In this article, we will show you how to export responses from Google Forms to Docs in just a few clicks. Simply follow the steps below!
As of writing this article, Google Forms does not allow you to export or sync responses straight into Google Docs. Google Forms is designed to work seamlessly with Google Sheets, where all responses are collected and can be viewed in real-time.
Here's how to transfer your Google Forms responses from Google Sheets to Google Docs:
Go to the Responses tab in your form and click on the green Sheets icon to link the form to a new or existing Google Sheets file. This is where your form responses will be collected.
Navigate to the linked Google Sheet to view all the responses that have been collected from your Google Form.
In your Google Sheets, click and drag to highlight the cells that contain the responses you want to transfer, then copy them using the right-click context menu or with Ctrl + C (or Cmd + C on Mac). You can also select everything using Ctrl + A (or Cmd + A on Mac) and copy.
Go to Google Docs and open the document where you want to insert the form responses. This can be a new document or an existing one.
Click in the document where you want the responses to appear and paste them using the right-click context menu or with Ctrl + V (or Cmd + V on Mac). Choose between "Link to Spreadsheet" or "Paste unlinked," depending on your preference. The responses will paste into your document in a table format.
Adjust the formatting of the pasted table and text to match the style and layout requirements of your document. This may include resizing columns, changing text fonts, or altering colors.
If you don't want to manually copy and paste data from Google Forms to Google Doc, you can use third-party add-ons or services such as Zapier or Portant Workflow.
