CSV stands for Comma-Separated-Value. This is a plain text format compatible with many desktop applications, including Microsoft Excel. The file contains one line per response, and one question per column.

Note that the file uses the Unicode (UTF-8) encoding. If you run into some issues opening the file in Excel, please check out the troubleshooting section.


This is a machine-readable format, most often used when custom development is needed to import the data in a third-party application.


If you have a Premier plan or above, you can export one or more of your responses from the report table as PDFs. When you select one response to export as a PDF, you will see the following pop-up appear:

You can enter a single email address or multiple emails separated by commas. The email address for the current user will appear by default. If multiple responses are selected to be exported you will also see this option appear:

By checking this box you can send all of the responses together, stacked into a single PDF. The merged PDFs will be ordered by Response ID. If you do not check this box then they will be sent as individual PDFs in a zip file attached to the email. 

Please also note that only the owner of the form can export the responses at this time. If a form has been shared with you through the Collaboration feature, you will not be able to export the responses as PDFs.

Note:  When exporting more than one response from the responses tab, merging the PDFs will allow for far more to be exported successfully due to email limitations. If you choose to send a zip file of individual responses, you will be able to send less in a single export depending on the quantity and complexity of the form responses. It is suggested that you use the merge functionality when selecting a large number of responses for the best results. On average, we recommend merging the PDFs if you're exporting more than 50 responses. If you’re exporting a large number of responses and receive a “Your request failed” email then please try selecting fewer responses before trying again, or use the merge option to send more responses stacked into a single PDF. 


This format exports all the files that have been uploaded with your form, in one or more ZIP files.
