Let’s See How To Remove Confirmation Page On Submission In Google Forms”

Apart from this, you can also use any of its pre-built templates.
Step 2: Personalized Questions In Your Form
Next, you have to add desired questions to the form depending on your form needs. So, you can do this just by clicking on the “Plus” icon from the “Questions” tab of the dashboard. You can also add some more form elements like file upload section, images, videos, etc. into your forms from here.
Step 3: Hit The “Setting” Icon
Now, once you are done with adding required elements into your form. It’s time to set up the confirmation page. For this, you have to select the “Gear” icon from the top right corner of the dashboard.

Restrictions Of Google Forms:
If you will stick to Google Forms even by applying a carrot-and-stick approach, still it will show a confirmation page to your visitors after the form submission. The reason behind this is that there is no way to remove it.
Now, if you think of using form redirection option of Google Forms to resolve this problem anyway, then again you will be left with very few possibilities to achieve the goal.
Again, the reason behind this is the same. It does not allow you to directly redirect your end-users at some different page. But, it will only show a link to that page on which you want your users to send.
Hence, it’s totally up to the users whether they want to jump on that page or not.
And, if they did not click on the link or take that message seriously, then there is no point in adding that link.
Apart from this, there are some more limitations of Google Forms in regards to the customization of the confirmation page that you realize only when you use other better form builders.
Are There Other Form Builders That Come With Better Options?
Yes, there is a huge number of form builders available online on the web that provide a variety of advanced features like customization or removal of the confirmation page.
But, if you ask me which tool is the best out of them then, I will recommend you use Pabbly Form Builder. Why?
There are several reasons behind this. But, the most important thing about it is it not only allows you to remove the confirmation page from the form but also allows you to add conditional redirections in your form.
Hence, the user doesn’t need to click on the link or button separately for redirecting on some other page after form submission. They will automatically redirect on dynamic pages depending on the inputs they submitted.
