    I would like to delete a submission from Jot Form and see it updated in my Google Sheet. Does it sync and remove it?

    Hello okinus,

    Do you mean to say that if you delete a submission record form your form's submission page, does it also delete from the google spreadsheet as well?

    No it will not delete the submission record from integrated google spreadsheet even if it is deleted from JotForm.

    Hope this helps. 

    Do get back to us if you meant to ask something else.

    Thank you!

    Correct. How could you make this work best?

     

    Also, another question is… If I’m in my Google Doc and I fill a cell GREEN. Will it stay green once the form updates with new submissions or will it override what I have done?

    Please note that it's not recommended to alter the Google Spreadsheet that is integrated with a form, as that may cause the integration to break, which would result in losing sync and not having new submissions added to the spreadsheet.

    I would suggest keeping the integrated spreadsheet as is, and altering a copy of it if needed.

    I hope this helps. If you need further assistance please let us know. Thank you.
