If you are anything like me, you might have a few different Google accounts that you work with on a regular basis. I ran into an issue recently where I spent a fair amount of time creating a Google Form, just to realize I did this while logged in with my personal account rather than my work account. I didn’t really want to redo the work I had done, but when I searched to try to find out how to move the form between accounts I didn’t come up with anything that addressed my situation.
It’s not hard to do, but I figured I’d write it down just in case it happens to you. I stumbled upon the fix just by trying a few things. Assuming this is a new form with no data all you have to do is the following:
- Add your second Google account as a Collaborator on the form
- Log in to your second Google account and “Make a copy” of the form
That’s it, now you have a copy of the form in your second Google account. Of course if you had already collected some data on the first form you would want to copy that Sheet and put it in your second Google account as well and attach the form to that copy of the data. Be sure to delete the old form so you don’t accidentally use the old form.
