    I have replicated your issue on the form I cloned from yours. I was able to integrate but it is not updating either on my side. What I did was - I cloned the form, integrate it with google spreadsheet (didn't work), then I re-integrate (Showed the spreadsheet on my google docs but not updating when I tried a submission).

    We are very sorry for any inconvenience it may have caused you. We will get back to you for any updates.

    I will now escalate your issue to higher level of support.

    Hello rupertg.  It appears that the problem happens when your form element is not starting with an alphabet character.  Removing the numbers in your form's fields and reintegrating your form again will make it run properly.

    I'm also looking into this matter to find out what's causing this.  We'll inform you as soon as this is fixed.

    Hello rupertg, 

    I have made a fix that should resolve this issue.  You may now test your form and see your submissions inserted to your google spreadsheet.  However, it's still recommended that your questions should start with alphabet characters.

    If you have other questions or concerns, please do let us know.
