We’ll walk through how to use Formstack’s web form builder to automatically export web form data to Google Sheets or a PDF. We’ll also provide some tips and tricks for getting the most out of this process.
Let’s get started!
1. First, create your web form using Formstack’s drag-and-drop builder.
2. Next, click on the “Settings” tab and then select the “Export” option.
3. From there, you can choose to export your form data to either Google Sheets or a PDF.
4. If you choose to export to Google Sheets, you’ll be prompted to enter a Google Drive folder ID. This is the ID of the Google Drive folder where you want your exported data to be stored.
5. If you choose to export to a PDF, you’ll be prompted to enter a PDF template. This is the PDF template that will be used to generate your fillable PDF.
6. Finally, click the “Save” button to save your export settings.
That’s it! Now, every time someone submits your web form, their data will be automatically exported to either Google Sheets or a PDF, depending on your settings.

How do I automatically extract data from a website in Google Sheets?
There is no built-in function in Google Sheets that will automatically extract data from a website. However, you can use a script to do this.
There are a few different ways to do this, but one way is to use the ImportHTML function. This function takes two parameters – the URL of the website you want to scrape, and the table or list you want to scrape.
For example, let’s say you want to scrape the table of contents from Wikipedia. The URL for the table of contents is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_and_dependencies_by_population.

Can I save a Google Form as a fillable PDF?
Unfortunately, there is no built-in way to save a Google Form as a fillable PDF. However, there are some workarounds that you can use to achieve a similar result.
One option is to use a third-party PDF converter tool to convert your Google Form into a PDF. This will allow you to fill out the form offline and submit it electronically.
Another option is to use the Google Form to generate a PDF document that can be printed out and filled in by hand. This option is not as convenient as the first option, but it may be necessary if you do not have access to a PDF converter tool.
Finally, you can also create a fillable PDF form using a word processing or design program such as Adobe Acrobat or Microsoft Word. This option requires more effort than the other two options, but it gives you more control over the final form.
