How To Create User Registration Form with Google Docs for Blogger

It is not possible to have an registration form on blogger platform. Yet people try to embed different kind of free forms that are available on the internet. Remember the fact the free forms that are available can’t save all entries in one place, say as a list. You may need to maintain a database for incoming entries. How you are going to connect your blogger to a database that lists out all your registration entries? is what I’m focusing in this article.

Google avails access to a wonderful cloud service for every Google account holder called Google Docs. You might have heard about it but might never had used it that effectively before. Google Docs service was collaborated with Google Drive later to make the ‘save’ and ‘retrieve’ operations easy. Let’s take a look how Google Docs can be used to handle user registrations,
  • Go to drive.google.com and sign in with your Google account with which you wanted to create a user registration form.
  • After successful login, your Google drive will be shown like this,

There you can see google drive createoptions on the left pane which allow you to create Docs of different formats(without any need of software installed on your computer) and saves them in Google Drive itself.

The type of documents that can be created on Google Drive are Document, Presentation, Spread sheet, form and Drawing.

Click on ‘Form’ and it would be redirected to docs.google.com/forms, more specifically to the URL like this, docs.google.com/forms/d/1qw……QQ/edit.

You’ll have to choose a name and theme for that form.
