    Google Spreadsheet integration - how to change fields order

    Asked by PositusPrimus on February 26, 2013 at 02:24 PM

    I'd like there to be a way to organize the field data "columns" in google drive to be in a certain order.  Im using some hidden fields for some columns.  I currently have the hidden fields at the end of the form - should I insert these hidden fields into the form sequentially where Id like to see them in order or ?  How else might I address this ?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    According to my test it is possible to move the columns on the Google Spreadsheet itself. You will need to integrate your form with the Google Spreadsheet, then open the online Spreadsheet and change the fields order.


    Move rows and columns

    Please note that you should not change the column titles, most probably it will break the integration.

    Hi, this seems to work with those forms already submitted, but when you get a new submission it goes into the old format, is there a way of fixing this?

    I have tested with two different integrations with Google Spreadsheet, through the JotForm's direct integration and through Zapier

    I noticed that the Zapier integration allows you to move the columns and receive the submissions in the same order, so if you have moved it you will still receive properly the submissions. 

    Please, give it a try using this Zap: https://zapier.com/app/editor/template/1927 

    Hope this helps.
