Works with:
10,000,000+
Overview
Select multiple Forms from your Drive and merge them into the current Form with 1 click! 

Did you ever want to just reuse a few questions from a Form in your Drive? Now you can, just pick the Form in the popup window and it will populate with the questions from that Form. It even will show you which questions were required in the original form and make them required in your new one! Select the ones you want to insert and FormRecycler will automagically insert them at the end of the Form!

Now also supports Team Drives and will recycle quiz questions preserving the point values. It will not recycle embedded images, video questions or section headers right now.

Hi, this is a great app! However, even if it now supports Team Drives, my institution does not have one, and things are so bureaucratic that I would like to suggest a feature addition. I am working with a team of two other colleagues, and we'd like to recycle questions from forms that I have created for a former course. The problem is, even if my colleagues are able to work and edit forms on a shared Google Drive folder, it seems that FormRecycler will only allow one to recycle questions from forms that have been **created by the current user**. It would be good if users could recycle questions from forms created by other users and to which edit privileges have been granted, since they appear in the list of available forms for question recycling. Just to make it clear: User A creates a form in a folder and shares it with users B and C, giving them full access for editing and viewing. However, if user B tries recycling questions from user A's shared form on a brand new form of his own, the script displays an error. It would be good to enable user B/C to create a form with questions recycled from user A's, since he shared the form with them. Best regards, Marcos

I would like it better if picture with question was recycled along with question. Having to re-insert the picture to the question in the copied form takes additional time.

I love this add-on but I wish it could do a little more. I would like to use it to create a test bank of questions in multiple Google Forms. When I create a quiz, I would like to recycle the questions. However, I loose any attached images, point value assigned, and the correct 'quiz' answer. Are there any plans to upgrade this add-on to work with Google Forms quiz features?

I love the idea and it seems to work with most questions. However, when I re-use a simple Choice Eliminator question with times just listed as 9:00, 9:30, 10:00 etc, it changes the format to GMT and adds a date, December 1989, to each answer.

I would love this add-on if two things could be improved: 1) the answers to the questions (from the original form) should come in with the questions (to the new form), 2)I want to be able to pull in questions from one form in one section, and then from another form in a separate section, (and so on). I can see Madge had similar concerns. Any chances this will get updated? (I will be a big fan and tell others about this add-on if this can happen.)

It picks up all data (questions as well as sections and titles) but it will NOT recycle them correctly. It just stops recycling after bringing in the first chosen section or title. If one is to choose ONLY questions, they are recycled as a bulk section in the end of the form. :(

I have tried importing a full list of questions and just sections. It just imports empty sections or just the first 5 questions

I used this feature a ton last year, yet now that we converted to our team drives.. this add on will not allow to recycle forms from our team drive. Very frustrating
