Google Forms

Google Forms is an easy way to collect information from students or others you are working with. Here is some basic information about Google Forms. Once you create a survey/form, you can either link to it from your WordPress site or embed it on a page or post.

To link to your form:

  • Navigate to your form while logged in to Google
  • Click the “Send” button in the upper right
  • Select the link icon
  • Copy the link
  • Add the link to your page/post in WordPress

To embed your form:

  • Activate the Google Docs Shortcode plugin on your site (from Plugins in dashboard)
  • Get the link to the Google Form
    • Open your Google Form
    • Click the “Send” button in the upper right
    • Select the link icon
    • Copy the link
  • Add shortcode to page/post
    • In the block editor, create a “Shortcode” block.
    • In the classic editor, you do not need to select “Shortcode”; just paste into the Visual editor.
    • Paste in the following shortcode, inserting the link for the Google Form that you copied in a previous step:
      • [gdoc link=”THE LINK YOU COPIED”]
