How To Use The New Google Forms

Google Forms gets an update. Every time there is an update we wonder what’s new and where to find the old functions we liked.

For starters, Google Forms didn’t automatically update, you have to enable the change by clicking on “Try the New Google Forms”. I didn't even the notice the change until someone pointed it out.


Now there is a new toolbar on the right. form3.jpg

Once you click on the answer, a menu will appear. Choose from the drop down menu the type of response you want. form7.jpg

There’s a new top toolbar. forms3.jpg

Use the change color palette option to change the theme. Press the button on the lower right corner. Screenshot 2016-01-26 at 7.57.05 PM.png  
Then, select the type of background theme you are looking for. There are a lot more theme options than before. Screenshot 2016-01-26 at 8.01.12 PM.png

Settings- has the only can submit one response option and the edit responses.

There’s a new Send button. When you press it you get another sub-menu. Screenshot 2016-01-26 at 7.34.56 PM.png

Notice that it gives you three options for sending the form via email, as a link, or has an embedded html. The send via link now lets you shorten the url with one click. No more going to separately to create the shorten url. form 4.jpg

Use the embed html option to embed the form to your website or blog. Screenshot 2016-01-26 at 7.42.23 PM.png

The responses are in the second tab next to questions. Screenshot 2016-01-26 at 7.46.35 PM.png

Click on the accepting responses option to disable it. You can turn this off when you are done administering the quiz. This is especially important if you are using the same Google Form for more than one group or when you don’t want the students to spend more time on it then what you’ve allotted. form6.jpg

Clicking on the green cross will allow you to see your responses in Google Sheets. forms5.jpg
