14.9. Embedding Forms in Looker Studio
One valuable way to enhance your Looker Studio reports is by embedding feedback forms directly into the report itself. This approach allows users to provide feedback, request specific metrics, or ask questions about the report's content. It can be particularly helpful when working with clients and a limited number of reports.
How to Embed Forms in Looker Studio
In order to embed forms, follow these steps:
- Choose the area on your report canvas where you want to embed the form.
- Use the URL embed component to insert the form.
- Input the form URL and configure the styling options.
You can successfully embed forms from various platforms like Typeform, Tally, and Google Forms.
Considerations for Tracking Report Information
It is important to note that there is currently no straightforward way to automatically and dynamically track which Looker Studio report the form is loaded on within the form itself. For example, if a report has multiple forms, you would need to create different form instances for each to keep track of the related report feedback.
Encouraging User Feedback
By embedding a feedback form in your Looker Studio reports, you can create an open line of communication with users, encouraging them to voice their concerns, questions, or requests regarding report navigation and functionality. Integrating a feedback form not only makes the report more user-friendly but also allows you to gather valuable insight to optimize your reports and meet user needs.
In conclusion, embedding forms in your Looker Studio reports can significantly improve user experience and provide you with essential information for report optimization. It's highly recommended to include a feedback form or link at the bottom or footer of your reports for easy access and a more interactive user experience.
