    Send different response to submission spreadsheet

    Asked by analogueteacher on August 28, 2013 at 01:32 PM

    Is it possible to create a form which displays simplied options to the user but submits different information to the spreadsheet. 

    For example, let's say that I have a course registration form and a users selects "Algebra 101". Rather than submitting Algebra 101 to the submissions sheet, could I set the form to submit a course code like "ALG101A"?

    Hello analogueteacher,

    JotForm doesn't provide options to create key and value pairs. You can still implement this through custom JavaScript. You can download your form's full source code and add custom JavaScript.

    It should be very simple to achieve this by replacing your form's dropdown code with its key and value pairs. Let us know your form # and we will help you with custom JavaScript code.

    We will wait for your response.


    Thank you!
