Improvements to Google Forms

It’s been a while since I’ve used the Google Docs interface to create a Web form; but I needed to create some quick, simple forms today. When I logged in and started creating the form, I didn’t really notice anything different.

However, as I worked more on the form, I noticed a nice update I hadn’t seen before. When creating forms within Google Docs, you can easily add section headers (along with additional text under the header) and even paginate your forms.

Another nice feature, which was sorely missing from Google Forms in the past, is the inclusion of labels for form elements. In the past when I created Google Forms, the labels I created weren’t actually set up properly as HTML label elements. Tonight, though, while testing the forms I created, I noticed that the labels were working the way they should.

I think Google Forms still have a ways to go before I’ll be able to use them all the time, but at least I feel comfortable using them in a pinch, now.
