Change that source URL to read http://spreadsheets.google.com/embeddedform?key=...KEYcode...&hl=fr. Adding &hl=fr is all it takes to change the language to French. BTW: this trick is overruled by the Settings of Google Docs of the client using your form. So problably it seems not to work on your own computer if you are logged in on Google Docs.

You need to provide the survey takers with the direct URL to the form - don't share it via Google Docs. To get the URL you need to: Open the form in question From the Form menu select Edit form This displays your form in edit mode and the bottom of the form the link is displayed: By sharing out the form as you did previously, you are allowing them ...

You can do this by adding a script trigger. Supposing your current Form has two columns Timestamp and the answer to one question. So you currently have columns A and B populating with data. Lets assume you want column C to have you auto increment number. You need to first go to Tools > Script Editor In the Script Editor window enter the following script: ...

There are different ways you can view a document made in Google Apps docs.google.com/spreadsheet/pub docs.google.com/a/domain.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=FORMID docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=FORMID Embed on domain of application Where 2 redirects to 3. Option 1 is most likely what you want users to see. Option 1 is found via File > ...

Building on both previous answers (from Barry and Danny): Assuming the ID column is column A. Pick a "Next ID" cell and set it to the following formula (assuming it is in "P1"): =MAX(A:A)+1 Create script using the script editor under the "Tools" menu, and paste in the following: function onFormSubmit(e) { // Get the active sheet var sheet = ...

Further to the excellent answer by Barry, if you want to be able to remove rows, and still keep a unique ID you can have a static cell that maintains a count. You can then use this number and increment it on every new entry to the table. So the modification would be to keep a number somewhere on your spreadsheet ('M1' in the code below) and modify the code ...

You have to format the column in spreadsheet mode before any data is entered. Here we have a form about waffles. The cells have been formatted before sending it to the recipients. And here is the result after a user fills out the result.

If you have Google Docs account then you also have access to Google sites. Create a Google Sites page and embed your form on it, then set the page permissions to private and enter those email addresses for the people you want to give access to. If they have a Google account, they can log in under their username. If not, they'll have to create an account ...

There isn't a way to password a protect a form within Google Docs at the moment.

I've just adapted some trick which is very simple by using Validation option in Text field to check the password which you set it before give it away. For example. Set a field with user name let them choose from the list you add their name in advance let connect those name the pagebreak which is on their name on the page let set a text field and add the ...

I agree 100% with the OP that, while design specs are slightly different for print versus paper forms, they certainly are translatable. I was frustrated with the same problem, so I created a small web app called Google Paper Forms that will do exactly what you are looking to do: translate your Google Form to a printable, paper-ready PDF file. It ...

You can do easily from your Internet Browser Go to File menu then choose Print try it using the following example : https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dFBSU1ZiYzZ6MUpGeE90X0lGTl8xQXc6MA Check the below images Chrome IE

Here's how. Add the host (eg. www) and domain name (eg. google.com) without the protocol or an html anchor. In other words: Works www.google.com gmail.google.com Will not work google.com http://google.com <a href="http://www.google.com/">google<a/>

I only seem to have some bad news for you. It is not possible to customize Google Docs Forms in another way than using the provided themes. (See Google employee AnaLikesLattes' answer) It is not possible to enforce one-submission-per-person but you could maybe use required fields asking for first/last name or email. (Google Docs Help discussion) I'm not ...

You can also put 3 - 5 instead of 3-5. It worked for me.

Change the language setting of your google docs to French (under settings). I had to do this for my German language form - it works!

In, for example, a Google Spreadsheet, you can use the File/Publish command. It lets you create a RSS feed for the spreadsheet.

Currently, the only place you can put hyperlinks in a Google form is in the second box from the top (aka the description box). Anywhere else and the URL wont be clickable. To add a URL to the discription box simply type the URL with or without the http://. You dont need to add any HTML markup. eg Typing google.com will result in google.com Its a feature ...

There is in fact a solution to this problem; however, you must disconnect the form from being hosted on Google's servers in order to accomplish this. The idea is that you copy the form HTML to your server. The form itself will continue to submit data to Google Spreadsheets, but you will have full control over the look and feel of the form. Be forewarned! ...

Saw this answer on a blog: First the document in question must be publicly accessible. Private documents cannot have an RSS feed. Click the SHARE button in the top right and share it with others as "Collaborators" and not just "Viewers". Next, click the link on the same page, toward the right that says "View RSS".

Google Spreadsheet Forms comes under Google Docs. The form must be shared either with the setting, Public on the Web - it will show up in Google Search results or Anyone who has the link, anyway you cannot find the e-mail address of the owner of the document. As that would be a great security loop-hole on the side of google, anyone will know what company is ...

I've been able to find a solution for my problem. Using =ARRAYFORMULA(Sheet1!A1:A) in the top of a column Google Docs will update the whole column, without the need for functions in each cell. Thus, deleted or inserted rows will not cause trouble anymore. I found this answer (by brettathds) at the Google Support forums.

Further to the above answers - This solution doesn't require an extra spreadsheet cell. You can use the inbuilt event handlers for submission of the form to get a unique id. Because the spreadsheet is just the destination for the form, deleting a row doesn't actually delete the response. With that in mind... EDIT: removed need for ID and dealt with date ...

The spreadsheet is not the actual repository of responses. There is a 'bucket' of responses that is connected to the form itself. The data presentation features use the responses connected to the form. You need to use a script to add the extra responses to the Form object. You won't be able to save the original dates with the old responses, as the ...

You'll need to create pages in your Google Form as well as relevant multiple choice questions to take you between these pages. For each page you set up, they will correspond with a multiple choice selection. Add a question type of multiple choice You will see "Go to page based on answer" appear as a checkbox next to it. Click that. The following ...

I would simply suggest that you use the Timestamp column to sort the rows from new to old (Z-A).

No, that is not possible in the standard Google Spreadsheet forms. If you're capable of a little programming, you could implement your very own form with the Google Apps Script GUI builder. The GUI builder has a file upload element.
