    Excel import

    Asked by yj000018 on April 05, 2013 at 10:30 AM

    1. Can I create a form by importing an Excel sheet?


    If not I would create the form manually and then:


    2. Can I import entries/submissions from the Excel sheet?


    I see the integration with Google Doc: I can export/visualize submissions in google docs, but can not import/update from there, right?


    How to do that?

    JotForm can only import HTML form.

    Yes you can export/import date from/to to google spreadsheet. If you want you can directly edit the data in google spreadsheet. 

    Please let us know if this answers your query or let us know if you meant to ask something else.

    Sorry but that's not possible. Google Integration means submissions submitted to the form from JotForm will be forwarded to Google Spreadsheet. It does not mean you can edit the google spreadsheet data to update the data on the JotForm side. 

    You may however access your form submissions page and manually edit each submissions submitted to your form. Here's how:

    1. Go to your My Forms page
    2. Select the form and click on Submissions button above it
    3. While on the submissions page, just select a submissions that you'd like to update on the data grid below and click Edit button above.
    4. Submit the form to save the changes.
