Google Order Form Basics

A Google order form is a form hosted by Google that gives you the option to use their templates and building blocks. Google has made designing your next form as easy as designing documents in their ecosystem. You can select from multiple question types, drag-and-drop to reorder questions, and customize values as easily as pasting a list. You can also customize colors, images, and fonts to adjust the look and feel or reflect your organization’s branding.  With the ease of building Google forms, you can be sure that the information you need to run your business efficiently is obtained.  Examples of forms that you can create in Google are: 
  • Simple order forms
  • Online order forms
  • Fundraiser order forms
  • Purchase order forms
  • Online payments
  • Product order forms
  • Services forms 
  • Contact forms

Essential fields to include in your order form

What should your Google order form include? Here are 3 things every successful Google order form includes:

1. Are you a new or existing customer? 

This very simple question allows the person on your team fielding the order request to access the customer’s prior orders or their file. This is a great way to start segmenting your incoming orders and know what kind of customers you are engaging with.  If they’re an existing customer, it may also help route the conversation to the right person on your team.

2. Basic contact details:

  • Name
  • Phone number
  • Email address
  • Preferred contact method
  • Additional questions and comments

3. Other contact information you might ask for:

  • Shipping address
  • Payment terms 
  • The item that they wish to order
  • Details that may help specify a certain model
  • Special order notes 
  • Product options such as sizing, number, etc.

Common types of order forms

The 5 most common types of Google order forms include:
  1. Product order—Offer drop-downs with product details or note boxes so customers can be specific about what product they are ordering. 
  2. Service order–Include Date fields in your service forms so you know when your services should be added to your Google calendar. 
  3. Delivery order–Obtain specific addresses and delivery instructions to impress customers with your customer service and delivery. 
  4. Fundraiser order–Request their contact information so you can follow up with donors about the impact their generosity is making for your cause. 
  5. Sales order– Have a simple and easy payment intake form, so people don’t get frustrated while trying to put in their payment details. 

Important details to keep in mind

Considering your next form–whatever the purpose or goal–is a piece of content representing your business, you will want to make sure that it follows your branding guidelines and rules. Your leads and established customers should be able to recognize pieces of content that come from your brand wherever they are consuming it. Keep in mind the following design elements when customizing your form: 
  • Business Logo and secondary imagery
  • Business color palettes 
  • Typeface/Font usage
  • Font colors 
  • Graphics 
  • Responsive design (for optimal viewing across devices)
