I want the data which is submitted to us from the form to be in CSV format.

    If we're asking five questions and we receive those answers I want to plot them in Google maps via an excel or Google Sheets spreadsheet, but the data when cut and pasted is in the wrong format. I would prefer to integrate the output of the jot forms to a comma delimited format, and send that to my cloud drive. The goal is to take advantage of a neat little Google Maps trick where you can use a spreadsheet to plot points on the map and have an accompanying tool-tip with a blurb. Right now I have to cut and paste each field into the spreadsheet (Google Sheets) as it doesn't automatically format them across the rows when I use basic cut-paste to buffer, and while the formatted paste offers a delimiter selection, none of them are a basic carriage return, which is the real delimiter we need, and should be default.

    Thanks in advance,

    We do have an integration with Google Spreadsheet, you could add the integration to your form and receive submissions automatically on your spreadsheet without manual process involved.
