    Is it possible to have a form submission populate a Google Docs Spreadsheet?

    Asked by brianhousman on February 07, 2011 at 07:49 PM

    I would like the form submission data to be dumped automatically into a Google Docs Spreadsheet I have created.

    Thank you.

    Impossible to give a date. We will consider implementing it in the feature and if we implement it, I will post an update here.

    This would be awesome to have. I find Google Form builder limted and very basic, and the confirmation page is not customizable. Would be great to use a 3rd party form builder which can populate a Google spredsheet!

    Cheers,

    Pleeeeease implement this functionality.  I love the ease of creation and styling of your tool compared to Google Forms, but still need to capture my data within a google spreadsheet. :-)

    Thanks in advance!

    Heck yes! add me to the vote for this functionality! Google forms are so limited and painful. A central location that my org has access too would rock! then we could end up changing status limit editing capabilities and everyone could be looking at the latest data. I'm salavating at the idea. Please add this!!!!!

    Yes, I am using a combination of jotform and google docs, but would very much prefer to have the frontend has jotform as it is much more feature rich; just have the data dump directly into a google document.

    Hi smripley,

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts, we appreciate it. For now, what you can do is to export an Excel copy of your JotForm form submissions and then manually upload it to your Google Docs account.

    We hope you find this information useful. Please let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you for using JotForm!

    Hi Greencapsicum,

    Your vote for Google Docs integration is counted!

    Did you know that you can divert your submissions into your computer's folder of choice with the use of the Dropbox - JotForm integration feature? You can choose your customer's first or last name to be the name of the folder in your JotForm account and also your desktop folder if JotForm is installed and synched in your computer. It follows that your form should have a field asking for the last name or first name of the customer.

    Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. Thank you for using JotForm!

    Please count me in to the many users requesting Jotform-Google Doc integration.  After many hours of work, I have to resign Jotform as an option for me.  The reason is Jotform does not allow submissions to be manipulated very efficiciently once they are in the spreadsheet.  I have requested, as many have, that Jotform allow the editing of submissions via the 'Public' submissions page.  I see two solutions that can make Jotform the number one tool for many business/web developers:

    1) Allow easy manipulation of the submissions via the Public submissions page.

    2) Allow form submissions to be sent to Google spreadsheet. 

    Many of us are having to choose between a graphically pleasing form and access to our data.  Should Google Docs' developers implement a better form builder interface, many of us would see no need to use Jotform at all.  For us, what Jotform support calls 'features', we call absolute 'necessity'.  Jotform is a great tool; however, it is yet to be a 'solution'!

    Hi there,

    I see how this might be handy. However, our developers are working on a long line of requested features everyday. Each feature has to be coded, tested, debugged and then rolled out. That is why as much as we would like to implement them sooner it is simply not possible. Nevertheless, we only want to make sure that everything we come out with is working 100%. Rest assured, we will try to get them ready as soon as possible.

    Thank you for your patience.

    A little while back, I read a post in the forum from a user (perhapslater on September 18, 2011) that shared a way to have the data submitted into a Jotform form automatically populate a Google Doc spreadsheet.  I followed the instructions and it worked great.  We are using this method until Jotform developers truly integrate Jotform with Google Docs.  Here is the link to the post:

    Hi Guys,

    Your clamor for this feature is certainly heard. We will just let you know once it's finished but we cannot guarantee a specific time for completion since our developers have other priorities right now (As far as I know they are currently working on Mail Chimp Integration). Thank you for understanding and have a great day!

    I could really make use of a way for the results of a Jotform to dump the data that comes in to a Google Spreadsheet.

    This issue is still with our developers. 

    You may have some luck getting data into a google spreadsheet using the importHTML command on google docs. 

     

    =ImportHTML("http://www.jotform.com/table/###########"; "table";1)

     

     as per the solution described in this thread:
