30 Oct How to set time limits on Google Forms submissions
Google have continuously been making improvements to Google Forms, most recently allowing third party add-ons for use within the application. Using the formLimiter Add-on, you can now set a time or capacity limit on your survey to cap your responses.
To get started, head to the Add-ons menu bar and go to ‘Get Add-ons’. Install the formLimiter add-on.
Once you have installed the add-on, you can then find this under ‘Add-ons’. To get started, hover over the Add-on name, formLimiter, and select ‘Set limit’.
A sidebar will appear, which will allow you to set a limit type. This can be date & time, or capacity. For this tip, you want to select date & time.
Now, you can select the date, time and a specific message to be displayed when your form reaches its limit. Organisations who might find this feature particularly useful are those who want to run time sensitive competitions, or who need to gather survey information before a certain deadline. To finish setting your limits, click ‘Save and enable’.
Your form will now automatically expire when your limit date & time arrives. You can choose to receive a notification of this time by clicking the checkbox in the sidebar.
