Just copy paste the following in your Google forms. The form dialog automatically creates new items when the pasted text contains linebreaks. The following list is posted so that the future readers do not need to remove the numbers from the list provided by listofcountriesoftheworld.com. Editor's note: the list below may go out of date as countries are ...

Short answer The link points to a Q&A that has two answers but non-of them looks to me to be appropiate. I.E. the code of one of answers is incomplete and both of them send emails, so the adoption is too complex to be used as a starting point. Below is a script that is easier to adopt. Instructions Create a test form and note the form ID (between ../...

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: ...

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/>

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'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 warning ...

Yes, you can, by using the Go to page based on answer feature. This implies that you have to divide your form into pages, which is easy to do. Given you have already created your form with three questions: Do you like cats? Which kind of cat do you like most? Why do you dislike cats? Create a page for each section of your form: Click the Add item button ...

The answer that this wasn't possible by @ruben was true until very recently. This is now possible on the New Google Forms. (Google announcement on the 10th of February 2016). The New Google Forms allows you to delete responses from within a Google Form. Delete ALL of the responses: Delete individual responses: To delete individual responses you click on ...

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 > ...

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.

Google doesn't currently support this feature - there is no way to save a form and have a user return to it later without submitting it. That does raise an interesting point, though. You can have the user submit the survey and edit their responses later. Instead of forcing the user to page through the rest of the survey to get to the submit button, just add ...

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 ...

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 = ...


7

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 ...

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 ...

In my case even after disabling 'Limit to 1 Response' I was not able to access the form publically and it was asking users to login. Later I found that I had chosen 'File Upload' from few questions in that form, which were forcing my users to login to access the form. I deleted those 'File Upload' question from the form and then my users were able to access ...

It is possible. You should use the Multiple choice grid and turn "Require one response per row" on. Please have a look at the attached images. Editing the form: Viewing the form:

Please note: Under Settings --> Presentation one can set the Confirmation message that will only be shown on the browser screen upon submission. What you ask for is that: ... the Google Form will automatically send an e-mail ... You will find that there is a number of ways to make this possible. Edit Begin (By now Google has integrated an ...

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'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.

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

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 ...

Here is the solution that I was able to use to resolve a similar need to import historical data as actual form responses. the code first opens the form I created, and the spreadsheet with the historical data in the array named "values". The for loop cycles through each line of the spreadsheet, populating each item of the form, and then submitting each ...

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 ...

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

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 ...

Finally...they now support printing it out. https://plus.google.com/u/0/+GoogleDrive/posts/ZSWMyZKC22t
