    I've successfully integrated Jotform into the right channel in Slack, however the display of the submissions is almost unreadable. There are lots of extra characters """"", [[[]]], etc. Is there a way to make the display more readable? The entry for "Enter Expenses Below" is a Spreadsheet widget. Is it possible to get the display to look the same as the entry? Would it be possible to have the pdfs of the receipts display, rather than being links? I've attached a screenshot for your viewing "dis"pleasure. LOL Thanks for your help!1612146006_60176556438cb_

    Hi there,

    I've been checking this in a clone of your form. The table that you are using in your form will always appear with the "" as two commas contain the value entered in a cell.

    As far as the highlighted data in your image is being sent by the widget you are using to upload the files. This will not appear if you use the default upload field.

    Here is the result.

    Thanks

    So how can I get the spreadsheet (Enter Expenses below) to display as a spreadsheet? And is there any way to get the PDFs to display, rather than be a link (Receipts)?

    Hi Beth,

    So how can I get the spreadsheet (Enter Expenses below) to display as a spreadsheet?

    It seems that Slack does not support spreadsheets. This is why the data in the spreadsheet is displayed with the commas so you can understand it better.

    And is there any way to get the PDFs to display, rather than be a link (Receipts)?

    Similarly, only the PDF link can be displayed in Slack. PDF itself can not be displayed.

    Let us know if you have any other questions

    Thanks
