    Hello - 

    Love Jotform to ask website visitors about their location, but I need a quick and easy way to have new form submissions uploaded into a google map created with Google Maps Engine.

    What I've tried so far:  Submissions automatically transferred into a Google Spreadsheet --> I then import the spreadsheet into the map.

    The Problem(s):  No way to import new submission data into the map without over-writing changes i've made on the map to existing entries (pin color, notes, etc...).  Plus, the importing process is still manual... Ideally the submissions would be uploaded to the map automatically.  

    Any ideas?  I would love to get these two great programs (Jotform and Google Maps Engine) to play nicely together.

    Any thoughts you have would be greatly appreciated.

    -Evan

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I think that you will need a custom solution to add the locations to your Google Map in a real time.

    The data can be automatically sent to a custom script with a Webhook option:

    It means that you will need a script to process the address data and add it to the map. For example, you might consider hiring a programmer via https://www.odesk.com or https://www.elance.com/ for this task.
