    Google Docs integration forwarding data with delay

    Asked by davibiel on March 25, 2013 at 03:25 PM




    The JotForm is not synchronized with Google Docs. The data entered into the form are entering the Google Docs hours later, that sucks!

    What is happening?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Are you talking about the Google Spreadsheet integration? My test form is forwarding the submissions data to the Google Spreadsheet without any delay.

    Can you please re-integrate your form(s) with the Google Spreadsheet and then try it again?

    If that does not help, please let us know.

    This issue is already fixed, so you shouldn't have this issue any more, but if that still happens please remove the integration and rebuild it.
