Automation can do all the work for you, but if you're looking to add some personal flavor to your welcome emails, let Zapier do the heavy lifting with this integration between Google Forms and Gmail. Whenever a new response is received on Google Forms, we'll automatically prepare a draft email on Gmail for you, containing your template content and any form responses you need.

From there you're free to check everything and send it off as is, or add your own additional thoughts to make sure your message hits all the right marks!

Note: To use this integration you'll need a live form that's set up to collect responses in a spreadsheet.

How this Google Forms-Gmail integration works
