How to post a survey made with Google Forms on SurveySwap?

Did you use Google Forms as an external survey builder, and want to upload your survey to SurveySwap?

Our platform works with survey codes. If you built your survey using Google Forms, you need to make sure you paste your survey code at the end of your survey.

It is important to position the unique survey code AFTER the submit button, so you will receive your respondents once they click on 'submit', and your respondents will receive their credits, once they click on the survey code.

Follow these easy steps:

(1) Get your Unique survey code.

From your Dashboard click on the 'My surveys' tab then click on the 'Add new survey' button.

Choose Google Forms. Click on 'My survey is ready' button.

Then you will have to fill out some information about your survey. Click 'Next' when done.

Set the number of respondents and the Language for the survey. Additionally, you can add filters, to choose people who are eligible to fill out your survey. However, do not use too many filters, because the more people who are able to fill out your survey, the more respondents you will receive.

NOTE: It is important to select the correct language you wrote your survey in, because only people who can speak the language you wrote your survey in, are able to fill it out.

Click 'Next' when done.

Follow the instructions in the Add Intro section. Click 'copy intro' and add it to the bottom of your survey's introduction in Google Forms.

Your survey should have a written introduction. If not, add new block with question type “Descriptive text”.

Then tick the checkbox that says 'I have added the text to my introduction' . Click 'Next.'

Next, you will find the instructions for adding the survey code to the 'Confirmation message' in Google Forms. Click 'copy code' button and it will automatically copy the survey code to your clipboard.


(2) Make sure you add the survey code to the survey you’ve made with Google Forms.

Within Google Forms, when you are editing your survey, you can click on settings..

Then click on presentation and here you can add a confirmation message.

Here you can write a thank you message and paste your unique SurveySwap Survey Code that you got. Make sure you click on 'save' to save the changes.

Once you paste your unique code, you can go back to SurveySwap and continue by clicking on the checkbox beside 'I have added the text + code to my end of survey message' and clicking 'Next'.

(3) Publish your survey.

Add your Google Forms survey link into the box to allow SurveySwap users to view and open the survey from within SurveySwap.

If you already have credits, you can publish the survey. If not, you may choose to earn credits and then publish or buy credits.

Note: You can earn credits by taking others' surveys or inviting your friends to SurveySwap.

Congratulations! You have created your survey. From here, you can copy your SurveySwap link and send it to your friends or social media, or ‘get respondents’ by taking surveys of others!
