Overall Satisfaction with Google Forms

I use Google Forms for information gathering across departments for consistent input. It allows donors to provide data at their own pace and schedule. It solves the challenge of multiple sessions and schedule coordination.
  • Flexibility in format. Allows for many types of data collection.
  • Intuitive. No special training is required to use.
  • Rich in graphic integration. Allows for customization and branding.
  • Export tools. It could use additional exportable formats for integration with other reporting tools.
  • Mobile formatting. Could improve in portable layouts for tablets or phones.
  • Templates. Additional preset design templates would be welcome.
  • Saves time in person-direct sessions or interviews.
  • Provide mass distribution in simple electronic mediums.
  • Customization and branding reflects in a more personal experience for the donor.
Google Forms is task-specific and simple in form. Removing complexity from the process is a great plus that not many other platforms offer.
  • Employee Surveys
  • Customer Surveys
Great tool for data gathering direct to clients and users, distributable via Google Form direct invitation, email, or link. Many customizations for the type of input makes it nimble: button types, fields, mutually exclusive buttons, text input, etc.
