Export your responses

You can download all your data to a spreadsheet in Excel (XLS) or CSV file formats. This is useful for doing further analysis, or for merging data from multiple typeforms.

Important! From June 20, 2022 onward, users who cancel their paid Typeform subscriptions will not be able to download or export their responses immediately after the plan cancellation goes into effect. Instead, these users will have a 14-day waiting period between requesting a download of their responses and being able to access the downloaded file. For this reason, we recommend that users who are canceling their Typeform subscription export their responses before their plan cancellation goes into effect. For more details, see this page

Download your responses

1. Open your typeform from your Workspace, and click on Results, then Responses:

5. Open your downloaded file in the application of your choice, like Google Sheets or Microsoft Excel, and you’ll be able to view and study your responses however you want.

Note! If you use a Yes/No question, responses will appear as 1 for yes and 0 for no in the CSV/XLS file. Questions that cannot collect responses are not shown. Therefore, Welcome and Thank You screens, Statement and Question Group titles do not appear in your responses. Question Group sub-questions do appear (unless they are Statements). export1.png

Note! For Multiple Choice questions with multiple selection enabled, the question itself won't be shown as a column when downloading to CSV/XSLX. Instead of having empty columns for these questions, the answer choices will be shown in separate columns.

Download file uploads

If you have a File Upload question on your typeform, you can download all files people have sent you, by clicking the Download all responses button:

You can download individual files one by one by opening a response from the Responses tab. Click the expand icon to do this in the Table view, or click an individual response from the Inbox view:

Then, scroll to the File Upload question and click the file link:

Currently, you cannot download a selection of files from the Responses tab. If you want to download a selection of files, go to the Summary tab, scroll to your File Upload question, and click on the links you want to download:

Expecting thousands of responses?

If you are expecting thousands of responses, we recommend setting up our Google Sheets integration, so you get all your responses directly sent to a Google sheet. It can collect up to 2000 existing responses from your typeform too!

If you have approaching 10,000 responses, you may find the download responses feature gets very slow, or even crashes. We are working to improve this, but in the meantime, if you want to download a large number of responses, you can filter them by question and download them in batches.

If all else fails, please contact us using the Contact Support button at the bottom of this page, and we’ll retrieve your responses for you.

Export your responses as PDF

We do not currently allow full responses to be exported as PDFs. When printing a summary report of your responses or printing an individual response, however, you can create PDFs by setting the print destination to Save as PDF

Schedule regular email reports

You can schedule regular reports via email using Digest by Zapier. Read our complete instructions to setting it up for your typeforms.
