How to Autofill Google Forms
Auto-filling Google Forms can be achieved through different methods, each with varying levels of complexity and practicality depending on what exactly you're trying to do. Here are some methods:
Method 1: Google Forms Prefill Feature
Google Forms itself has a feature that allows form creators to prefill certain fields and then send a unique link with this pre-filled information to respondents. Here’s how to do it:
1. Access More Options for Your Form
Click on the three dots in the upper-right corner of the form editor.
2. Select "Get Pre-filled Link"
In the drop-down menu, choose "Get pre-filled link."
3. Fill in the Desired Answers
Enter the answers you want to be prefilled in the form.
4. Generate the Pre-filled Link
Click the "Get Link" button at the bottom of the form.
5. Copy the Pre-filled Link
A new pop-up should appear at the bottom-left corner of your screen with the pre-filled link. Copy it.
6. Share the Pre-filled Link
Send this link to your intended respondents. When they open it, the specified fields will already be filled out.
Remember that each pre-filled link will only contain the information you entered when creating it. If you need to prefill different information for different respondents, you will need to repeat this process for each unique set of pre-filled data.
Method 2: Browser Autofill Feature
There are browser extensions available for browsers like Chrome, Microsoft Edge, or Firefox that should store form data and automatically fill in forms for you. These are generally used for forms you fill out regularly with the same information (such as personal contact details).
