I have used DocuSign while there are some similarities to Google Forms, DocuSign does not allow for creating custom forms and testing materials. Google Forms [allow] for the creation and sharing of multiple document types. Google Forms also [allow] you to import your own custom signatures and send documents for signing.

Google Forms is more basic than Typeform in terms of design style options and flexibility, but it has an easier-to-use interface. It is slightly less robust in terms of logic and crowd-sourced responses than SurveyMonkey. In general, it's a good option for generating a quick, basic solution that is easy to distribute to participants.

Google Forms is easy to use and affordable. The biggest benefit, however, is that our organization already uses other Google products heavily. Because of this Google Forms was our top choice. Some smaller departments in our organization still use other solutions, such as SurveyMonkey, but as a whole it has been helpful to standardize on a single product.

Google Forms is a much more basic tool for collecting feedback. It's better for small events or very basic responses. Survey Monkey is better for getting in-depth insights into data, including insights trends and a better presentation of the data in exportable graphs. But Google Forms are much quicker and easier to execute, and have a greater ability to be personalized.

Although both platforms offer similar functionalities, Google Form has a personal advantage and it is the impeccable integration with the different applications of the Google suite, this allows to make use of all of them in a transparent way, which in the work environment allows to perform work efficiently and without affecting the quality of it.

I selected Google Forms because of its efficient and quick customer service. I had used other platforms earlier and had trouble connecting with their team for issues.

Google Forms is great because it is free and easy to use. Formative has great features because it is able to give live feedback of responses and it has multiple question types but it is also expensive to subscribe to. Google Forms is very powerful because, in addition to the core features, you also benefit from community-made add-ons that enhance Forms features. Some of these features allow for options such as limiting the number of times each option can be submitted or populating questions from a column in a Google Sheet. Kahoot is great for quizzes or games but doesn't have the power or ease of editing that Google Forms how.

I have been using Google Forms since it started in 2008. I have never explored other alternatives for creating surveys. I like the intuitive design and the visual output of data in charts and graphs. It's easy to share the survey with others. Google Forms embed seamlessly in online courses. I have never felt the need to explore any other product for creating surveys.

We use Google Forms now instead of Survey Monkey. The question types are fairly similar and both are easy to use but Google Forms is definitely a "lighter" survey tool than Survey Monkey. It fits our day-to-day needs as we don't do robust surveys requiring large amounts of analytics. It would work best to gather information where it can either be an easy answer or exported to Sheets to be further analyzed.

We have also used FormAssembly, which is far more advanced with security, analytics, and functionality, but is also more expensive and takes a greater resource investment to train others to use. While FormAssembly can provide a lot more features, and is definitely the better choice for more complex surveys, forms, and applications, Google Forms is a very approachable and easy to use platform. We would recommend Google Forms for smaller businesses with simpler processes, and everyday use for any organization.

Google Forms definitely isn't as robust as some of the more professional tools out there. However, in my experience, I usually don't need a robust survey tool. I just need to quickly set up a survey or screener. In addition, I love how simple it is to add collaborators to Google Forms. My co-workers don't have to create a new account or sign up for anything.

Google Forms is easier to use than Qualtrics, but has less robust capabilities, especially in terms of sharing, permissions, survey logic, and reporting features.
I also find Google easier to use than the Microsoft Forms tool, but again Microsoft might have better options in terms of user authentication, depending on whether the rest of the organization uses Microsoft for email, etc.

SurveyMonkey is great but it costs money to get its full power while Google Forms can do a lot of the same but for free. When it comes to simply surveys/data intake, Google Forms is far easier to use and much cheaper.

We have not really evaluated other products because from the moment we implemented it, it has adapted quite well and has met all our expectations and needs. In addition to its good capabilities and performance, it is easy to use, something that is quite important when you are part of a large work group considering that there are certain levels of knowledge.

The only thing I really like about Google Forms is that it's free. So for an individual wanting to create a quiz or poll for people, it's great. However, for a company wanting to appear professional, I'd use Pardot forms every time. I can fully create and adjust the CSS for their layout templates so that they are seamlessly applied online with our (or clients') branding.
