    Update form for multiply entries. (URGENT)

    Asked by Mahdi J on May 31, 2012 at 04:40 AM

    Please see below image:


    I created a form with 3 TEXT BOX.  ( q1 - q2 - q3 ) These text boxes are not filled in one time and each box will be filling in 1 week, I just want to show text box 1 for first week and hide rest of them, so people only able to fill text box #1.

    In the seccond week I want to show text box #2 and they are only able to fill that

    BUT the issue that I have is people (users) are the same with a (SAME) email for each weeks, and I want to see updated export sheet in Google doc,  not creating a new filed,  for example we are in 3rd week and they answered to the #1 and #2 question text boxes last weeks and now they want to fill form #3, so if he/she wants to answer to the question on this week it should UPDATE the form not Creating a new filed, the answer should come front of the same email address.  in the image you can see I entered the #3 with SAME email and SAME IP addresses but it's not going to update the fiiled, it was created a NEW filed that is wrong and don't want to be like this, Is there any solution, I really approciated for quick reply,

    Unfotunately, this is not possible.  Currently, what the Google Spreadsheet integration does is it receives every submission coming from JotForm as a new entry, including edits.  If you receive an edit submission, Google Spreadsheet will treat it as a new submission, thus it will add at the end of the list in your spreadsheet.

    But let me submit a feature request to the development team if this is possible.  Unfortunately I cannot give you a timeframe to when this feature can be implemented as they are pretty busy working on updates and developments that are in the pipeline.  But as soon as we have updates, we'll let you know.
