How to Limit Responses to a Google Form?

In this digital world where everything is getting digital, Google Forms have emerged as a saviour for the majority of people out there. Google Forms helps people to conduct surveys or do different researches in their comfort zone only. Now there is not any need to go door by door to conduct a survey as you can easily do this at the comfort of your home. All it requires is a valid Gmail ID and anyone with that ID can fill in the Google forms or create one.

All those people who are already used to conduct surveys and research via Google Forms must be very well aware that at times it gets quite difficult to evaluate all the responses. This generally happens when you publicly post the link of Google Forms. For this we all wish to somehow limit the responses so that it gets easy for you to analyse if you are not doing a big survey.

Here are few methods through which you will be able to limit the responses of your Google Forms, at an ease –

Nifty Feature

Nifty Feature is a built-in feature with Google Forms and this helps the users to limit the responses after reaching a sufficient number. For that you need to follow these steps –

  1. Open your Google Form for which you wish to limit the responses and now go to the responses section.
  2. In the responses section, you need to search for accepting responses button. It will appear on the front of the screen in responses tab.
  3. Now whenever you wish to limit the responses, you can easily do this by following this method.

Even though Nifty feature is a built-in feature and is quite convenient but it is favourable only when you are getting few responses. This is not a good option for those who are getting huge responses on their Google forms as they will have to manually count each one of them.
