    Downloading excel document with pictures stored locally

    Asked by teamicatmedia on July 22, 2013 at 06:41 PM

    Hello, my company has used JotForm to send out a casting call for a video production. The actors responded with text information and photographs. We are interested in downloading a report on the results of that casting call and storing all the data locally on our own hard drive. This is very easy to do by going to Submissions>Download as:>Excel. However, the resulting saved document has text links that reference image files that the actors included, but we need the document to have the images self-contained within it. In other words, the images need to be in the excell document locally, not as links that must be accessed online. Is there a way to do this?

    I am afraid that by default it is set that way (link only) when exporting as CSV/Excel.

    I suggest that you integrate with dropbox and google drive.


    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Thank you
