6 Reasons Why Jotform is a Great Google Forms Alternative

At Jotform, we’re actually thankful for Google Forms. They’ve helped introduce many people to the wonderful world of form building. They provide a simple method for creating an online form, which is great news for a lot of individuals and organizations. But what if you’re looking for a form builder that does more? What if you need payment collection; integrations with the systems already used by your office; and the ability to make your form look gorgeous? Do you know that you can use Jotform as Google Forms alternative?

Stunning Form Design

Jotform’s Form Designer changed the way people think about form design. This feature lets users create beautiful, custom forms without even needing to master complicated CSS. With just a few clicks, you can turn your form into a beautiful, completely functional piece of information-collecting art. And if you’re not in the mood to harness your inner designer, then the Theme Store is already stocked with thousands of free, pre-made themes.

Jotform Integrations

Integrations Galore

What good is an online form if it doesn’t integrate with the systems you already rely on to run your business? Jotform allows you to send form submission information to CRMs (Salesforce, Zoho and HubSpot), email marketing services (Constant Contact, GetResponse, and Mailchimp), and cloud storage systems (Box, Dropbox, and Google Drive).

Google Forms Analytics


It’s important to Jotform that our users have the ability to see how their forms are performing. Form Analytics was released to do just that. This tool gives users a breakdown of their form’s conversions over custom date periods, with the ability to see what devices your users are submitting forms from as well.

Simple and Secure Payment Collection

Jotform makes it really easy to collect money. Choose from Square, PayPal, Stripe, Authorize.Net, eWAY, and others to integrate with the forms you create to collect payments for goods, donations, and deposits without any hassle.

Form templates

Templates for Everyone

Even though Jotform makes it simple to create a form from scratch, templates can give users a great head start to building the perfect form. And we have lots of them — over 10,000 in total. Every imaginable type of form, for every imaginable industry, can be found in our vast collection, saving users time.

Unprecedented Ease of Use

Jotform has always been at the forefront of easy, and were even dubbed the easiest by Entrepreneur Magazine. Launched over 10 years ago, Jotform was the first ever WYSIWYG form building tool. And every new feature release, update to our core product, and new hire to our growing team is done with the intention of making forms as uncomplicated as possible. Need more proof? We recently launched Jotform 4.0, an update that allows users to build forms from their mobile phones and collaborate editing a form simultaneously with team members. We believe anyone should be able to create the online form they deserve, and we’re committed to that more than ever.

We are not the only ones who feel like this. According to Educational Technology and Mobile Learning, Jotform is a great alternative to Google Forms for educators.
