Key features of Jotform
Mit dem Drag & Drop Generator von Jotform können Sie jede Art von Online-Formular erstellen, einschließlich
These forms are both embeddable and highly customizable. If you need advanced features, Jotform is the platform for you.
You’ll also have a variety of question types at your disposal, including open-ended, multiple-choice, Likert scale, ranking, and matrix questions.
Jotform even gives you the opportunity to edit PDFs, build mobile apps, generate reports, and collect e-signatures, so rest assured that a variety of your business needs will be covered when you sign up.
Key features of Google Forms
Google Forms enables you to create a straightforward online form and view its responses.
Question options are similar to those in Jotform’s builder, including open-ended, multiple-choice, dropdown, Likert scale, and more.
Google will generate charts and graphs using your response data, and you can connect responses to Google Sheets.
Key differences between Jotform and Google Forms
Google Forms supports conditional logic, but it’s less advanced than some of Jotform’s capabilities. Logic in Google Forms consists of showing or skipping sections. With Jotform’s logic, you can not only hide or show fields, but also calculate values and personalize post-submission Thank You pages.
Also, while Google Forms doesn’t have automatic form disabling options, Jotform does. Simply set up your time or submission limits and let our automations close your form for you.
With Jotform, you can simply drag and drop elements into your form, while Google Forms requires you to add and select question types for each individual element.
You can also import questions (either one or more) to both form builders. You can import entire forms — even if they’re from another web page or a PDF — to Jotform.
Sowohl Jotform als auch Google Formulare bieten vorgefertigte Vorlagen, die als praktischer Ausgangspunkt dienen. Während Google Formulare 17 Vorlagen anbietet, bietet Jotform mehr als 10,000 Vorlagen, die ein breites Spektrum möglicher Anwendungsfälle abdecken. Die Vorlagen von Jotform sind übersichtlich nach Kategorien, Berufen, Branchen und sogar Sprachen geordnet, was sie zu einem leistungsstarken Werkzeug zur Effizienzsteigerung macht.
When you use Jotform, you’re able to connect your forms with over 100 other apps — and even more with Zapier — because we understand how important automation is. You can use add-ons with Google Forms, but third-party developers tend to create those. Using direct integrations provides a smoother experience.
Google Forms doesn’t support direct payments, so your only options are to redirect users to an external payment site or install an add-on. But Jotform makes collecting payments straight from your form easy, thanks to our direct payment processor integrations — just choose your favorite, whether it’s PayPal, Stripe, or Square.
Google Forms is 100 percent free, and so is Jotform’s Starter plan. If you’d like more data storage space, you can choose a Google Workspace plan, which starts at $6 per month. Alternatively, Jotform’s paid plans start at $34 per month. You can get discounts if you’re a nonprofit organization, an educator, a student, or a G2 user.
If you’re from an enterprise company, you can also get custom enterprise plans for Jotform and Google Workspace.
For example, both are PCI-DSS certified. They’re also GDPR-compliant, and you can use their platforms to comply with HIPAA, SOC 2, and FERPA.
Additional security features for both include advanced encryption, two-factor authentication, and spam protection.
If you ever need help using these form builders, there are various resources available. Both provide support representatives who can directly assist you, but they also have other resources in case you want to search for solutions on your own.
With Jotform, you’ll find plenty of comprehensive user guides, public answers to support questions, webinars, and an extensive blog. Our blog and webinars in particular will give you additional business tips to help you optimize your work.
You can even get free training, thanks to Jotform Academy, where you can watch instructional videos, take quizzes to test your knowledge, and earn a Jotform certificate.
Google’s FAQ and guides are fairly detailed. Google also hosts a community support forum and offers webinars for Google Analytics and skill certificates.
