Jotform Vs Google Form Vs BlockSurvey

Here we will compare these 3 form builder platforms based on specific attributes that users expect from the best survey platform.

Ease of Use:

Google Forms: 

Like everything in the Google suite, Google forms also has a clean and straightforward interface, making it easy for anyone to use. Though you can easily add questions to your surveys and quizzes, some advanced features are challenging to find. Most of the Google form users feel the need for a learning curve to utilize it for their survey purposes properly, and also, one major setback is that Google forms do not appear well on mobile.

Jotform:

 Jotform is an advanced form builder tool with a drag-to-drop interface that allows users to select the types of questions for the surveys and easily add new fields to their forms. These options are available on the left sidebar, though they seem a little overwhelming because you have a lot in each category. And also, this interface is a bit outdated; still, you will like it if you are someone who is used to it.

BlockSurvey: 

BlockSurvey being the youngest of the form builders, is fresh, attractive and gives a different feel for the respondents. BlockSurvey's interface is simple, endurable and anyone can create surveys just like a breeze. Unlike other platforms, you don't need a learning curve to utilize the tool's features completely. Just in a click, you can add questions, embed videos or attach other file formats; customize your forms easily by adding logos, colors and themes. You can easily add conditional logic or skip logic to your surveys with built-in features.

BlockSurvey allows users to select from a range of question types. You can easily include fields for payment options, signatures, consents and file uploads while designing your survey. And also, BlockSurvey is an AI-powered survey tool that generates survey questions according to your input. If you are down with writer's block, don't worry; BlockSurvey is there to finish your last hour feedback form or a consent form.

Templates:

Google Forms: 

When you are looking to design forms instead of creating them from scratch, you can search for free templates to use. Google has just 20 or fewer templates for you to use, which is significantly less when compared to other competitors.

Jotform: 

Jotform has a wide range of free templates distributed into various categories. There are over 10,000 templates categorized, which makes them easy to find and use. However, Jotform users feel like most templates are very generic and outdated with their design and style. Still, you have easy access to many templates to embed directly to your website, which is quite an advantage over Google forms.

BlockSurvey: 

BlockSurvey also offers a wide range of templates in various categories with simple and attractive designs. These templates cover most forms like Educational forms, Marketing research firms, Customer feedback forms, Health information forms, NPS forms, CSAT, etc. Try these tremendous and straightforward Free 500+ Form Templates!! BlockSurvey puts an end to the old-fashioned, tedious forms by having conversational style forms to keep the interest of your respondents.

Customization:

Google Forms: 

Google form allows limited customization for its users. Features like color, font, the theme of the forms can be modified according to your needs. You can add header images to your forms. Other than that, if you want to provide a fully customized feel for your respondents, then you need to go for other alternatives.

Jotform: 

Forms created through Jotform can be customized using the form designer menu in the editor. You can select pre-designed color themes or unique colors, fonts and background themes for your forms. Like most form builders, you can add elements like images, logos, and videos, but the placement options are still limited. Notably, the background of Jotform has a few details that can't be removed even if you are going with your own brand's theme.

BlockSurvey: 

BlockSurvey allows you to add a Brand Kit to customize the color and background of your forms completely. You can add your logo; images need to be displayed everything in it. This doesn't take too much effort; drag-to-drop everything you need to customize and create your brand kit. Customization is made so effortless when you are creating forms using BlockSurvey.

 White label Survey is one fantastic feature of BlockSurvey, which knocks out every other best Jotform alternative. With BlockSurvey, you can easily customize your form to your organization's brand without the process of creating from scratch.

Privacy:

Google Forms:  

Google Forms privacy settings are pretty basic, so if you are concerned about the data privacy of your respondents, then you should look for a better alternative to Google Forms. It is undeniable that Google can track your data history to provide you personalized recommendations; in that case, if you are rolling out a Google form survey, your respondents' data are at risk and making them a victim of surveillance capitalism.

Jotform:

 Jotform is a HIPAA compliance survey tool; Jotform is loaded with powerful features to help you collect and manage sensitive patient information. So it stands higher in privacy than Google forms. But that is in the case of Health information related surveys, but we can't ensure the same privacy in every other category. Either Google or Jotform, the data is stored in Google and Jotform servers, but that can lead to a risk of a data breach for you or your respondent. That's one crucial thing you need to take care of when  securing surveys.

BlockSurvey: 

BlockSurvey is the most secure survey tool with the highest data security to the survey creators and respondents. BlockSurvey is an end-to-end encrypted survey tool with a pack of rich features that provides you with complete privacy, anonymity, and security. "Data is Wealth," and offering the highest protection to your data is our topmost priority. That's why it comes as the best alternative for Jotform, with a better user experience and privacy.

With massive amounts of data being wired every fraction of a second all around the World, Decentralizing is the only way to own your data. BlockSurvey is the very first online survey tool that uses Stacks Blockchain, which is secured by Bitcoin to power up the surveys. For BlockSurvey, Privacy is the prime feature. All your data collected is encrypted using your public keys and is stored in decentralized storage.

Analytics:

Google Forms: 

The best online survey tool's job is not done with collecting the data on your behalf, but also it has to analyze the data, categorize it and present you the results in the best possible way. Google forms do a decent job in analytics with pretty basic methods of analyzing the data. It generates graphs and pie charts based on the questions you asked to visualize your data quickly.

Jotform: 

The Analyze section of the form builder gives a summary of your data, as well as the options to browse individual responses, create and export dynamic charts, or even download your results in multiple formats; you can even convert it to PDF format. You can export and print your data, and we can also integrate Jotform to 27 and more external applications.

BlockSurvey: 

BlockSurvey has a stunning dashboard where you can analyze responses, boost conversions and increase your response rates. Track in-depth data like incomplete submissions and completion rates, the number of sales, or find the questions causing respondents to drop off. Our analysis tools help gather insights to perfect your processes and ensure your form works for you.

Integration is one of the most critical things required today. It's vital because integration helps you move the data to essential systems of the organization. Use webhooks and integrate with Zapier, any middleware/integration platform which connects to 1000+ other platforms.

Final Thoughts to conclude:

Google forms or Jotform are undoubtedly the best available options; I would say if you are trying to find the best form builder a few years back. But now, that's not the case; you cannot compromise your privacy for any incredible features available with these standard survey tools. For BlockSurvey, Privacy is the prime feature. All your data collected is encrypted using your public keys and is stored in decentralized storage. You get your digital rights by giving you absolute ownership of your account/identity and data.
