    Feature: Is it possible to share multiple forms w/ same fields on one Google Spreadsheet?

    Asked by intranet.admin on January 22, 2014 at 10:32 AM

    There is a Google form add-on called formRanger. This enables drop-down choices to be opoulated dynamically from a google spreadsheet. Using this it is possible for several forms with a common field to all use the same spreadsheet column to hold their choices. In this way the list only has to be maintained once. Is there something similar in jotForm? ie hold the option list only once but shared by a number of forms?


    many thanks

    Unfortunately this is not possible, at least I can say it definitely goes beyond the functionality provided by the JotForm builder. Nevertheless, you might be able to produce the neccesary functionality by using the source code of your form.

    I would definitely suggest looking into using the source code of the forms to try out such functionality. In any case, we can also raise a ticket to the development team as a Feature request, if you so desire. This way they can look into this and evaluate the possibility of developing such features.

    Do let us know if you need further assistance. Thank you.
