Spreadsheet to Form widget: I would like to use one spreadsheet for all forms

    GM,

    I use the sheet-2-form on on about 4 or 5 forms. More times then not they may use the same file. So I have to upload the updated for each form that needs this sheet.

    You have a storage system for these sheets in the same way you store images. If I need an image, i have uploaded, I just look it up in your db and apply it. After all you are storing the same file multiple times. 

    Now I'm going to make a guess that this same process is not available for the sheet-2-form widget. Then I would not need to upload it 4 or 5 times and be sure that I get all the forms that use it.

    Question is, can you come up with an idea, a work around, that I need only upload it once, after each update and each form that uses it will be current?

    Perhaps an update to the widget so it uses the most current version stored on your servers. I'm just pulling ideas out of mt tiny hat.

    Thank you gals & guys for a great system and superb support... Nothing like it anywhere.

    (honey on toast helps)

    Best,

    Hi,

    Actually I was looking for a possible work around...

    Some like another form that is the, so to speak, server for the others and copies input/output from a sheet-2-form widget to the other forms. The other forms would not have the widget them selves only the results. Or is this not possible.
