Set the Google Forms trigger as “Form response submitted”

Add the Google Forms trigger to initiate your playbook's actions before submitting a form.

To do this, click "Add trigger" in your playbook and select the "Form response submitted" trigger from the Google Forms options. Then, choose the specific form you want to work with (e.g., "Company"). This will allow your playbook to identify new form submissions and automatically perform the necessary actions.

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

Add the “Add bot to channel” step in Slack

Integrate the Slack automation into your playbook to ensure that you add new responses on the bot channel.

To do so, select "Add Step" and look for the "Add bot to channel" automation for Slack. If the channel you want to work with is "#general," enter it specifically.

If you still need to connect your Slack account to Relay, you will be prompted to complete that connection. Ensure that you allow the necessary permissions for Relay to send messages through your Slack account.

Activate your playbook

Activating your playbook is the final step. Once turned on, it will respond to Slack bot invitations for Google Forms submissions without manual intervention.

To enable your playbook, click the toggle button located in the header. It is advisable to perform a test run of your playbook beforehand to ensure all steps work seamlessly together.
