HINT: Collecting a respondents email can be very useful with other spreadsheet add-ons. If you are using the form outside your organization, consider using a text question (see below) and requiring it to be a valid email address in "advanced settings."

  • Choose from a list — respondents select one option from a dropdown menu
  • Scale — respondents rank something along a scale of numbers (e.g., from 1 to 5)

  • Advanced features allow you require users to format answers in a determined way. (ex: email address, number format, require a min/max selections)
HINT: If you are going to use one of the questions to sort one of the columns, control the information a respondent can enter as much as possible. (multiple choice or choose from a list.)

Confirmation Page and Sharing

The confirmation page is what a respondent will see once they submit the form.

The text box allows you to create a custom response.

The checkboxes allow respondents to:

  • Immediately submit another response. (helpful with repeated form submissions)
  • See all responses. It will direct them to the Google Sheet. (USE WITH CAUTION)
  • Allow users to edit the response they just submitted. (recommended)

HINT: Use the response text box to give respondents a link or email address that is hyperlinked. You just type in the address, and it will hyperlink in the confirmation page.
