I have this situation:

A group of people must vote using Google Forms. Their voting choices must be anonymous. But, they don't have gmail accounts and we would like to collect who has voted and who hasn't.

As I can see, if I add a question where they fill their name, that makes their personal choice connected to their name in the data.

But is there a way to make that "name question" separate. Maybe making two forms with separate data collection but connecting them in one form (with maybe two pages) so it is more convenient to users?


How to separate data collected from one question so it isn't linked to other question? Can two forms be merged together for answering but separated in data view?

  • The fact that they can fill in a fake name is irrelevant to the question, I assume? Otherwise all bets are off.. – user55949 May 24 '19 at 12:16
  • @JanDoggen: It is irrelevant. Question is only how to make google form where data from one question is saved separately from others and can't be linked – Meow May 24 '19 at 16:37
  • To the reader: anonymizing data is important to preserve privacy, but sensitive data may still be needed, for example to contact the winner of a prize for participating. – ahorn May 26 '19 at 14:45
