To create a Google Docs form to embed in your website or blog follow the steps mentioned below

1.) Create a spreadsheet with the form fields you wish to expose in the form.

4.) Copy the embed code and paste it in your blog or website where you wish this form to be displayed.

Another step which proves that fact that we just don’t need web versions of our desktop software. We, as end users need web software that takes advantage of being online.

  1. Thanks for the instructional update! It looks like this will be a great feature for basic form usage. For embedded Google forms on steroids see:

  2. Hi Vaibhav,
    I’m eager to use the embedded forms feature at my WordPress blog, but all I get is the embed code, not the form. Any ideas? thanks!

  3. Hi Ggraton,
    The embedded source is in theory enough for you to go ahead with embedding the form onto your blog. However, as WordPress.com doesn’t support iframe and javascript… you might not be able to use this feature 😦

    @Hamilton: Thanks for the comment and that valuable link.
    Cheers
