I'm creating a Google Form with a csv output. How can I set the field names so that afterwards I can have a csv with computer friendly, unique header names?

Since I suppose this feature doesn't come built in in google forms, is there a add-on which would provide such functionality (or a tutorial on how to code it myself with app scripts)?

The easiest way to do this one is just to put the form responses in a google sheet (there is a button for this on the responses tab on the forms app) and when the survey is done change the headers. You can then download the google sheet as a csv.

    My purpose is exactly not to involve any manual editing of the form output, I wanted to make it analyzable as soon people sent questions. – Bakaburg Feb 26 '17 at 11:44
