    I like the single question layout. However, I like using the multi question field but this data is not very friendly when integrated with 3rd party applications (namely Zapier). Am I missing something or is this something that will be corrected soon?

    Hello,


    There should be not much problems with integrating with Zapier whether you are using an old form layout or a new one. I also made a test integration using Zapier to Google spreadsheets as a test and I was able to submit the data successfully. Can you please give us more details about the problem that you are experiencing on this matter?

    Thanks.

    In the form found at this link below, the first question yields the HTML for a table in Zapier. Is there no way to isolate the fields of these multi-line questions?

    Are you referring to the Multi-line Question field? I'm afraid this is treated as a single field, the same way as how other widgets with multiple fields in it are treated.

    This field was just rolled out last week IIRC. We can put up a feature request for this but there's no assurance it will be considered anytime soon.

    If you're talking about this newly rolled out field and you need it to be parsed/treated as multiple/separate fields, let us know and we'll elevate your thread as a feature request.

    Yes please elevate to a feature request. Its kind of pointless in many applications to have multiple fields that cannot be parsed in that way.

    Thank you for your suggestion. I have raised this request to our developers for possible implementation. Please note that we cannot currently give you an ETA for the implementation of this request. You will be informed once this is applied.

    This feature becomes available now. You can separate multiline question field data by using each option unique name.

    Please have a try it on this demo form and let us know if you have feedback.
