    Can I add columns to the submissions spreadsheet

    Asked by taragoldwasser on February 26, 2014 at 05:45 PM

    I want to add columns to the submission spreadsheet that the form feeds in to. I am not editing any of the existing columns, just adding more columns at the end. I did this one time and they stayed, but it seems that after a new person submits a form, my custom columns were deleted. Please advise.

    Hi,

    You can actually insert column to the right most end of the integrated spreadsheet and still retain the submissions.

    I tested it on my google spreadsheet integration here

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0ArHMx2ARJqlrdEdOTjgyZTRXY3dEbEc0OWNZR3Q5SUE&usp=sharing

    This is the test form http://form.jotform.me/form/40568500040443?

    As you can see on my shared spreadsheet, I added custom column at the right.

     

    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance.

    Thanks.
