Fully Customize Google Forms

Google recently released an update to Forms which included a whole new set of themes as well as the ability to create a fully customized form. Now you can easily customize every area of your form including the header image, title, questions, page background and more. To take advantage of Forms customization, you simply select “change theme.” Form there, you will select “Custom theme” and then click on the edit pencil to make your changes. The screen shots below show you the new functionality in Forms. I’ve also created a quick screen cast which walks you through the process, although it is very intuitive.

Click on Change Theme to launch customization features.

When I showed the new Form customizations features to Peggy Allegretto, the Administrative Assistant to our Principal Mark Sullivan, she was elated and immediately created a custom BHS field trip from (see below). So, the next time you need to create a form for your students, parents, club, or organization, try adding some customization to make it completely unique! Or better yet, have your students create a custom form the next time they have to gather data for a research project. As always, visit Help Desk if you need one on one assistance or schedule a classroom demonstration.
