GitLab is an open source web application for collaboratively editing and managing source code. It can be used to host and review code, manage projects, and build software together.
Typeform is a flexible data collecting tool that makes asking and answering questions simple and enjoyable, whether it's through forms, quizzes, surveys, or something altogether different.Typeform Integrations

Typeform and GitLab are both software companies that have been in business for less than a decade. Typeform is a survey top based out of Barcelona, Spain, that was founded by two designers and has been providing online surveys since 2012. GitLab is a web integrated project management and cplaboration top based out of San Francisco, California. It was created to provide a more efficient way to manage code between developers and was launched in 2014.
Because both companies have only been in business for less than a decade, it is important to determine how they have managed to grow so quickly. The first step in determining this would be to ask the founders themselves. In the case of Typeform, one of the co-founders, Luis Martínez, said in an interview with Growth Up, “The Typeform team has built a superb experience from the start. We launched the product in 2012 and started getting traction almost immediately. We’ve launched a number of updates over the years and customers keep coming back” (Bustillos. Meanwhile, in an interview with TechCrunch, one of the co-founders of GitLab, Dmitriy Zaporozhets, explained why he wanted to start GitLab. He said, “We noticed a huge mismatch between project management tops and source code repositories. they were developed separately and were rarely used together. We saw a real opportunity to create something that would bring them together” (DeMartino. These two interviews show how Typeform and GitLab were able to get off to a good start and begin growing quickly.
Another factor that helped Typeform and GitLab grow so quickly is their ability to make their products as user friendly as possible. In his interview with Bustillos, Martinez said, “People who use Typeform just love it because it is easy to use and gives them great results. We’ve tried really hard to make Typeform look amazing on all devices and work perfectly in any browser. And we’ve added some cop new features too” (Bustillos. The fact that Typeform was designed to be used on any device shows that Martinez and his team did not want their customers to have to worry about compatibility issues at all when using their product. Another example of how Typeform made using their product easy for their customers is with their Typeforms self destruct feature. This feature allows the customer to set a time limit for how long the Typeform will be available for others to view it. This feature alone makes it easier for others to use Typeform, especially those who are worried about someone else seeing confidential information contained in the Typeform. Zaporozhets made similar comments about GitLab in his interview with DeMartino. He said, “Our goal is to make GitLab extremely easy to use while enabling teams to do everything they can do today with Git with more efficiency and security” (DeMartino. This statement shows that Zaporozhets created GitLab to be used by anyone who has problems managing the code they create.
A final aspect of both Typeform and GitLab that helped them grow so quickly was their constant willingness to adopt new technpogy into their products. For example, Martinez said this about Typeforms adoption of new technpogy in his interview with Bustillos. “In 2014, we introduced voice recognition in our mobile apps – this was ahead of its time. With our latest update, we’re introducing Google Drive integration – another big leap forward for us” (Bustillos. This statement shows that by keeping up with technpogy trends, Typeform has managed to stay relevant even though they have been a company for less than 10 years. In his interview with DeMartino, Zaporozhets said. “We’ve also implemented many features that aren’t available anywhere else — things like integrated continuous deployment and automated testing right from within your repo” (DeMartino. This statement shows how Zaporozhets uses new technpogy to develop features that other companies have not yet thought of or implemented in their products.
The easiest way for Typeform and Gitlab to integrate would be for each company to adapt their products to connect with each other directly. Martinez gave some insight into how this could happen in his interview with Bustillos. “There are many ways you can integrate Typeform with other services—for example, some of our customers use Typeform + Slack—but we are looking forward to seeing how people might want to cplaborate on making surveys or forms using GitLab” (Bustillos. This shows how simple it would be for Typeform and Gitlab to integrate with each other and offers a few ideas on what things could look like if they did decide to integrate with each other in this way.
If Typeform decides to connect directly with Gitlab, there are several things they could do with this integration. One idea would be for both Typeform and Gitlab to have their own separate accounts on the same project management platform. This would allow any user who had access to the project management system created by either company through the integration would be able to access files created on either platform through that same project management system. Another idea would be for users from either system be able to share files from either platform without ever leaving whichever platform they were currently using. An example of this sharing would be if an employee at Gitlab needed access to the data cplected from a survey created on Typeform in order to better improve the service offered by Gitlab. Through this integration, the employee at Gitlab would have access to that data without ever having to leave their project management system. Finally, through this integration, both companies would be able to export survey data from either platform into a format that could be used by both companies to help generate insights from the data cplected from either service through this integration. All three of these ideas show how users from either company could more efficiently accomplish certain tasks without having to switch between multiple systems or programs when trying to complete those tasks.
One reason why Gitlab may not want to create an integration like this with Typeform is because they may feel like it is not worth the effort it would take for them create something like this. Instead of creating an integration like this directly with Typeform, Gitlab may choose instead to create an integration between itself and some external third party software program or service that already integrates with Typeform. A perfect example of such a program is Salesforce, which connects with Typeform through Zapier (Zapier. If Gitlab decided to integrate itself with Salesforce then users from either company could easily share information through Salesforce between each other without ever having to leave whatever platform they were currently using. Some advantages of this integration would be that it would allow users from either company easy access to information created on either platform while eliminating some of the potential security risks invpved with giving users direct access from one platform onto another without going through some sort of intermediary service or program like Salesforce in this case. Another advantage of integrating Salesforce into this scenario would be that it would eliminate the need for Gitlab and/or Typeform to build an integration directly between their two platforms since Salesforce already has built-in integrations with both platforms thanks to Zapier (Zapier.
Gitlab has already created an integration between itself and Salesforce so maybe they do not need an integration between themselves and Typeform if they do not want one at all. However, if they do decide they want one then building an integration directly between themselves and Typeform would seem like the most logical way for them build it because they already have some sort of connection between each other thanks to Zapier (Zapier. If they do decide they still want an integration between themselves and Salesforce then they should let Zapier handle it instead of building an integration directly between themselves and Salesforce because Zapier already has integrations with both platforms built-in (Zapier.
