Now, you’re ready to send out your form and start collecting responses.

In this section, you learn how to:

Send your form


When you’re ready to send out your form, you can send it by email, copy and paste a link in a chat or email message, embed it on a website, or share a link on social media.

At the top right of the form, click Send. If the form’s audience is limited to your organization, check the Automatically collect respondent’s (your organization) email box.

Choose how you want to send the form:

Options for sharing forms.
Email—Click Email "". Enter email addresses in the To field. You can customize the subject and message contents.
2. Link—Click Link Insert link. You can shorten the URL. Click Copy and paste the link into a chat, conversation, or email.
3. Website content—Click Embed "". You can specify inline frame dimensions. Click Copy and paste the HTML into your website or blog
4. Social media—Click one of the social media icons.

Pause or stop response collection


When you create a new form, response collection is automatically turned on. You can pause or stop it. For example, if you find a mistake after sending out a form, you can pause response collection until the error is fixed.

  1. In your form, click Responses.
  2. Turn off Accepting responses. It changes to Not accepting responses.
  3. (Optional) Add a message that people see if they try to reply. If you’re pausing response collection, you might add something like: "This form is currently paused. Please try again later."

Pause or stop accepting responses.
