    We have 1200 students in 60 sections. Is it possible to upload the row names to be used in the tables from a csv file?

    As  I can understand, you need to import the table headers from en external CSV file, is this correct? 

    Please note that this is not possible, you will need to manually set up each header on the field settings. 

    If you're referring to a different feature, please let us know so we can further assist you.

    Ideally if we could do it from a CSV file that would be great, but it does not look like it is possible. We currently use google app scripts to create spreadsheets, but we were hoping to do something similar with forms. Unfortunately, with 1200 students it is not feasible to type all their information in to separate sections easily.

    If you're looking to send the data submitted from your form to a spreadsheet, then that's indeed possible, please check this guide that will help you doing so: https://www.jotform.com/help/228-How-to-Integrate-Form-with-Google-Spreadsheet 

    However, the JotForm integration will create a new spreadsheet, if you want to integrate with an existing spreadsheet, please check the Zapier integration instead: https://zapier.com/zapbook/google-sheets/jotform/ 

    I hope this helps.

    Thank you! I will take a look at zapier and see if it can be used to change the jot forms.
