Heavy load broke Google integration?

    Hi JotForm, 

    I absolutely love the Google Doc and Dropbox integration you offer. Bravo!

    In a typical week I receive ~50 form submissions, and the Google Spreadsheet integration works great. However, this weekend I had nearly 200 submissions in one day! These were recorded in JotForm, and synced well with Dropbox. However, the updates to Google Spreadsheet didn't sync the last ~100 submissions. 

    Did the heavy usage break the integration?

    We will look into the problem and get back to you. 

    My recommendation would be to remove the integration and re-establish it. That might fix the problem.

    Thank you very much for reporting. I did go ahead and had a look to your forms&spreadsheets, couldn't find any related info. Could you please provide some information regarding the problem?

    Thanks for looking into this issue. Here is some more information:

    - The form with the issue is #32245343290852 (http://jotform.co/form/32245343290852), and is named "D-Prize First Round Application.

    - The form asks users to input form data and upload files. It has a Google Spreadsheet and Dropbox integration.

    - The form has 555 submissions in total, with ~200 coming in on November 30.

    - All of these submissions are viewable on JotForm and can be downloaded from JotForm as a .xls file. The documents uploaded with each submission are also viewable in Dropbox.

    THE PROBLEM: When I open the Google Spreadsheet integrated with my JotForm form, data has only been populated for the first 462 forms. Data for forms 463-555 is not displayed. Obviously this data is still retrievable through JotForm, but I am wondering why the integration would break down after working for the first 462 forms?
