Details

This integration uses pre-built, source-available components from Pipedream's GitHub repo. These components are developed by Pipedream and the community, and verified and maintained by Pipedream.

To contribute an update to an existing component or create a new component, create a PR on GitHub. If you're new to Pipedream component development, you can start with quickstarts for trigger span and action development, and then review the component API reference.

Trigger

Description:Emit a new event when an answer is sent or updated. [See the documentation](https://developers.google.com/forms/api/reference/rest/v1/forms.responses/list)
Version:0.0.1
Key:google_forms-new-form-answer-update

Google Forms Overview

The Google Forms API lets you programmatically access and manipulate your forms and responses. In Pipedream, integrating Google Forms can automate mundane tasks, sync form data with other services, and trigger actions based on submission events. You can create, edit, and collaborate on forms, and analyze responses in real-time combined with Pipedream's serverless platform to create powerful workflows.

Trigger Code

import base from "../common/base.mjs";

export default {
  ...base,
  key: "google_forms-new-form-answer-update",
  name: "New Form Answer Update",
  description: "Emit a new event when an answer is sent or updated. [See the documentation](https://developers.google.com/forms/api/reference/rest/v1/forms.responses/list)",
  version: "0.0.1",
  dedupe: "last",
  type: "source",
  methods: {
    ...base.methods,
    generateMeta(response) {
      console.log(response);
      return {
        id: new Date(response.lastSubmittedTime).getTime(),
        summary: "New Answer Update",
      };
    },
  },
  async run({ $ }) {
    const lastSubmittedTime = this.getLastSubmittedTime();
    const { responses } = await this.googleForms.listFormResponses({
      formId: this.formId,
      $,
      params: {
        filter: lastSubmittedTime && `timestamp >= ${lastSubmittedTime}`,
      },
    });
    if (!responses || !Array.isArray(responses)) {
      return;
    }
    const responseSorted = this.sortResponses(responses);
    this.setLastSubmittedTime(
      responseSorted.length && responseSorted[0].lastSubmittedTime,
    );
    this.emitResponses(responseSorted.reverse());
  },
};

Trigger Configuration

This component may be configured based on the props defined in the component code. Pipedream automatically prompts for input values in the UI and CLI.

Trigger Authentication

Google Forms uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your Google Forms account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into Google Forms and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any Google Forms API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:

emailprofilehttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/forms.bodyhttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/forms.body.readonlyhttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/forms.responses.readonly

About Google Forms

Get insights quickly, with Google Forms. Easily create and share online forms and surveys, and analyze responses in real-time.

Action

Description:Add a single row of data to Google Sheets. [See the documentation](https://developers.google.com/sheets/api/reference/rest/v4/spreadsheets.values/append)
Version:2.1.7
Key:google_sheets-add-single-row

Google Sheets Overview

The Google Sheets API allows for the creation, reading, updating, and deletion of data within Google Sheets, enabling a robust platform for spreadsheet management and data manipulation. Through Pipedream, you can craft serverless workflows that respond to various triggers, such as webhook events, emails, or scheduled times, to interact with Google Sheets. This synergy can automate reporting, synchronize data across applications, manage inventory, track leads in a CRM, or even conduct survey analysis by updating and retrieving sheet data on the fly.
