    To import data, do you have to be connected to the internet?

    Asked by Kelsy Woodson on October 29, 2013 at 02:55 PM

    We will be using the forms to collect data and I wanted to know if you have to be consistently connected to the internet to do so or does the form save it locally and then can upload later?


    Is the only way to receive the data is via-email or going to the website? Preferably we would like to only receive the data via the website.
