. Put up a question in your form – Putting questions on the form is one of the bases of your data-collecting. Users will answer your questions in the same style you present the issues.

–    To add a question

–    Choose “Multiple Choice”, “Checkboxes” or “Drop-Down”. You can even select longer answers like “Short answer” or “Paragraph”.

  1. Re-order the questions cards if you want– By clicking on the six dots at the upper part of a card, then drag it up or down and release it in its new location.
  2. Analyze your other questions card options – If you want, you can carry out a few different actions on your question cards:

–    Press the “Duplicate” button to duplicate your present question cards.

–    Press the trash can icon to remove your present question card.

–    Hit the portrait icon next to an answer. It will let you add an image; You must hover over the questions for this option to show up.

–    “Description” –  Write a clarifying description to your question card.

–    “Go to section based on answer” – Attach a variety of question cards to different answers. To do this go to drop-down menu next to each answer on a card.

–    “ Shuffle option order” – By clicking on this, you can shuffle the answers for your card.

  1. Press the “Preview” option to edit or proofread your form – This you’ll find in the upper right screen toolbar. When you have finished reading through your Form, and you’re sure that the formatting is error-free, you are now geared up to distribute you Form.
