I have a form available for my thesis and I want to include a video after the fillers submitted in their answers

But I cannot do that since there is no option for that, the video can be played only before submitting in the questionnaire! Is there any chance to include the video after the submission? Here is the form attached below:*****

Hello, thank you for using Howly. I’ll be happy to help you out! May I ask your name?

Nice to meet you, *****!

Customer Replay

You too Ivy! I hope you can help me with my trouble. I've just asked my thesis leader to attend my PhD now he is mad at a stuff like this, ahhh...

To change the confirmation message:

  1. In Forms, open your form.

  1. Click Settingsand thenPresentation.
  2. Next to the Confirmation message, click Edit and enter your text.
  3. Click Save.

Also, you can simply add a second page to your form.
And post your video on the second page, so It'll available before "Submit" and after your questions.

Give me a minute please
and I'll check it

Ok, *****
No problem.

Customer Replay

Checking it now

Let me know how everything is going.

Customer Replay

Yeah, it's working. But in the confirmation message I can paste in only the link, not the video like a youtube videoplayer just like back in the form.
Is there any solution for that?
Therefore the filler should click on the play button, he doesn't have to open the link itself

Add to your form the second page.
And past your video there
But it'll be shown before submitting.
But after your questions.
Do you have any additional questions I can help you with?

Customer Replay

I think I need to show it to you, because I'm thinking on something else. Do you have Webex Teams, or is there any way for us for communication where I can screenshare?

Unfortunately, right now we provide help only in this chat or via email, *****.
But you can send me the screenshot in this chat.

Customer Replay

Alright, no worries! Thank you, I'll send you the screenshot momentarily.

Here, the videoplayer is the essence! It needs to attract the eye! The link is senseless for me, sorry! You know, as a keen economist we need to give those impulses to the customers :)
Alright, sure! Huge thanks!

I see. Unfortunately, the confirmation page allows only text formats. We can try to paste the video itself via code.

Customer Replay

Sure. And how can we make it done? That's new for me 

Ok, *****. I checked it. There is no way for the video itself because the HTML editor isn't available on the Google Forms confirmation page.
So, the only option there is to save it as the link.

Customer Replay

I see, then it shall be a link I guess. *****, is there a way to save our conversation from this page in order to show it to my thesis leader later? So he won't doubt me I tried my best

The chat history will be preserved.
Also. you can save this chat as a bookmark in your browser, or copy the link in your address bar and paste it to any place you'd like.
So, you'll able to come back later.
And if there will be a problem with this. We can always try to find another alternative to Google Forms, that supports that kind of integration to their confirmation pages.

Customer Replay

I see. I will stick to Google Forms this time, maybe the last, who knows :). Ivy! You are great, number 1#. I'm super satisfied with you. Please make a copy of this gratitude for your team leader :).
Anyways, I'm off to my duties now with the form. Thank you again, I wish you a nice day, bye-bye!

Thank you for choosing our service!
If you have any additional questions, don't hesitate to contact us anytime.
