Overview

  • A free Google Forms add-on.
  • Edit form responses.
  • Cycle through form responses or enter a response index to choose a response to edit.
  • Basic search facility to search for particular responses to edit.
  • Fix respondent form input mistakes to correct your response charts/reports.
  • Share edit URL’s with collaborators or respondents.

Please see Permissions & Verification for details on the permissions this add-on requires. Note: the developer has NO access to your form questions or responses.

Editing a response is handled by the in-built Google form edit functionality, the add-on itself does not handle the editing. The Google form response editor shows the form exactly as it would for a form submission and the editor must follow the same flow of the form but can see and change the responses within the form.

The add-on makes no changes at all to response spreadsheets, however, Google automatically highlights edited responses within response spreadsheets with cell notes to indicate they have been edited. No response history is recorded when responses are edited, so original responses will be lost unless you take a copy of a response spreadsheet before editing a response.

Anyone with a response edit URL can edit the response so share the links carefully.

Supported Languages

The add-on user interface text has been automatically Google translated from English to all languages supported by the Google Translation API (at the time of publishing) and will automatically display in the language specified in your Google account locale setting (if supported). However, the automatic translations may not be correct.

Details / Instructions

Please note: Google made a change (sometime around December 2018) which means administrators can ONLY edit forms if the following form option is set: Respondents can: Edit after submit. I do not know why Google made this change but unfortunately I have no control over this. If you don’t want this option set all the time you could set it only while you are editing responses and then un-set it again.
 
Sidebar

Start the add-on in your Google Form to show the sidebar which allows you to cycle through the form responses (the < and > icons) or enter a response index to jump to that response. Click the Edit icon to edit the response or the Copy icon to copy the Edit URL to the clipboard.

Search

Click the Search icon in the sidebar to show the popup Search window. Here you can search for responses by response ID, the respondent Email (if your form is collecting email addresses), response Timestamp and the contents of a single form Question. Click the Search button to start the search.

Results

If your search has results they will be shown in the Results tab. Click the Edit icon or the Copy icon next to a result as per the icons in the sidebar. If you have more that 25 results then click the Next button to go to the next page of results.

Response Editing

Editing a response is handled by the in-built Google form edit functionality, the add-on itself does not handle any of the editing. The Google form response editor shows the form exactly as it would for a form submission and the editor must follow the same flow of the form but can see and change the responses within the form. The form must be submitted again to save your edits.

Anyone with a response edit URL can edit the response so share the links carefully.
