Google Surveys is shutting down.

It’s a sad day for the world of online surveys, but it also means you have to find a new way to collect data. Google Surveys is shutting down after November 1, so you may need to move your data now or until December 1, 2022.

Fortunately, there are several great options for replacing Google Surveys and collecting data online. In this post, we’ll walk you through how to migrate your data from Google Surveys and into the best replacement forms available today.


How To Migrate Your Data From Google Surveys

Google Surveys is shutting down this month, so it’s a great time to start planning for when the service is no longer available.

Google Surveys was a popular survey tool that allowed users to create surveys and collect data. The user interface was simple and easy to use, but it was also limited by its design—it didn’t offer much customization options and it required users to sign up for a Google account before they could use the tool.

Here are some tips on migrating your data from Google Surveys:

  1. First, head to your Google Surveys account. Log in to your account, then choose the survey in which you have collected data. You can click here to go directly to the website
  2. Go to your survey results or the question-results page, click on Download Statistics and choose a download option: CSV file or Google Sheet File and click on the Download button. Your surveys will be downloaded and you are done.

Best Google Forms Replacement

Google Surveys is shutting down, so what are the 7 best google forms replacements?

  1. Formplus: Formplus allows you to create surveys and polls in minutes, with no programming required. Formplus is a simple, free, and easy way to create your own survey. You can create your survey quickly and easily, including multiple-choice questions, checkboxes, and more. Once you’ve created your survey, it will be available for everyone who has access to the site where it was created whether that’s an internal web app or a public website (like Formplus). You can also share these surveys through email or SMS text messaging. One of the best parts about Formplus is how easy it is for everyone involved. Here are some of the most useful features of Formplus:
    1. Create custom fields to capture all of the important information about a buyer or seller.
    2. You can add a quick note field to your forms with no programming knowledge required.
    3. You can export your form data as an Excel file or CSV file so that you can easily analyze it later on your own computer or in an analytics tool like Google Analytics or CrazyEgg. So, create your survey forms with Formplus, there are over 1000 templates for you to choose from.
  2. Survey Monkey: This tool is one of the most popular alternatives to Google Forms because it allows you to create multiple surveys in one place without having to pay any extra fees or worry about getting banned by Google itself (which may happen if you try using their own tools). It also has an extensive library of question types and templates that provides you with plenty of options when creating something new.
  3. QuestionPro: QuestionPro is a great alternative to Google Surveys when it comes to creating surveys. They have all of the same features and even offer some additional ones like the ability to embed images or videos into your questionnaire. You can also import your data from previous surveys or polls into QuestionPro, making it even easier to get started.
  4. Pollfish: Pollfish is a similar platform as QuestionPro but offers more options when it comes to designing your surveys and organizing them into categories such as demographics or behavioral questions. It also allows users to add their own questions in addition to those provided by Pollfish.
  5. Paperform: Paperform provides users with an easy way to create surveys online as well as customize them with additional information such as answers and notes which can then be emailed directly after completion. Paperform is a really simple tool that lets you create beautiful surveys easily and quickly. It’s great if you need a quick survey but don’t want to spend too much time creating one. Plus, they have a ton of templates available so all your questions will look great.
  6. JotForm: JotForm is another great option if you’re looking for something simple and easy to use. Their templates are very customizable and can be adjusted according to what you need them for (like surveys). They also have some free options available if you don’t have any questions or inquiries about your form yet.
  7. TypeForm: TypeForm is a great tool for collecting data on your website. It allows you to create surveys, polls, and other questions in just a couple of minutes. It also has a built-in chat function so that you can chat with your respondents directly from the survey screen. You can send them messages, ask them questions and even send them images with just one click. It is free for up to 1,000 subscribers and costs $9 per month for additional users after that amount has been reached. In addition, the TypeForm support team is very responsive; you’ll usually receive an answer within 24 hours if you have an issue with your survey creation process or submission process.
