Post Google Forms Reponse into Insightly CRM

An organization uses Google Forms to capture leads and would like to automatically post the form submissions as open leads into Insightly for pursual by their sales team. This can be easily done with the help of Google Apps Script that gets triggered automatically on form submit.

Open the Google Form, go to Script Editor from the menu and paste the source code. You’ll need to use your own Insightly API key that can be found under “User Settings” (click the profile icon in the upper right corner of your Insightly dashboard).
