My form is integrated with google docs but the spreadsheet is not populating.

    Asked on May 28, 2013 at 11:35 AM

    I have a form that I integrated with dropbox and google spreadsheet.  When I tested the form on May 16th, it was populating the google spreadsheet, but now it is not working.  

    I have 12 submissions, but only the first three are showing up in the google doc.  The other 9 submissions, sent in May 27th and May 28th, are not showing up.  

    Is there anything I can do to fix this?

    I checked your form and don't see any issue in your google spreadsheet integration. 

    Request you to please remove the current google spreadsheet integration and integrate it again. Let us know if that helps you.

    Thanks Sidharth.  Removing and reintegrating does bring up a spreadsheet with all of the responses, but new responses are not populating as they come in.  I have to remove the spreadsheet integration and then integrate it again to see something new after it comes in.  Is it supposed to populate automatically? Or should I just create a new spreadsheet when I have new responses?

    I've some changes to your form specially those symbols and special characters and integrated the form to Google Spreadsheet. All works fine then.

    Google Spreadsheet:

    Please cloned the form and use it instead. Follow this guide: How to Clone a Form


    Thank you!

    I have a similar problem but only a few columns of information are not populating. Even if I remove integration and then add it back again it still does not populate. Is there anything else I can do besides disabling and reconnecting the form?

    Thanks Welvin,
    I have already sent the URL of the form to my participants. Is there
    anyway to have the new cloned form use the same URL as the old form?

    Hi Debbie,

    Sorry but that is not possible. You may consider this workarounds:

    1. Cloned first the original form

    2. Edit the original form

    2. Add Free Text HTML Field as the first field

    4. In Free Text HTML Field, add a note to let them access the new form to proceed


    Disable the original form. On the Form Advance Settings, put the new form link as the Warning Message. Example:

    I am having the same issue as the original user. I have removed and reauthenticated twice, both times all previous entries returned. I am still unable to get new entries to populate without this process.
