In this article, we will show you how to create a time slot sign-up in Google Forms by using a choice limit add-on. Simply follow the steps below to efficiently organize appointments and meetings.
While Google Forms does not have a built-in feature to limit the number of selections for each time slot, the "Choice Limit, Choice Limiter, Choice Eliminator 123" add-on serves as an effective solution. Here's how to install and set it up:
Initiate by clicking on the "+ Blank" option to create a new Google Form for time slot sign-ups.
Assign the title "Time Slot Sign Up" at the top of the form for clarity and purpose.
Find and click on the three vertical dots menu in the top right corner of your Google Form screen.
Select "Get add-ons" from the drop-down menu to access the G Suite Marketplace for additional tools.
Type "Choice Limit" in the search bar and press Enter. Click on the "Choice Limit, Choice Limiter, Choice Eliminator 123" add-on .
Click the "Install" button to add this extension to your Google Forms, allowing you to limit the selection of time slots.
Create questions to collect personal details like the participant's name and email for follow-ups.
Add a new multiple choice question and title it "Select a Time Slot". This will let users choose their preferred time slot from the options.
List the available time slots (e.g., 10:00 AM, 11:00 AM, etc.) under your multiple-choice question.
Navigate to the "Add-ons" menu, select "Choice Limit, Choice Limiter, Choice Eliminator 123", and configure the add-on to limit time slot selections.
Navigate to "Settings", then go to the "Responses" tab. Here, you'll find options including "Limit to 1 response", which you should check to prevent multiple entries from the same user.
Toggle the "Required" switch for each question to ensure they must be answered before submission.
Click on "Settings" and navigate to the "Presentation" tab. Here, you'll see a 'Confirmation message'.
Click the edit link to change the default message to something personalized such as "Your time slot has been successfully booked!"
Preview your form and submit a test response to ensure all settings work as expected.
Click on the "Send" button and choose your preferred method to share the form link with others.
Here’s how to view responses to your time slot sign up in the Google Forms interface:

This section provides a visual overview of the data through charts and summaries, giving you a quick glance at the selected time slots.
Switch to the "Individual" tab within the "Responses" section to meticulously review each participant's submitted responses one by one.

In the "Responses" tab of your Google Form, click on "Link to Sheets" to transition to a spreadsheet view of the collected data.
