    Widget - Matrix Dynamique - Excel/CSV Download

    Asked by Beeny1 on December 17, 2013 at 07:03 AM


    I have created the form using the above widget.  When I click view submissions the screen doesn't show clearly.

    When I try to down load as Exel or CSV the information looks like this (exceldownload.jpg)

    I need the submissions to download showing the information provided in the different fields in the form in different columns on the excel/csv sheet.

    I need to use this widget as I need the facility for people to add as many rows per day as required, but I also need it to download in a way that can actually be used/read easily.

    Unfortunately, I am not able to add more than 1 image to show the jotform submission screen.

    Please advise the best solution.

    Many thanks

    We apologize for this inconvenience. I have now reported this to our dev team to rectify the problem. While testing it this only happens with the old form but when I try to create a new form with Matrix Dynamique the value shown in your image does not show up. I will try to explore more on this issue in the mean time I have created a ticket for this issue for further investigation. You will be notified via this thread once an update is available.

    The format on your spreadsheet is the JSON object (raw information) of rows input by the submitter. I will soon convert it to a readable form soon. 

    Thank you for your patience
