    Can I have shorter names entered into the spreadsheet than show on my form (from a checkbox)

    Asked by Prairie on June 27, 2014 at 02:42 PM

    I have form the asks someone to note which events the went to.

    Tuesday - Community Chapel

    Wednesday - Greatest Needs Chapel, etc.


    These are checkbox items which works well for everything else I need it to do.

    But when I go to the spreadsheet I would prefer it to just say:

    "Tuesday" instead of the whole checkbox name/title.

    You can only achieve that when you use and modify your form source code. How-to-Download-a-Source-Code-of-your-Form

    Find the check box values and edit it. Just retain the check box label if you want to. So the check box has the same label but different value when forwarded to your google spreadsheet.
