  1. Integrate Google Sheets
  2. Share your document

1. Integrate Google Sheets

Click on the Extra Options tab and scroll down to Integrations. Click Google Sheets.

  1. Enabled - make sure to toggle this button on to enable the feature.
  2. Spreadsheet ID - copy the spreadsheet ID, which you'll find in the URL of your spreadsheet. Copy only the values between the "/d/" and the "/edit".
  3. Sheet Name - copy the name of the sheet - you'll find the name in the tab at the bottom of the spreadsheet.
  4. Create - click Create to test the connection and create the header row for your questionnaire.

If your sheets tab has a name that may be also a column, the responses are pushed to this column. ÔĽŅA solution could be to set the range value with sheet name and cell notation: "Survey SP22!A1", where Survey SP is the name and A1 the cell notation.


When you use Save per question feature, every answer is saved as a partial response, but it is not pushed to your google sheet immediately. If after 15 minutes the respondent has not returned to the survey to continue answering questions, the partial response will be pushed to your google sheet. 

However, it’s possible to have duplicate records when a respondent takes 15 minutes to answer a question, which is why the same response can be pushed to Google Sheets twice.

2. Share your document

Make sure to share your document with the user It’s a very important step in this process.
