It might be a hot take, but Google Forms is one of the most versatile Google Workspace tools. However, it does lack customization and integration. This guide will go through add-ons for Google Forms that not only adds new fields, but enables users to get the most usability out of their surveys, forms, or even exams.

google forms addon formlimiter

★★★★☆ 4.4/5

To help those who manage multiple Google Forms, the formLimiter add-on makes it easy to stop allowing responses. While I think it's something that should be already implemented into Google Workspace, this add-on automatically sets Google Forms to stop accepting responses after a specific condition is met. This could be a maximum number of responses, a specific date and time, or when a spreadsheet’s cell contains a specific value (which is perfect for online contests).

google forms addon form publisher

★★★★☆ 4.6/5

Google Forms is used for a variety of data gathering tasks that mimic the uses of popular data management tools like QuickBooks or SurveyMonkey. The Form Publisher add-on lets you turn that data submission into more professional and easy to read documents. With Google Forms, documents are generated with each form submission. In Google Sheets, you can mass generate documents in bulk! Streamline business processes, so you spend more time on other tasks! Generate and send invoices, quotes, certificates, or any other document you can dream of. Plus, you can export to a PDF or to Microsoft Office products. There are a multitude of other features, so we highly recommend this add-on!

google forms addon quilgo

★★★★☆ 4.4/5

If your profession requires you to proctor exams or skill assessments, you need this add-on. Quilgo turns your Google Form into a proper test by embedding a timer, allowing start and submission time tracking, and even make video snapshots of respondents. It allows for integration with other apps as well as exporting data for analysis.

google forms addon form ranger

★★★☆☆ 3.6/5

Form Ranger allows you to autopopulate the choices in list, multiple choice, checkbox or grid question options from columns of data in any Google Sheet or Doctopus roster. It’s great for ensuring that form answers match values in an already existing database. It can be used for inventory items, expected attendees, or even workshop titles!

google forms addon autoproctor

★★★★☆ 4.2/5

AutoProctor is an add-on that does more than you’d think. Not only does it add a countdown timer at the top of a form, but it also checks for cheating. It’s fully customizable so that proctors can maintain the integrity of a test without having to physically be near. Once the test duration time has ended, users will no longer be able to access the form. AutoProctor checks the user’s environment and actions for cheating, such as, detecting more than one face or opening up a different tab. It tracks each trigger and documents it so that it can be manually reviewed later. Each user is also assigned a Trust Score based on how many alerts they’ve received!

google forms addon form approvals

★★★★☆ 4.7/5

This is a great add-on to use within an organization or with consulting work. Form Approvals allows for a form to send its information or data to specified users based on specific conditions. It also has the ability to set up automatic reminders and attach documents to the notifications. It’s perfect for those who need to gather information and send it through a pipeline!

google forms addon signature

★★★★☆ 4.5/5

Another great add-on for businesses, Signature allows for users to sign a form. Instead of relying solely on an electronic signature, businesses or signees can be assured of authenticity by using a stylus or mouse to give a handwritten signature to any agreement. While you only get three free signatures a month, you can bulk buy 300 signatures for as low as $15/month!

google forms addon form director

★★★★☆ 4.5/5

Form Director enables form creators to automate the information they’re collecting. It doesn’t just integrate with Google Sheets or email. Integrations include QuickBooks, Trello, Insightly, Slack, Hubspot, MailChimp and so many more. You can create to-do lists after a lead fills in their information, book meetings with clients, send new order information to a chat channel, or create a contact list in MailChimp!

google forms addon dynamic fields

★★★☆☆ 3.5/5

For organizations that use multiple forms with similar data, Dynamic Fields is a great addition to Google Forms. It imports selected answer values from a list so that they can be used for different question formats. This includes multiple-choice, drop-down, checkbox and grid, and can be pulled from different sources like Google Sheets, Contacts, Google Groups and more.

google forms addon choice removal

★★★☆☆ 3.7/5

For those that would like to use Google Forms to schedule meetings or appointments, Choice Removal is a handy add-on. Whether in a drop-down or multiple choice list, whenever a user submits their form, the item is then removed from possible answers for the next user. There’s even a helpful button that will restore all options with one click!

google forms addon form duplicates

★★★★☆ 4.4/5

When collecting a large amount of responses, it can be difficult to weed out duplicates.

Another add-on that allows you to insert pre-listed information to use in a form. Form Values is especially handy for the education field when you need to create a form with students, staff, rooms, or commonly used resources. Unlike similar add-ons, it lets you create the list within Google Forms to save for future use.

google forms addon advanced summary analytics

★★★☆☆ 3.8/5

google forms addon qr code generator

★★★☆☆ 3.9/5

One of the main issues with Google Workspace is the long web addresses that result from sharing a document or form link. One easy way around this is to use a QR code to enable an easy way for others to find your Google Form. QR Code Generator creates a high quality QR with the url to your form, making it simple for respondents or students to get where you want them to. You can even customize the QR code’s color, labels, positioning, and even add your brand’s logo!

google forms addon snip

★★★★☆ 4.4/5

Snip is an add-on for Google Forms that helps teachers or professionals turn worksheets or documents into digital forms. Users can crop and save sections of a digital document to their Google Drive and then insert them directly into Google Forms. Instead of recreating diagrams or charts, this add-on makes creating a Google Form quick and easy!

google forms addon form notifications

★★★★☆ 4.1/5

While Google Forms does have a setting for email notifications, it lacks customization. The Form Notifications add-on allows users to automate and create email notifications not only for form administrators, but also for form respondents. Now you’ll be able to send your respondents a customized email to help you further your relationship with them.

google forms addon choice eliminator 2

★★☆☆☆ 2.9/5

When you need an add-on that eliminates choices in a drop-down menu, Choice Eliminator 2 is the way to go. It’s great for letting respondents sign up for time slots or having a student choose a topic. It lets you restore eliminated choices and set the order of them as well!

google forms addon proof of certificate certify'em

★★★★☆ 4.6/5

If you’re a business that wants to empower its employees, but don’t have the funds to use an outside curriculum, consider adding Certify’em to your roster. Whether you want to set up onboarding training or test proficiency, this add-on provides a proof of certification PDF that is sent to anyone who passes the exam. You can choose from a variety of designed templates or use Google Slides to create your own! Each certificate is personalized and has a unique serial number, so you can keep track of who passed.

This add-on takes away most of the work for administrators, so you can focus on other things!

google forms addon chatbot forms

★★★★☆ 4.3/5

While this add-on is more cosmetic rather than functional, Chat-Forms converts a Google Form into a conversational chatbot. While the respondent may think they're talking with an actual bot, what’s really happening is they’re filling out a form! Cat-Forms converts a Google Form into a conversational user interface (viewable over mobile and desktop) and replies are sent back to the original form. Rather than linking a person to a form, this will make it much easier to keep leads on a pipeline!

Even if you enable users to edit their Google Forms responses, those edits update automatically into those stored within Smartsheet!

google forms addon beep voice notes

★★★★☆ 4/5

This add-on inputs a unique feature: voice notes! Asking for feedback can be difficult when dealing with busy individuals.
