Feedback on Table Changes For Forms In Progress

    You introduced the new tables today. Congratulations for continuing to add value to JotForm.

    However...changing the Submissions to Tables without the ability to go back to classic Submissions has me doing more work than I used to.

    My forms are all connected to Google Sheets, which manages and monitors a contest entry system I've used Jotform successfully for the last several years. Occasionally, though, one form won't get scooped over to the spreadsheet for various reasons. In classic Submissions I could easily find it, copy the data line at the bottom, and drop it into the spreadsheet.

    New Tables has changed the format of the data so that I can't do that. For example, a field that is designed to capture a score of 1-10 used to just say "9". Now the data reads "9/10". So copying now requires further editing. I have several of these examples where the way the spreadsheet is expecting the data is now changed.

    I'm sure I will get used to the new format, but changing it without the ability to read the raw data anymore is a little frustrating. I just wanted you to have this feedback for your consideration.

    Thank you.

    Hello Pam,

    Thank you for your feedback. Your insight is significant for us to develop the system further.

    As for reverting to the old version, you will see the option while on the Tables page, click on your avatar, then click on the "Switch to older version" option:


     a field that is designed to capture a score of 1-10 used to say "9". Now the data reads "9/10".

    I can see that you are referring to the Scale Rating field, correct? Kindly confirm if you prefer to show only the answer without the highest rating value? Let's see if there's a workaround that we can implement to meet your requirements.

    Thank you, looking forward to your response.
