Announcement of Google Forms API

Google is proud to announce the Google Forms API. The Forms API is currently available in a restricted beta, with an open beta expected to continue in the fourth quarter.

Released in 2008, Google Forms makes it easy to create and distribute forms, surveys, and quizzes. Forms are used in a variety of use cases, including business operations, customer management, event planning and logistics, and education.

Bringing automation to Google Forms

The new Google Forms API provides programmatic access to manage forms and act on responses, allowing developers to build strong integrations on forms. The API supports two main use cases:

Customer management and support

Data analysis and visualization

Highlights of early Forms API partners

Zapier, the leading workflow automation platform, leverages the new Google Forms API to provide a better experience for Zapier and Google Workspace users. Today, thousands of companies use Zapier to connect Google Forms to applications over 4k, automating tasks and key workflows.

So far, Zapier has achieved this integration using Google Drive and the Google Sheets API. The dedicated Forms API now provides a more stable, purpose-driven platform.

The most common use case for Zapier and Google Forms integration is to send form submission data to a user-selected app within the Zapier ecosystem each time it is submitted. For example, users can automatically create Google Calendar events for meetings booked via Google Forms.

To do this today, users need to set a “clock” via the Google Drive API in the spreadsheet associated with the Google Forms they want to integrate with Zapier. This implementation works, but puts a lot of pressure on drive endpoints with strict rate limiting.

When changes to Google Sheets are registered by the Drive API, Zapier uses the Sheets API to identify new rows in the spreadsheet associated with the Google Forms and read the required data.

With the new Forms API, Zapier achieves the same functionality via the Pub / Sub notification system, tracks new responses, uses the Forms API to find and read the data it needs, and makes it a third-party app via Zapier. You can send it.

This new implementation provides faster and more reliable automation between Google Forms and more than 4000 apps in Zapier’s app directory.

Education industry innovator Zzish is leveraging the new Google Forms API in Quizalize products to enable educators to personalize the education of all their students.

Zzish uses the Forms API to make it easy for teachers to convert between Google Forms quizzes and Quizalize quizzes. This will allow teachers to search the Quizalize database of 500,000 standards-based quizzes and use them as Google Forms. Teachers can also easily deploy Google Forms as a fun classroom game for Quizalize.

Google Forms API Launch Roadmap

The API will be promoted to open beta in the fourth quarter of 2021, and GA will continue in 2022.
