Google Forms is an immensely popular and one of the best free form tools anyone can use. But despite its popularity, a lot of newcomers don’t know where to find it or create their first forms in Google Forms.
So, they usually ask the question: “Where is Google Forms?”.
Here are some tips to help you get started with this amazing tool.
What is Google Forms?
If you already know what Google Forms is and you just want to find out where to locate and open this application, feel free to skip to the next section. If you want to know more however, here’s a brief introduction.
Google Forms is a free online software for creating surveys. It is offered by Google. It lets you create personalized quizzes or surveys to collect data from people. You can then connect it to a spreadsheet to record the answers for you automatically in real-time.
Google Forms is available online and can be accessed on your browser. You only need an internet connection and a browser to access this cloud-based application.
With Google forms, you can start surveys, collect client information, create sign-up forms, collect RSVPs, or create quizzes with a simple online form. Once the form is created, you can share it by email, a direct link or on social media where everyone can participate.
One of the cool features of this application is its ability to let you share and collaborate with different people on the same form, and in real-time.
With that being said, let’s now look at how and where to find Google Forms.
Where is Google Forms?
Google Forms is on the cloud. If you need to open and work with Google Forms, you’ll need to access it through your internet browser.
However, it is a requirement to own a Google account before you can access Google Forms. Google Accounts are free, and signing up for one is a breeze.
NOTE: If you have a Gmail address, you already own a Google account, so you won’t need to create an account again – you can simply sign in to Google Forms using your Gmail details.
You’ll need to provide Google with some basic information to open for you a free Google account, like name, date of birth, and location. When you open a Google account, Google will automatically give you a Gmail email address that you can use to access all the Google apps including Google Forms.
If you don’t already have a Google account, create one here.
Now that we have our Google account (or Gmail email address), let’s see how we can use it to access Google Forms.
