Clean Google Forms Data Overview

Data Cleaning Tips

Abbreviations - Make sure to not put the same exact abbreviation on any 2 questions. If you use an abbreviation once you can not use it again.

Matrix Column Order - Matrix Column Order is required but not Matrix Row Order.

How Next/Save Affects Final Question and Abbreviation -If you leave Final Question and/or Abbreviation blank then the first column header value at the top will be put in these columns if you hit next /save/previous without entering a value in the field(s). If you enter the Final Question Text and not the Abbreviation it will place the Final Question text in the Abbreviation field. If you enter the Abbreviation Text and not the Final Question text it will place the first column header as the Final Question text.
