Google Forms can be embedded onto Simpplr content or an HTML tile in a few simple steps.
Note:Your Application manager must first ensure HTML tiles are enabled for your environment by going to Manage > Application > Governance and scrolling down to HTML tile.
- First, access your Google Form. At the top navigation, press Send. A modal will appear, look for the <> icon in the modal. Once you select <> you'll get the embed code. Copy the code. You can adjust the height and width as needed.
Note:You can only edit the Google Form in G Suite, but the changes will carry over to Simpplr any time you edit the form.
- Back in Simpplr, create your page or HTML tile. For pages, in the WYSIWYG editor of the body text, click the </> icon. This is the code view editor. Paste the code you copied from Google Forms. Click the icon to exit out of the code editor and see your form embedded on the page.
For HTML tiles, simply paste the same code snippet copied from Google Forms to the tile body. Set the tile height to the same as the height set in Google Forms. Click Add to dashboard.
I went to Add Tile > Text and links, but there is NO OPTION for HTML. I believe this is where I could add the iFrame, but the option is there not there. I'm only seeing Rich text and Links tabs, not HTML as shown in your clip above. What am I missing?
Hi! Your Application manager must first ensure HTML tiles are enabled for your environment by going to Manage > Application > Governance and scrolling down to HTML tile. Bringing in outside code sources may be a security concern to some customers, so the HTML tile option is optional.
Hi, does Simpplr override Google permissions when embedding a file into a page? (so if a google doc that has not been shared with anyone is embedded into a page, will everyone in the intranet be able to see its contents?)
Hi Minor. Yes. When you choose to embed any file from a Google Drive, regardless of its permissions, you're making that file public. That's the only way to embed it somewhere. So anyone will be able to see the embedded file on a Simpplr page.
Make Google Docs, Sheets, Slides & Forms public
This Google Help Center article goes into a bit more information on making files public and embedding them to another site.
