Fast & simple online form creation

PandaDoc is similar to Google Forms in that both tools offer a streamlined form creation process. Using the drag and drop interface, all you need to do is select your question types and add them to your form builder.  Arrange them in a way that makes the most sense for your use case, and then publish the form. Using either tool, both building and publishing forms follow an intuitive workflow.

Perfect website embeds

Just like Google Forms, PandaDoc Forms uses HTML/CSS embed codes to add forms to your website. This functionality works for any site, including WordPress websites and those powered by an alternative CMS. All you need to do is copy the code and paste the HTML into your website, blog, or landing page to generate the form on your own domain. As respondents answer your questions, data will be captured by PandaDoc and stored in your PandaDoc account for fast, easy, and secure access.

Easy data collection & analysis

Google Forms offers incredible analytics and data collection tools because everything is connected via Google Drive and Google Analytics. With PandaDoc, you’ll still have access to many of those same tools! Using PandaDoc, you can export your stored data into a CSV file and analyze it using Google Sheets or Excel.  PandaDoc can also connect to Google Analytics, but we offer real-time user metrics on our forms and documents, so you can collect data sets in two separate places.

Responses on the go

Whether you create a great online survey or you’re building forms for hiring and feedback, none of the information will help you if you lack access. Fortunately, both PandaDoc and Google Forms make it easy to access all of your information on the go. While there isn’t a Google Forms mobile app, you access your forms via Google Drive, where all of your form information is stored.  With PandaDoc, our mobile app allows you to review and organize your form data all in one place.

Support when you need it

Historically, Google support can be tough to access. Google Workspace users have access to chat support via the desktop admin, but their support options are limited. With PandaDoc, you’ll always have access to 24/7/365 chat support inside our app. We offer this to every user, including users on our free eSign plan. Rather than spending hours looking through confusing support documentation, PandaDoc can help you answer your question quickly so that you can get back to building your next great form.

Design better documents with PandaDoc

Powerful document creation tools

If you’ve used Google tools in the past, you’re no stranger to document creation. That’s what makes PandaDoc one of the best Google Forms alternatives. Using PandaDoc, you can create incredible forms, sales proposals, contracts, and more all in one place. Best of all, you can still use Google Docs to build your drafts before you import them to PandaDoc. For many sales and marketing pros, PandaDoc is the place to go for advanced features that transform the document creation process.

Capture legally-binding e-signatures

While Google Forms can help you build free forms, it lacks the ability to capture electronic signatures as the web form is completed. If you’re using Google Forms to generate permission slips, requests for access, or other form types that would require a signoff, Google Forms users have no way to confirm their identity. PandaDoc Forms help you validate the authenticity of the user and creates a digital certificate at the time of signature so that signoffs are authentic.

Payment collection on your forms

Ever wanted to collect payments on your forms? Google Forms offers a variety of form fields, but online payment collection isn’t native to the platform. With PandaDoc, you can easily collect funds on any form, survey, or questionnaire without a plugin or extension. These payment gateways are built into PandaDoc, so capturing payment via Stripe, Paypal, and other popular platforms is easier than ever.

Integrations galore

Google products are flexible because many tools integrate with them through Zapier connections.  While that’s true for Google Forms, PandaDoc Forms offers more robust and native integration options with your favorite CRM and sales tools. Our integrations simplify the automation and handoff that needs to take place for your software to work seamlessly together, whether you need to build a sales quote from a form lead or find elements for a new proposal design.

Custom-fit forms & templates

One of the major areas where Google Forms is limited comes down to customization. While Google will allow you to change the form font and color, you won’t find many customization options beyond that. This is one area where PandaDoc and many other Google Forms alternatives (Wufoo, SurveyMonkey, JotForm, etc.) excel. With PandaDoc Forms, you’ll be able to give your form a look and feel that makes sense for your brand.  You can even jumpstart the form creation process by choosing any one of 100+ templates from our library.

Top-notch form security

Some of the other online form builders in today’s market excel at specific things like email marketing or online surveys, but most of these alternatives only offer their best security to top-paying customers. Often, security upgrades are billed as a costly add-on or top-tier-only solution. Google Forms and PandaDoc both offer HIPAA-compliant security at no extra cost. That’s what makes PandaDoc Forms one of the most secure alternatives to Google Forms.
