Gone are the days when we relied on physical survey forms to collect feedback from customers, employees or individuals. Today, Google Forms or Microsoft Forms can perform the same task quickly. You can even convert a dedicated Google form into a QR code on mobile and desktop to share it.
This is useful for someone who regularly speaks to large gatherings or cafe / restaurant owners to gather customer feedback. Instead of handing out feedback forms, you can ask users to scan a QR code and complete the form. No manual entry is required on your part and all data is neatly organized by Google Forms on the web.
Before we continue and show you how to convert Google Form to QR code, let’s first see how you can get the Google Forms link from the web.
