Are you looking for a way to delete a response from a Google Form that has already been submitted? Google Forms provide a straightforward way to delete responses that are still in a draft mode, but don't provide any way to delete responses that have been completed and submitted. If you're looking for a solution on how to delete a response on Google Forms, this guide can help.
Step 1: Select a Form
To get started, you’ll need to access the Google Forms dashboard. Log in to your Gmail account, click on the apps icon in the upper right corner, and select Google Forms. You’ll then be presented your list of existing forms. Choose the one you want to delete a response from, and click on its title.
Step 2: Identify the Responses to Delete
Once you've selected your Google Form, you'll see a page that displays the responses you've received. Some of them may still be in a draft mode, in which case you can easily delete them by selecting them and clicking the "Delete" button in the upper right corner.
If you need to delete a response that has already been submitted, you'll have to look at the submission details. For example, you might want to delete a response from a specific email address, or from a certain date range.
Once you've identified the response you want to delete, you'll need to open the form editor (click on the “Edit” button in the top of the form editor).
Step 3: Edit a Form
Once you’re in the form editor, you'll need to select the "Responses" tab, and then click on the "Responses" tab. Here, you’ll be able to view the list of all responses that have been submitted.
Step 4: Delete a Response
Once you’ve identified the response you want to delete, click the “bin” icon next to it. A confirmation prompt will appear asking you to confirm the deletion. Click “Yes” to delete the response, or click “Cancel” to keep it.
Step 5: Publish the Form
Once you’ve deleted the response, you need to click the “Publish” button at the top of the page. This will update the form to reflect any changes you’ve made.
What Happens When I Delete a Response from a Google Form?
