Embed your videoask in a typeform

Ever wondered how you can add video questions to a typeform and collect responses to them? Wonder no more, just start by embedding videoasks into your typeform. Read on to find out how.

By embedding a videoask into a typeform, you can let people answer video questions while filling out your typeform. The responses to the videoasks will show up in the responses section of the Videoask account.

Here’s an example of a typeform with embedded videoasks:

Here’s how you can create a typeform just like the one above:

1. Create a typeform. If you’re not familiar with the tool yet, you can find an intro here.

2. Create the videoask or videoasks you want to embed into your typeform. Here’s an article that explains how.

Tips! You can also use other people’s videoasks like James did in the example above. Just make sure they’re ok with it :)

After creating your videoask, copy its share link

Use the Layout menu to change the position of the videoask. You'll only be able to use the inline or floating options:

Keep the following in mind when embedding videoasks in typeforms:

  • Typeform and videoask answers will be collected in separate accounts (i.e., you won't see videoask answers in your typeform's Results panel). Videoask answers are also submitted step-by-step, while the content of typeform answers is only submitted on completion.
  • Videoasks can't save contact information from other questions in the typeform, so respondents may have to enter their contact details twice.
  • Respondents will have to send videoask answers before continuing with the typeform, so they may see more than one Submit or Continue button on the same page. 

As an alternate option, you can use Redirect on completion or a redirect link in an Ending to send your respondents to a videoask after they finish the typeform. While typeform and videoask answers will still be collected separately, you can set up this flow so that respondents only have to enter their contact information once - here's how
