    I'm sorry, but I cannot access the new Google Sites. It requires me to have a Google Apps for business and a domain. I'll try to find a way to have this. Or, any possibility that you can temporarily make us a super admin? You can invite support@jotform.com if that is through invitation or create us a login using this support email. 

    I look forward to your reply.

    I think the steps is the same. Just take your form's iframe embed code and paste it on any content editor on your Google site or using and embed gadget.

    Try these steps:

    1. Edit your Google site

    2. Click "Insert Menu" and select "More gadgets" at the bottom.

    3. Select "Embed Gadget"

    4. Paste your form's iframe embed code then adjust the gadget width and height according to your form's length to avoid any cut-off.

    That's it. Hope this helps!

    Tried this. Code does not copy there. Probably does not recognize it.


    The above description is also basically for the classic version of google sites and not the new version.


    Pleaes figure this out on priority.

    Unfortunately, none from the team are using the new Google site version. Base on my research, the new version is not yet fully released. It is only available through an Early Access Program by Google so I don't think we can provide you a step by step guide for this as of now.

    However, I've been looking around for a solution and found out that the new Google site version comes with Embed URL tool. I think this would come in handy. Try to take your form URL and paste it using this tool. I'm pretty sure this would help.

    Here's a visual guide:

    To get your form URL, just click the Publish button while on the form builder.

    Hope this helps!

    The previous sites version offered better control and embedding. You should
    somehow look into taking an access for that. It should cost around 5USD for

    I'm sorry, but this support forum cannot accept inline image attachments. You need to access this thread and use the image tool to upload:




    We will try to check this with our backend team. I think we also use Google Apps for business. Will make sure to create the guide if we can access the new site.

    Thanks for providing the images.

    Unfortunately, like I've said (base on the articles I've seen on Google), the new Google Site is not yet available in public. It was only available to those who have subscribed to their Early Adopter Program. I've been trying to create one but unfortunately, their early adopter program is already closed as per explained on their blog post which was updated about a week ago. I'm afraid there's nothing we can do much about this.

    Since none of the embed methods are working on the new Google site, your best option is to use your form URL and place it on your website as a link so your users will be able to access the form by clicking the form URL. Make sure you are using your form URL e.g. https://form.jotform.com/form/FORMID, not this https://form.jotform.com as shown in your screenshot.

    Or if you'll find any embed widgets where it allows script and iframe embed codes to be embedded on the page, try those and see if it helps.

    It simply does not work with New Google Sites as of yet.  I've pasted the direct URL link to my form several times and Google changes it to : https://form.jotform.com every time.

    I think we should wait for further updates from Google regarding their new interface. I'm sure our backend team will find a way to adopt their system, to embed forms.

    I was able to create a page in the new Google Sites. However, all features including the custom HTML is not yet available so I'm sorry to say, there's still no way to embed the form there. You can just paste the form as link.
