    Is it possible to use jotform, integrated with google spreadsheets in offline mode to add information to a google spreadsheet offline? Essentially the form would be offline, and would push information into a google spreadsheet that is in offline mode on the same computer.

    Hello, unfortunately this is not possible for JotForm to do. You can access Google Drive in offline mode but JotForm needs to work with an internet access at all times.

    This is due to the fact that JotForm performs this steps:

    1. User fills up the form
    2. User submits the form
    3. JotForm connects to JotForm server
    4. JotForm server retrieves the submitted data from the form
    5. JotForm server issues email alerts to recipients
    6. JotForm server forwards the data to Google Drive Spreadsheet servers.

    As you can see from the steps above, it is impossible for JotForm to be in offline mode on any time. If you need further help, please do not hesitate to ask. Thanks
