Google Forms is a powerful tool that allows you to create surveys, quizzes, and other forms quickly and easily. However, if you want to take your data collection to the next level, you can connect your Google Form to a Trello board. This will allow you to automatically add new entries to your Trello board as they are submitted through your Google Form.
Step 1: Create Your Google Form
The first step in connecting your Google Form to a Trello board is to create the form itself. You can do this by logging into your Google account and navigating to Google Forms. From there, you can create a new form by clicking on the “Create” button in the top left corner of the screen.
Step 2: Create Your Trello Board
Once you have created your Google Form, it’s time to create your Trello board. If you don’t already have a Trello account, you can sign up for one at Trello.com. Once you have logged in, you can create a new board by clicking on the “Create Board” button in the top right corner of the screen.
Step 3: Connect Your Google Form to Your Trello Board
Now that you have both your Google Form and your Trello board, it’s time to connect them. To do this, you will need to use a third-party service called Zapier. Zapier allows you to create “zaps” that automatically trigger actions in one app based on events in another app. In this case, we will be using Zapier to trigger the creation of a new Trello card every time a new entry is submitted through our Google Form.
Step 4: Create Your Zap
To create your zap, you will need to log in to your Zapier account and navigate to the “Make a Zap” page. From there, you can select “Google Sheets” as your trigger app and “Trello” as your action app. You will then be prompted to connect your Google Form to your Zapier account. Once you have done this, you can select which fields from your form you want to include in your Trello card.
Step 5: Test Your Zap
Once you have created your zap, it’s important to test it to make sure everything is working correctly. To do this, you can submit a test entry through your Google Form and then check your Trello board to see if a new card has been created. If everything looks good, you can start using your connected form and board for real-world data collection.
Connecting your Google Form to a Trello board is a great way to streamline your data collection process and make it easier to organize and track your information. By following the steps outlined above, you can quickly and easily set up this powerful integration and start using it for all of your data collection needs.
