Themes for Google Forms

In previous posts I’ve talked about using forms to collect user data into a spreadsheet. Google has recently announced a change that now lets you customise your forms using themes.

Adding themes to your forms is a neat way to personalize and tailor them. This can include adding images to headers or form backgrounds, setting fonts (typeface, size, and colour) and aligning paragraphs. There’s also now a gallery of modern themes to choose from.

Here’s a form we used in a previous post. Note the new Change theme button that has appeared:

Clicking the button opens a sidebar displaying a range of themes from which to select:

By clicking on a theme and selecting Customise you can alter a default theme to your taste, or even build your own from scratch:

There are plenty of categorised stock images to choose from – some of them animated – or you can use your own:

Keep adjusting your form until you’re satisfied with the result:

Release track for these new features was announced on September 2nd as Rapid release, with Scheduled release coming three weeks later.
