Step 5: Organize Your Form (Optional)

If you need to add more structure to your form, you can organize it into sections by clicking on the icon with two stacked rectangles in the toolbar.

Step 6: Preview Your Form and Test It

Click on the eye icon at the top to preview your form. This lets you see what respondents will see and ensure everything is in order before sending it out.

It’s also a good idea to test the form yourself here to ensure all questions are clear and the form functions as intended.

When you're ready, click on the "Send" button. You can choose to email the form (1), share it via a link (2), or embed it on a website (3).

As responses come in, you can monitor them in the "Responses" tab. The data can be viewed in real-time or exported to Google Sheets for detailed analysis.

To export to Google Sheets, simply click "Link to Sheets."
