What is Typeform?
It can be simply defined as a Software as a Service (SaaS) online portal that you can use to collect and share information from users and visitors in a very conversational manner.
Unlike most of the sign-up forms that you can see on the web today, the ones that can be generated using Typeform are very engaging, intuitive, and even humorous to the point that users wouldn’t feel like they are being tasked with an annoying chore at all.
The beauty of web forms that can be created using Typeform is that they can indeed be top-notch data-gathering tools without a need for coding knowledge or software engineering background.
If you can see some cutting-edge designed forms with complex functionalities, they’d have to be designed by experts with years of computer programming experience.
But with Typeform, all you need to have is the willingness to design a form, and the desire to grow your online business by obtaining data from your website users.

To get started, go to this link: https://www.typeform.com/connect/google-docs/send-typeforms-to-google-docs/
Remember that before going to this link, you already have a complete or filled-out Typeform template that you need to integrate into Google Docs. But if you still don’t have a completed Typeform project, feel free to use their free templates first.
1. If you already have Typeform and Zapier accounts, you’ll be prompted to log in, then select an existing typeform or create a new one to link to your Google Docs account.
We’ll get you set up with a Typeform or Zapier account if you don’t already have one, and then walk you through constructing a Typeform to link with your Google Docs account.

This customization will be the basis of the information output on Google Docs. Don’t worry if it does not look exactly what you want it to be initially. ‘Test Zap’ will give you a preview so you can tweak or customize the outputs further. An edit button will be very useful for your tweaks.
