In this article, we explain everything you need to know about Google Forms sections. We provide simple step-by-step instructions on how to add, move, and merge them easily. Simply follow the steps below!
Look for the toolbar on the right side of your form. Click on the icon that looks like two stacked rectangles.
After you click the "Add Section" button, a new section will be created. You can give this section a title and a description by clicking on it. This helps in organizing the form and guiding your respondents.
Click on the three-dot icon next to the section's title and description.
After clicking the three-dot icon, select "Move section" from the menu.
A pop-up window will appear. Use the arrows next to the section name to change its position. Alternatively, you can also drag and drop the sections using the six-dot icon on the left. After selecting the new position, click on the "Save" button to confirm.
Click on the section you wish to merge with the one above it.
Click on the three-dot icon (⋮) or "More" button of the section. From the options that appear, select "Merge with above."
Each section is displayed on a separate page by default, and there is no built-in feature to display multiple sections on the same page.
If you want all questions to appear on the same page, the only way to achieve this is by not using multiple sections. Instead, you can add all your questions to a single section. However, this approach might make the form lengthy and potentially overwhelming for respondents if there are many questions.
For more complex forms, using multiple sections helps in breaking down the information and making the form more user-friendly.
