New Google Forms now the default option, with improvements to add-ons, script editing, and more

February 12, 2016

Today, the new Google Forms will become the default option for Form creators. This follows Google's launch from last September, where a revamped Google Forms was released as opt-in-only until additional features and functionality could be added. Once launched, Form creators will be redirected to the new Google Forms whenever they create a new Google Form. To opt-out, users may click the “running man” icon in the bottom left-hand corner.

Here’s a summary of the latest improvements:

    • Form Add-ons and Google Apps Script now supported
      Form creators will be able to use add-ons and edit scripts in the new Forms editor. Popular tools like Form Publisher and g(Math) for Forms have helped creators extend the capabilities of Google Forms.

    • View individual responses from the editor
      In addition to the summary of responses currently available in the Forms editor, creators will now be able to see individual survey responses as well. This will save valuable time when analyzing Forms. At the same time, if there’s so many responses that there may be performance issues, Google Forms will let users know how to visit the responses separately, instead of slowing down the editor.

    • Use Templates from the Google Forms home screen
      Work and Education-related templates will become available on the Forms home screen to jumpstart your Form creation at
      • We currently have several templates for event feedback, event sign-ups, job applications, and more. Users can click on the More link to start a form from any of the newly created templates.
      • Your domain’s existing templates are still available and can be found at
