    How to add a column that numbers the submission in Reports?

    Asked by wrizky on March 27, 2011 at 06:55 AM

    Hi there,

    I intend to add a column which contains numbering of all submissions in Reports page. How do I do that? Because when the submission exceeds 20, it's just gonna be hard for users to know in which row their submission is enlisted.

    And, can we by default tell the Reports to sort the data based on submission date?

    Hi there,

    Thank you for using JotFrom!

    Unfortunately this feature is not yet available in JotForm at the moment. However, I see how this could be very handy. In any case, we will try and include this to our request list. Hopefully we will be able to integrate this in the future.

    Now, by default, Jotform sorts your reports by the order in which submissions are received. So the newest reports are topmost. Obviously, if you use the excel format this will display it in this order by default. Unfortunately, there is no way to get around this. Best way to get a more versatile set of results is to choose between the other types of reports such as “grid listing”, “html table” and the like. These options will allow you to set several sorting arrangements. But, if you use either the “Excel” or “CSV” options you are out of luck.

    As I’ve said, these are good ideas. Needless to say, they are worth looking into. We appreciate your feedback and we hope that we will be able to develop these features in the future to be able to serve you better.
