How to Automatically Export Data from Google Forms to Gigasheet

Google Forms is a handy tool if you need to gather information quickly from people on the Internet, whether for organizing a quirky quiz for your online community, conducting market research, or simply collecting feedback from customers. 

Now, you can export all the responses directly to Gigasheet. The best part? Once set up, the entire process is automated thanks to the Gigasheet-Zapier integration which allows non-technical folks like you and me the ability to use an enterprise API without coding!

So, join us as we explore automating exporting data from Google Forms using Zapier and Gigasheet.

Using Google Forms and Zapier With Gigasheet

If you already have a Zapier account, finding and creating Zaps is a breeze. Here's a quick rundown of how to create Gigasheet Zaps.

First, log in to your Zapier account and head over to the Home tab. If you're all in on the generative AI bandwagon, you'll love this next part. In the section where it says, "What would you like to automate?" type, "When a new response is submitted to Google Forms, add the new record to a sheet in Gigasheet." Hit enter.

Zapier will now use AI to create a template that you can use to create a Zap to automate the process of exporting new responses from Google Forms to Gigasheet. Click the "Try it" button to begin.

Once ready, toggle the button on the top right corner of your browser's tab and make your Zap live. 

That's it. Now, every time a user submits a form, all the entries from their response are added to your Gigasheet. You can then analyze the data, perform calculations, create pivot tables, or invite your colleagues to collaborate on the project.
