    Values Missing on Email Field on Submissions Page or Exported to XLSX or CSV

    Asked by knlee on April 26, 2014 at 10:18 PM



    When exporting form data to XLS, CSV some required data is not included in the form. When I view submissions, if I click on the PDF view of a form submission and then click 'edit' the missing data shows up.  


    This isn't particularly accessible. Please help.

    The email field data is not displaying.  This appears to be the case for all submissions.  Attached is a screenshot that shows the empty field in XLS but that the data appears in the edit mode for the PDF view.

    I have tested the scenario you've described on your latest response. I was able to replicate the issue. I will go ahead an raise a ticket to the Dev Team so that they can review what is causing this. Once they have any updates on this, they will let us know through this thread. Thank you.

    I have investigated your form and could not find any problems related to your submission data. It seems that there are two "E-mail" fields, one is below "About You" section and one is at the end of your form. Since the first "E-mail" field is required, it is filled by everyone and data is there as expected.

    Could you please let me know if I get it wrong? I will be happy to assist you on this matter.

    Kind regards
