    I think a workaround could be the following: 

    1. Create a CSV Report in your form

    2. Insert the following syntax in any cell of your Google Docs Spreadsheet Tab:


    Where http://form.jotform.com/csv/report_id_here is path to your CSV report.

    I did some tests and it took some minutes to update the sheet on my side


    Let us know if it worked for you
