Add new Google Forms responses to a Notion database

Are you trying to collect your Google Forms responses in Notion? Use Relay's integrations to seamlessly connect your form to your Notion database

Setting it up

In this guide, we'll walk you through the steps to set up an automated playbook for turning form responses in Google Forms into database entries in Notion. We'll use a swag request form as an example, but it should work for any kind of form - Relay will pick up your form fields and database columns, and help you bridge the gap between them!

Create your playbook

Your playbook is where you'll set up the steps required for writing your Google Forms responses to Notion.

Sign up for Relay to get started with your first playbook. Once on the dashboard, click the "New playbook" button, and you're off to a good start.

Make sure to give your playbook a clear name & identifiable emoji to help it stand out among the crowd!

Add the Google Forms trigger

A trigger is responsible for detecting changes in your connected apps and running your playbook in response.

In this case, the "New form response" trigger for Google Forms will automatically create new playbook runs whenever someone fills out your form.

Click "Add trigger" in your playbook, select the "New form response" trigger, and set it up. If this is the first time you're setting it up, you'll be prompted to connect your Google account.

Add the Notion automation

A playbook contains steps that will be executed during every run. Automations are steps that take some action in another tool.

In this playbook, you can set up an "Add to database" automation for Notion to create a new database record with the form response.

Click the "Add step" button, then navigate to "Automations", find the Notion automation, and fill out the details. If this is the first time you're setting it up, you'll be prompted to connect your Notion account.

With the playbook set up, you're now ready to start receiving form responses! Just turn on the playbook, and Relay will turn each response into its own database row in Notion.

Once you're happy with the way your first playbook is set up, make sure to explore Relay's other features such as AI auto-fill, double check automations, and a wide variety of integrations with Google Forms, Notion, and other products.
