Thanks Steve - good video. I have a question please ... any way that you can create multiple forms/questions on a form by importing data from say a spreadsheet maybe? I have to make a load of these and I already have the source info in spreadsheet form. Thanks!
I got some problems using the Google Form these days. I made a Google Form a month ago for students to fill in. It worked perfectly fine. Then I used 'Make a copy" function to create a new form . However, my students couldn't open the form on their iPads. Then I tried it on PC. It worked. Is the problem related to tablets or the way I set up the form?
I have a question regarding using Google forms because I have tried it once and I faced a problem after entering the data. The problems I faced and the question I want to refer from you as follow.................... 1. Can I edit the data which I have already entered and saved in the Google forms.
2. As a team when we entered the data some of us used entering the number as follow(eg:- 1, 01, 1., 01.) Google forms shows these as separate data. Please let any one help me to edit this data
Hi Steve or anyone else, (BTW good video Steve). I using the form to do a survey and I want to send users to a different URLs after completing the survey depending on their answers. Will Google Forms let me do it ?
Hi Technical expert, as you are aware of Google form has single page form option, can we have booklet form option, so that on left side we paste a passage and on right side we give question to reply it. In addition i need 3 tabs as i have 3 section. can you help me in doing so.
Hi all, i could not publish my form on web. I mean after i share the link to someone else and he clicks on the link, he comes the form page but it asks to login! What if he does not have a gmail account? And i watched the videos and read the documents about settings or so on but nothing changed. My account is an individual gmail account. Thanks for your response.
Hi! We use Google Forms to collect info from market research interviews...but we experienced a "limit" on the words that can be entered in a Paragraph type of question. Do you know if this limitation still exists? Because when an interviewee is talking, and we're typing along all of their valuable feedback into the Paragraph answer area...we don't want to be cut off at a limit. Thanks for your valuable knowledge on this!
I was wondering if this will work with IOS as I am really trying to move my workflow to my iPad Pro (which is so awesome for most everything I do). I didn’t see a way to do it by looking at the google drive app but then I googled it in Safari and got this webpage that explains in detail how to do it in IOS (now I’m doing the happy dance!) Thank you Steve & Google: https://support.google.com/docs/answer/6281888?co=GENIE.Platform%3DiOS&hl=en
Nicely done Steve. A bit of tech-nerd TMI here but the definitive source for the submitted form data is actually in the Google Forms document itself. A *copy* is placed in the specified Google Sheets doc. Should the user edit the copy of the collected data in the Google Sheets file, they won't see a change when they look at it from the Google Forms "Responses" section.
When the user submits the form, if the option is set to allow the user to *edit* their response, the edit URL presented is a direct **public** link back to that GForm's response. Editing the GForm entry and re-submitting *will* then update the GSheets file also. Note that 3rd party add-ons for GSheets such as >>*formMule*<< does give the GSheets editor the option of storing the Edit-URL to each submitted response in the GSheets file.
Sorry for too much propeller spinning.....
1. I want to use the google form in reverse
2. I listened to your interesting Youtube video about Google Forms,
3. My question: how can I import google sheet info to Google forms/
4. The reason for the request is that I have a list of contacts in a google sheet
5. I need to update the sheet by the different individuals and companies themselve, through returning a completed google form
6. and let them populate the forms and forward it back to me as the actual update,
7. This should happen without many user interaction on my side, other than the client update itself.
8. This would imply their consent to the practice by completing and returning of the form.
9. What should I do to get an reply from you or your team about this request?
10. If possible please forward confirmation receipt and understandin
Dick, you could create the form matching the layout of the contact info you already have in a google sheet. Create the google sheet to go with your form. Then, copy your contact info into the new google sheet. You could then separate out by company/contact name with a new tab by using a google sheet add-on. When a contact changes their info using your form it would have its new timestamp so you would know that it is the latest contact info. You could delete out the previous contact info by row. It's not totally automated but would only require minimum upkeep. You could have a check box on the form for consent which would only allow them to proceed if they checked it first. It's like an "if-then" option. For example, you can set up your questions to lead to another question if answered a certain way. Hope this helps.
Dick, I am sure you can do this but I am not sure the exact steps yo need to take. I would start by creating a sample form, and when you share it you will see the option to collect the information to a sheet.
From there you will have to figure out the exact process to populate your sheet.
Hi Steve ^_^ You are proving to be very popular in my classroom in New Zealand! We love watching your videos. I have a question from a teacher point of view... Is there any possible way to get the link for one particular student response on a quiz/assessment form setup? For example, if I were getting an assessment moderated and wanted the moderator to be able to view only one student response, is that possible? Thanks so much!
Hi Steve, how the fuck are you doing this fine day?
To tell you friendly, never missed the option of doing forms. Maybe its interesting for sum marketing dudes but for everyone else not very interesting a form creator.
Hi Steve :-)
It probably will seem strange to you, but I do not have a (computer/PC/Desk Top), nor do I know how to use one. (My husband, and the one Son that still lives here, both have one. My Son actually has built some for his friends).
Anyway, I only have a phone, and a Tablet....The Phone is Android, the Tablet is iOS.
I do have 20+ Google Apps on my Apple tablet, which somehow sync with my phone. Or vice versa ?
Unfortunately, when I watch any tutorials that require, a computer, or are demonstrated via a computer, I am totally lost !
Is there any way I could just receive notifications which apply to only phones or tablets ?
OR....of course I can simply wait for the tutorials that will work for me !🙄
I'll be happy either way 🙂
Just thought I'd ask. 😏
Sincerely, JaneLee 🧓 ^_^
A new subscriber as of yesterday ! 😊
Have a Great Wednesday 🤗 🌄.
Hi Steve, thanks for the video. I just clicked the link to submit my choice, but was curious if there is a way to publish the result for those who submit the answers and for those who do not answer but want to know the result? Thanks a lot.
Hey Steve, great topic and presentation. I've known about Google Forms for several years and have toyed with the concept, but never really built anything of consequence. Forms is a great little app and can be very useful.
I have Google Sheet Workbook consisting of 1850+ lines, 22 columns, and about 20 or so sheets that I've been populating for about a year and a half and would love to do the work thru a form. Of course I don't want to rebuild the sheet from scratch, that would be very counter productive. My other option would be to convert the Workbook to a database of some sort like MS Access, which I have very minimal experience with, and my time is running short for another huge learning curve. I'm pretty sure Google hasn't yet released a database application for use with Google Apps. If it has and would work in my case, I stand corrected and would love to hear about it.
My question is, can a form be 'reverse engineered' from an existing spreadsheet?
You can create a form and assign the results to a existing Sheet,, I am not sure how that would work for you but it is worth checking out.
Also you can always ask for help here, I use it a lot!
Good overview of Forms. It is really a forms based, flat file database. I grew up in work with Lotus Notes, SQL, Ashton Tate's dBase (I worked there during their last year), Lotus Approach and Microsoft Access. Any comments about building a relational database for more complex data?
I use several Google Forms at work for the finance, marketing, and vigilance departments. We’ve recently added authorisation via different multi-level authenticators (people), it even keeps the sender up to date on the status of their request.
Nice job Steve! If someone sends me a Google form to fill out, what information (if any) does Google learn about ME? If I selected Harpo, could I start to see ads for Marx Brothers movies that star Harpo! 🤔
The problem is not that Facebook and Google are the only advertising platforms. The problem is that they are considered mainstream media and without these two, the trend of cryptocurrencies gaining legitimacy is delayed. That is right, I said delayed not blocked or prevented.
The World Has Changed.
Five years ago, when bitcoin was unknown to most people, this might have been a fatal move. Today is a different story. I recently traveled to a remote mountain town in the interior of Mexico. Everyone I met had heard about Bitcoin and eyes lit up with excitement when I ask if I could pay for lunch with bitcoin.
Today are dozens of websites dedicated to cryptocurrencies, either holding them, exchanging them or just writing about them. Probably the most effective advertising remains on Google, it is called Google Search and it is free.
If someone wants to learn about owning bitcoin or any other currency, there is a ton of educational information.

Not All Regulation Is Inherently Bad.
If we examine the full spectrum of regulation to this point on a global scale there is one common target most everywhere. That is the practice of exchanges. So far there has been little or not regulation, threatened or enacted, to protect investors from loss of funds due to security breaches.
Capitulation Is A Good Sign.
