FormFacade – WordPress plugin for Google Forms

Description

You love Google Forms, but not its UI? You are at the right place!

You are a startup founder or a project owner, who likes to move fast. So, you quickly put together a Google form to connect with your users. But, what do your users think when they see a form that doesnโ€™t have your branding? Does it give them the confidence that you will be able to deliver a great product or service, when you canโ€™t even show them a professional looking form? Formfacade modifies Google Forms to blend with your websites and apps. Replace Google branding in the forms with your own branding and gain your usersโ€™ trust.

Try it out

Add the following short code to your page:
[formfacade id=(public id of Google Form)]

How to identify the public id:

  • If the public url of your Google Form is:
    https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdN-M-uIQN8FfjAZul_BQi0MKYARV_vqNKFejV0QFomAjtdGg/viewform
  • Your public id is:
    1FAIpQLSdN-M-uIQN8FfjAZul_BQi0MKYARV_vqNKFejV0QFomAjtdGg
  • The short code that you need to add to your page will be:
    [formfacade id=1FAIpQLSdN-M-uIQN8FfjAZul_BQi0MKYARV_vqNKFejV0QFomAjtdGg]

When you use the short code, a warning message โ€œOwnership not verifiedโ€ will be displayed in the form. Please note that the short code is only for testing purposes. Once you tested the form and would like to start using it to collect responses, then you will have to install the Formfacade addon for Google Forms from Google Workspace Marketplace and then use the Formfacade embed code. Instructions below.

Features

Make your embedded form look like your website

Convert your Google Form into a tailor-made form that fits neatly in your website. Once the user submits the form, you can manage them with Google Sheets/Forms, you are comfortable with. Gain your usersโ€™ trust with a professional user experience, while still being scrappy.

Prefill your embedded form

Google Forms prefill feature does not work with embedded form. With Formfacade, you can append the prefill url from Google Forms to the url of the webpage that embeds the Formfacade form. Formfacade will automatically read your webpage url and prefill the form appropriately.

Analyze where users are dropping off using session recording tools

Google forms embedded in your website canโ€™t be analyzed using session recording tools. This is critical for forms with multiple sections. Formfacade allows you to analyze user behaviour and see where they are dropping off using session recording tools like FullStory or Hotjar.

Customize UI

With paid plans, you can also customize the form layout, apply custom styles, change form field permissions (editable, hidden, readonly), update the placeholder text, format the question, description, add dynamic response validations, add calculations, enter a caption to update the button text, personalize the confirmation message and redirect users to another webpage on submit.

Pricing

  • Free plan for 20 responses per month.
  • Paid plan starts at $8 for 100 responses per month.
    Ask support@formfacade.com for questions.

External service used in this plugin

This plugin uses our external web service (Formfacade). This external service provides two functionality:

  • Covert the Google Form into a WordPress specific form that renders natively.
  • Submit the form details using AJAX without redirecting the user to a Google Form page.

FormFacade collects personal and non-personally identifiable information solely for the purpose of providing our services to you (i.e. to submit the form). You can read our privacy policy here: https://formfacade.com/privacy.html

The plugin works as what I expected it to be. We are so happy to come across this. The support is also very helpful.

FormFacade as a service is great. That being said, the customer service experience was amazing. I used the Support link on the website at 7:30AM my time, and by 9:30AM got customer-specific, research-based fixes. They’d looked at my site, hunted down the source of the problem I’d described, and gave me two options specific to me for drag-and-drop-difficulty fixes. That level of service for a โ€œhey, I don’t know how this part works?โ€-level problem was mind-blowing and it’s my pleasure to be quoted saying so.
