I need to make a Google Doc Form, in which the users need to upload a Word file. Is it possible to do so using Google Docs form? If yes, then how?

Google Forms does not allow respondents to upload files. There are some ways around this though:

  1. Have them upload the file directly to your Drive account. See instructions here.
  2. Use JotForm, which has integration with Drive.

I also liked James Pearson's tech cogitation blog entry "Folders as a workaround for Google form attachments" Using his script once a form is submitted a new folder is created and a link to this folder is sent via email to the person who submitted the form.

  • This solution could work but it requires that the form respondent has a Google account and enough free space to be able to upload the files to be submitted. Sep 9, 2016 at 16:52

G Suite users could add an upload question type to Google Forms.

From the official help article, Edit your form:

Upload files to a form

If you use Google apps through work or school, respondents can upload files as a response to a question. Uploaded files will take up Google Drive storage for the survey owner. Learn how to clear Google Drive space and increase storage.

  1. Open a form in Google Forms.
  2. Click Add Add.
  3. Next to the question title, click the Down arrow Down Arrow.
  4. Click File Upload.
  5. Click Continue.

After you create your question, you can:

  • Adjust the maximum file size.
  • Change the file type.
