How to See Google Forms You Submitted

If you've submitted a Google Form and want to view your responses, there are a few ways you can go about it. However, it's crucial to remember that the ability to view your submitted responses largely depends on the settings the form creator has chosen. 

Here are some steps you can take to check the Google Forms you submitted:

Option 1: Through Email

1. Go to Your Email

Log in to the email account you provided when filling out the Google Form.

2. Check Your Inbox

Once you've logged in, go to your inbox and look for a new email from Google Forms. The subject of the email might be related to the form's title or something like "Your response to [Form Name]."

If you don't see the confirmation email in your inbox, navigate to your spam or junk folder. Sometimes, emails from online forms might be automatically categorized as spam.

3. View Your Responses

Open the email, and you should see a copy of the responses you submitted. If there are links or attachments in the email, ensure they are genuinely from Google Forms and not phishing attempts.

4. Save or Archive the Email

If you want to keep a record of your responses, consider saving, archiving, or moving the email to a specific folder for easy access in the future.

Option 2: Through the Confirmation Page

After you submit a Google Form, you'll usually see a confirmation page. By default, this page may contain a message like "Your response has been recorded" or something similar.

1. Look for the Edit Link

On this confirmation page, if the form creator has enabled the option, there might be a link or button that says "Edit your response" or a similar message.

2. Click the “Edit Your Response” Link

By clicking on this link, you'll be redirected back to the form with your previously entered responses pre-filled. You can now view or edit any of the responses.

3. Save the Edit Link (URL)

If you anticipate needing to view or edit your responses in the future, it's a good idea to bookmark this link or save it somewhere safe. This link is unique to your set of responses.

4. Submit Changes (If Any) by Clicking on “Submit”

After viewing or editing your responses, make sure to submit the form again to save any changes you've made.

Remember, the availability of any of these features largely depends on the settings chosen by the form's creator. If the creator did not enable certain features, you might not be able to view or edit your responses after submission.

Tip: In the future, if you want to keep track of responses you've given on Google Forms, consider taking screenshots for your records.
