How to Make Google Forms Public
To make Google Forms public, simply follow the process below.
1. Open the Form and Navigate to 'Settings'
Open the form you want to make public. Once open, click on the "Settings" tab. This tab contains options to manage response collection.
2. Access the 'Responses' Section
Within the "Settings" tab, locate and select the "Responses" section. This section contains settings that dictate who can respond to your form.
3. Disable 'Limit to 1 response
Ensure that the "Limit to 1 response" option is turned off. When activated, this option requires users to sign in which limits the form to private access. Deactivating it ensures that anyone can access your form without needing to sign in.
4. Disable 'Collect Email Addresses'
Still in the "Responses" section, find and turn off the "Collect email addresses" option. This ensures anyone can fill out your form without having to provide an email address.
5. Share Your Form Using the 'Send' Button
Now that your form is set for public access, click the "Send" button. A pop-up window will appear showing options to share your form via email, a direct link (with options to shorten the URL or generate a QR code), or by embedding it into a webpage.

2. Select 'Add Collaborators'
In the dropdown menu that appears after clicking "More," select "Add Collaborators." This will open a new window where you can add collaborators.
3. Input Email Addresses and Set Permissions
In the "Add Collaborators" window, enter the email addresses of the individuals you want to grant editing access to. Ensure that the permission is set to "Editor," allowing them to make changes to the form.
