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?

Thanks Steve. I need to really explore this in depth. I want to add a 'help wanted' form to my website. Long time fan since your TV days. #TheCalgaryPainter
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!)

Anyway to embed a payment option (Paypal, STRIPE etc) at the end of a Google form before the submit button?
Thanks for the reply !

Not that I know of, but you can embed a google form in a webpage that has the payment system on it.
Jim Mendoza (3 months ago)
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.....

Steve, 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 Kind Regards Dick +27837453328 [email protected]
Wbbc Music (16 days ago)
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.
dottotech (3 months ago)
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!

I think so, Ask for the email address in the sharing panel. I bet that doe the trick..

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 🤗 🌄.

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?
The Bear Den Photography (3 months ago)
Thanks Steve. I'll have a look at trying that. And yes, the Google Forums are a good resource. I've used them in the past and find them a real help.
dottotech (3 months ago)
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! https://productforums.google.com/forum/

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?
dottotech (3 months ago)
I would not be surprised if an option does not come into the marketplace to connect Sheets to a relational DB, but I am not sure how it would work. Might be an opportunity.
