How do I make my Google Form public?
Remove a/macalester.edu/ from the form's URL to make it public so that anyone (even those without a Macalester username and password) can complete and submit it. Test the updated address in a different browser before publishing/sending the form.

  1. Create the Google Form as you normally would do. (Create, send, and edit a form information.)

  2. Go to the live form. From the Form menu, select Go to live form.



  3. Viewing the live form, locate a/macalester.edu/ in the browser's address bar.



  4. Delete a/macalester.edu/ from the URL. Notice how the updated URL begins with https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?



  5. Get ready to test the new URL before you publish or send the public form. Copy the URL. Be sure to copy the entire address. (Try tripple-clicking in the address bar. Most of the time that selects the entire address.)



  6. Open a different Web browser than the one used to create the form. Paste the updated address in the address bar.

    NOTE: Do not log into any Macalester services, you want to test how users who do not have a Macalester login views the public form.

    The form should appear and not require a Macalester username and password.
