The Google Forms API provides programmatic access for managing Google Forms and acting on responses— empowering developers to build powerful integrations on top of Forms.

Available to all Google Workspace customers, as well as legacy G Suite Basic and Business customers and users with personal Google Accounts

We’ve shared a couple of updates on the new Google Forms API previously here on Apps Script Pulse. The good news is the Forms API is now out of beta and available for testing and deployment. For Google Apps Script devs I’m sure you are thinking ‘but we can use the Forms Service?’ You can and likely in most instances to be the first port of call, but the new API brings some additional functionality not supported in Forms Service, in particular, a trigger when a Google Form is edited.

Google have provided an example of how the new Form API can be used in an Apps Script project with this Google Forms API Apps Script web app demo. Also as previously highlighted Christian Schalk is speaking at the Google Cloud Innovators Hive event March 29-30, 2022 and we are anticipating a session on the new Google Forms API.
