    Unfortunately you can not fill the fields of the form through google sheets. But it is possible to integrate the form with Google Spreadsheet so the submissions will go directly on the Google Spreadsheet.

    Please follow the instructions in the url below on how to integrate the form with Google Sheets:

    1. customer leaves information

    These features may help you: 

    1. Allow users to edit their submissions: This will require them to submit the form and trigger all the email notifications or integrations on your form, you will be able to access such information from the submissions page and they can edit the submission with their edit link.

    2. Save and Continue Later: This feature allows users to save the entered information on our servers and access to it at any time with a custom link, this requires two forms, the first one that will create the session and the second one that will be the main where your users will enter their information.

    3. Auto-fill feature: This saves the entered data on the browser's storage, it requires the users to continue filling the form using the same browser and computer.
