In this article, we will show you how to set up the Google Forms confirmation message feature and how to edit the thank you page in Google Forms.
Follow the process below to personalize the experience for your Google Forms respondents by setting up a custom confirmation message that they'll see on the 'Thank You' page after submitting their responses.
Find and click on the 'Settings' option at the top middle of the Google Form editor. This action opens the form's settings menu where you can modify various aspects of your form.
In the settings menu, locate and select the 'Presentation' tab. This tab allows you to alter the visual elements of your form, including the confirmation message that appears after submission.
Scroll to the 'Confirmation message' field within the 'Presentation' tab. This is where you input the message that will be shown on the ‘thank you page’ after respondents submit the form. It could be a note of thanks, further instructions, or any other information relevant to the respondents.
After typing your confirmation message, make sure to save your changes.
The 'Save' button, usually found at the bottom of the settings menu, will update your form with the new message.
To confirm your new confirmation message is showing correctly, go to preview mode and test the form by submitting a response.
After submission, you'll be directed to the 'Thank You' page where your custom confirmation message should be visible. If it's not appearing as expected, you may need to revisit the settings to make necessary adjustments.
We hope that you now have a better understanding of how to set up the Google Forms confirmation message feature.
