How to Prefill Google Forms

Open your form in Google Forms for editing. On the top right, click the three dots to view More options. Select “Get Pre-Filled Link.”

Select Get Pre-filled Link

When your form displays, answer the questions you want to prefill. Then, click “Get Link.”

Get Link and then Copy Link

At the bottom, you’ll see a message to obtain the link. Click “Copy Link” to put the URL on your clipboard and then paste it where needed. You’ll notice that the link contains your answer to the question as part of the syntax.

If you want to prefill a different answer or another question on the same form, close the form after you obtain the link. Then follow the same process and get the next unique link.

When you send the prefilled link to a respondent, they simply pop it into their address bar or click it from the email, text message, or however you share it, just like the original form link. They’ll see the questions answered already and can complete the form as normal.

Note: Respondents can change the answer you prefill. So, you may want to let them know that you’ve already provided answers to some questions for them.

Using prefilled Google Forms with unique links is a good way to alter the same form slightly to fit your needs without having to create separate forms. Plus, you can use branching logic with the prefilled forms too.
