Set the Google Forms trigger as “Form response submitted”

A playbook always starts with a trigger, which is responsible for detecting changes in your connected applications and responding accordingly.

Add the Google Forms trigger to initiate your playbook's actions every time a form response is submitted. Click "Add trigger" in your playbook and choose "Form response submitted" from the dropdown menu under Google Forms.

If you still need to connect your Google Forms account to Relay.app yet, a prompt will guide you through the process.

Add the “Create or update record” step in Airtable

Integrate Airtable automation into your playbook to automatically create or update a record in Airtable every time a form response is submitted in Google Forms.

Click the "Add step" button, locate the “Create or update record” automation for Airtable, and input the mandatory and relevant details.

If your Airtable account still needs to be connected to Relay.app, you will be prompted to complete that connection. Make sure to allow the necessary permissions for Relay.app to sync with your Airtable account.

3

Activate your playbook

Activating the playbook is the last step in the process. Once you turn it on, it will automatically create or update a record in Airtable every time a form response is submitted in Google Forms without requiring manual intervention.

To activate your playbook, click the toggle button at the header. Before activating, we recommend performing a test run of your playbook to ensure all the steps work seamlessly together.
