How to Limit Responses on a Google Form

Google Forms are great for collecting survey and assessment data, but sometimes you may wish to turn them off when you have received a certain number of responses (e.g. if you are offering a PD class and only have room for 20 people, or you are organising a field trip and only have room for 40 students).

Thankfully, there is a way to do this using Add-ons.  Here's how:

Step 1:  From your form, go to the Add-ons menu and select Get add-ons:

Step 2:  In the window that appears, type in "Form Limiter", hit Enter, and then click + Free on the blue button that appears:

Step 3:  Click Allow

Step 4:  Now, go to the Add-ons menu and you will see there is a new option called formLimiter.  Select this menu, and then Set limit:

Step 5:  From the menu at the right-hand side, select the type of limit you wish to impose:

Step 6:  Set your limit and response message, then click Save and enable
