Megan,

I think Google Form is a pretty easy, quick solution for simple forms. I recently needed an online form where I had to customize the SUBMIT button and had to add a lot of formatted text and images. In that case the Absolute Form Processor served me very well:

I did not need to use an iFrame tag; just plopped the code right on the page.  I thought the whole process seemed fairly easy, and it was nice being able to have the survey within the OHR template.  The folks who used the data on the back-end thought it was fine.  I found the inability to format the survey in any simple way a little frustrating (particularly that we could not use html or embed links), but we just worked around it.

> Has anyone used Google Forms and embedded one in a Web page? We're looking for a way to post a form within the template of a site, so as not to force the person to leave to a separate site using a 3rd party form (UMSurvey, etc.). Does it require iframe tag? Is that good or bad?
