    When I integrate with google sheets is it possible to have additional fields where I can take notes, etc. concerning the entry? It seem like every time I submit new form it wipes out rest of info?

    I would like to add several new columns where I can add notes, confirm dates, etc. I'm am not editing any of the info in the linked columns. Every time a new submission is made and the sheet repopulates it wipes out these columns. Is there a way to prevent this? Other option would be to create a second sheet with this info and then edit each individual submission with this info. But its not the cleanest method.

    If I do have to add a second page and edit the form is there a way to restrict the access to the second page?

    If I understood correctly your request you would like to add some columns to the Google Spreadsheet. The simplest way is to add new fields to the form, according to the columns you would like to have in the Spreadsheet and then hide the fields:

    Like this your form is not affected, as these new fields are not visible to the user, but they will be visible and unaffected in the Spreadsheet.
