Share Google Form Responses and Attachments

Environment

Issue

How can I share Google Form responses and uploaded attachments with other people?

Resolution

  • Google Form responses and attachments (e.g., file uploads) are available only to the owner and collaborators by default
  • Both the owner and collaborators will have the ability to view and delete these form responses
  • The form responses can be viewed from the "Responses" tab for the Google Form or from the associated Google Sheet used to capture the responses
  • Similarly, the form attachments can be viewed from the "Responses" tab or from the associated Google Drive folder for storing the files uploaded by the respondents
    • The form attachments are also linked in the Google Sheet used for responses; however, they can only be accessed if the Google Drive folder is shared as well
  • If someone should only be able to view the responses, then it will be best to share the associated Google Sheet and/or Google Drive folder for the Google Form per the instructions provided below. Please note that only the Owner or Collaborators with sharing permissions can perform these steps
