Advanced guide

You can also integrate your form with automation tools like Zapier or Make (formerly Integromat) to handle form submissions.

These integrations allow you to:

✅ Send data from online form submissions to a Google Sheet

✅ Send collected data to destinations beyond just spreadsheets:

  • CRMs
  • Email marketing tools
  • Databases
  • And more

✅ Trigger multi-step workflows and actions, such as:

  • Sending notifications
  • Updating other apps
  • Running code snippets

In essence, automation tools provide powerful integration capabilities to connect your forms with various apps and services. This allows you to streamline processes and automate tasks based on form submissions.

While Google Sheets integration is straightforward for data collection, tools like Zapier and Make offer more advanced capabilities, albeit with more complex setup requirements.
