Load content from Google Slides
Consider that you have the questions/fields for the form in a Google Slide. And you want to build a Google Form using that data.
Select the pattern All Slides, Current Slide, or Selected Content.
All Slides: If you select the All Slides as the name suggests it selects the entire file content and loads all the fields available for you.
Current Slide: If you select the Current Slide as the name suggests it selects the current slide content and loads all the fields available for you.
Selected Content: If you want only selected content to be loaded then you can select this pattern.
Click GET button
Form Builder lists all fields and makes fields/questions ready for you to import
You can change the pattern and hit the GET button to refresh the list of fields/ questions.
Below is the sample data you can see the pattern.
Prepare Google Form and Importing
Click on Choose or Create to add new fields to the existing Form or to create a new Form
After selecting the Form you can see the Form name just below the Change and Create button.
You can access the selected Form by clicking on the Open in New icon.
You can import individual fields by clicking on the pin icon button under Action
You can also import the selected fields by clicking the Import Now button
You can configure the question i.e. its type, and option values by clicking the setting icon.
Switch on the Overwrite Form Content if you want the content of the selected form (fields/questions) to be cleared (deleted) before import.
If you like to change option type items from the listed question to some other options type you can achieve this by selecting options from the Make options as a drop-down to choose Multiple choice or check box or drop down.
Before doing the actual import, you can (optionally) customize the configuration of any field/question that is listed
Click on the GEAR/ Settings icon in the list to open a comprehensive custom configuration GUI. You can mark a field as required, change type, and set answer options using this custom configuration GUI
For Example: if the question type is multiple choice and you want to change it to drop down you can easily change its type or even its option values also can be easily change.
If the question is custom-configured and marked as required, then GEAR icon's color will change.
Google Slides Formatting Rules and Tips
The Form Builder recognizes slide content in the following ways:
If the text on a slide is followed by bulleted or numbered values, the Form Builder automatically converts the text into a question, and the bulleted or numbered values become answer options with a multiple-choice question type.
If a question text is followed by "[points]" at the end, the value inside the brackets represents the number of points for that question.
If a bulleted or numbered item is in bold font, it is considered a correct answer, and the form is set as a quiz.
If the text or question does not have any bullet points or numbered values following it, it is considered a simple question with the question type set to short answer.
Any images in the Google Slide are imported as images in the Google Form.
You can set a question as required by making it in bold font.
If multiple-choice questions have "OTHER" (in capital letters) as the last option, it will be imported with the "Enable Other" property for multiple-choice questions.
