There are times when you need to share your Google Forms responses with others, like when you need to collaborate on a project or need approval on a form submission. You may be confused about how to do so; luckily, sharing your form responses with others is simple!

In this article, we’ll show you how to share your Google Forms responses with others in a few simple steps. We'll also explain how Form Publisher can be used to share your responses with others. This can be useful if you need to create a report or if you want to share your responses in a more visually appealing way.

How to share Google Forms responses on Google Sheets

Step 1: Open your Google Form

The first thing you need to do is open your Google Form. You can do this by going to Google Forms and selecting the form you want to share.

Step 2: Go to the Responses tab

Once you've opened your form, you’ll want to click on the Responses tab. This is the tab where you can reference every submission of your form. It can be found at the top of the page, next to the "Questions" and “Settings” tabs.

Step 3: Click the Google Sheets icon

In the Responses tab, you’ll see a green "Google Sheets" icon in the top right. Clicking on this will open a new window where you can select where your responses will be stored.

By default, they will be sent to a new Google Sheets document. To do this, simply click the "Create a new spreadsheet" option and name it. A new spreadsheet will be created and your responses will be added to it.

If you want to send them to a spreadsheet you’ve already created, click on the "Select existing spreadsheet" option and choose the spreadsheet you want to use. A new tab will be added to it.

Step 4: Click “Share” in your Google Sheet

Once your responses have been added to a spreadsheet, you can then share them with others. To do this, click on the "Share" button in the top-right corner of your Google Sheets.

Step 5: Add who you want to share responses with

In the "Share with others" box, you can add people you want to share your responses with by entering their email addresses into the "Add People and groups" field. You can enter as many email addresses as you like, but keep in mind that anyone with the link will be able to view your responses.

There are two options for collaborators on Google Sheets: viewer and editor. Unless you want to give them editing privileges, it’s best to keep the default setting of viewer, especially if it’s an outside associate. This prevents anyone from accidentally or deliberately changing response data.

There is also a message box where you can add a personal message to the people you are sharing your responses with. This is optional, but it can be a nice touch if you want to say something specific to the people you are sharing with.

Step 6: Click “Send”

When you're done, simply click on the "Send" button and your responses will be shared with the people you specified. They will receive an email notification letting them know that you have shared your responses with them.

And that's all there is to it! Sharing your Google Forms responses with others is a quick and easy process. By following the steps above, you can ensure that your responses are seen by the people you want to see them, without giving them access to your account.

So, let's talk about how Form Publisher can be used to share your responses in a more visually appealing way.
