    I'm having issues with Google Spreadsheets Integration

    Asked by markashton on August 06, 2013 at 11:18 AM

    Well,

    I can tell you  ... I've had to battle with your Google Spreadsheet integration .... 

    And I can tell you with a shadow of a doubt that it doesn't **** work ... and anyone who is relying on it .... should not.

    DON'T USE IT UNLESS YOU WANT TO WASTE HOURS

    Is there something I'm missing with regard to this integration.... here are the issues ...

    1) submissions inexplicably don't come in
    2) Others do
    3) Some are massively late ... very late

    Frustrating ... you've no idea ... I'm only doing this because your grid report displays lop-sided thumbnail photos ... you don't have to be Poirot to see that this integration is riddled with trouble.

    Here's a five minute search and read by yours truly ...

    Some guy's having the same problem here today:

    Oh dear ... it hasn't been fixed yet!

    I give up on this

    CONCLUSION ... it cannot be relied on. Period.

    If you're reading this ... DO NOT TRY IT unless you have a lot of time on your hands.

    I would suggest Zapier ... but I've tried that too

    Thanks Mark
