With the default configuration, Form Publisher saves a PDF copy in Google Drive in addition to the document it generates (Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides). You can keep this feature on or you can turn it off, if you do not need to keep PDF copies in Google Drive.
Form Publisher saves Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, or PowerPoint) documents in Google Drive only when you configure at least one of the recipients to receive Microsoft documents.
Form Publisher is already configured for the Google form.
- Start Form Publisher by clicking the Add-ons icon in your Google form and selecting Form Publisher.
- In the pop-up menu, click Launch Form Publisher.
The Form Publisher for Google Forms add-on starts in the lower-right part of the screen and opens the Template and markers page.
- Click the Menu button.
The Form Publisher menu opens.
Select File generation options.
- Under Other options, deselect the Keep PDF copy in Drive checkbox to stop saving PDF copies.
- Click Save.
The next time someone makes a form submission in the current form, the Google Docs document is generated but a PDF copy is no longer created.
