    I am having trouble embedding a form report in my google site.

    Asked by austinymcastrategicplan on August 05, 2014 at 01:07 PM

    When I use the add a gadget option, I enter the URL of the report and google gives me this message

    The gadget you added is not valid

    Unsupported feature: org.apache.shindig.common.xml.XmlException: The reference to entity "listingID" must end with the ';' delimiter. At: (28,110)

    If I add ; at the end of the URL, I receive the message Unable to find URL

     

    How do I format the URL so google gadget will recognize it?

     

    form report Google Site site xml message format find

    Hi,

    Here is our guide on embedding a form to a Google site:

    The gadget URL should look something like this:

    http://hosting.gmodules.com/ig/gadgets/file/102235888454881850738/jotform.xml

    If you are still receiving the error after following the guide, please let us know the URL you are using for the gadget and we will be happy to see what we can do.

    Hi,

    The links appear to be working fine when I check them.  You can also copy and paste them if clicking on them does not work.  Here is the link again just in case:

    I have not problems embedding forms in my google site. But I would like to
    embed a report, instead of having a link to it. Is this possible?

    Hi,

    You might want to consider our visual report feature.

    You can show the HTML table listing report on your website.

    The report may be accessed via direct link on our website, and placed (embedded) on your web pages. Report embedding option may be useful if you want to share the submitted data between form users.
     
    It comes with an optional Password protection, and sort submissions data by Ascending/Descending order (try to click on the column titles on your live report) features.
     
    Let's start with creating your first HTML Table Listing Report.
    (All data shown are just example for you to visually understand.)
     
    1. Click on the 'My Forms'  link.
     
    Click on My Forms
     
     
     
    2. Click on your form to 'Select' it.
    Select the form
     
     
    3. Click on the 'Reports' drop down, and then select the 'Add New Report' option.
     
    Click on the Reports
     
     
     
    4. Select the 'HTML Table Listing', and click on the 'Next' button.
     
    Add New Report
     
     
     
    5. Set the report 'Name', configure your report 'Fields', and enable the 'Password protection' option if you need it, then click on the 'Next' button.
     
    Report Options
     
     
     
    6. That is it. The report is ready. You will get a 'Direct link' to the Report, and the 'iFrame code' (that code is used for embedding, so you can embed the report on your web pages).
     
    Access and Share the Report
     
     
     
    This is how the report will look like:

    Online example:

    Google has placed further restrictions on its Sites application that
    prevent ANY non-gadget IFRAME code from working in Google Sites.
    I am reading about how to write my own gadget, but I am not a programmer.
    That is why I went with your services.

    Hi,

    The walk through I posted is indeed how to embed a report.  I did some looking into the iFrame issue with Google sites and these are their recommended steps to remedy this:

    If possible, update the iframe URL to https Map the site Chrome users can change the behavior using the shield button. See help article. Although not recommended, you can also use the command line flag---allow-running-insecure-content to prevent Chrome from checking for insecure content. Instructions on how to add a command line flag can be found on our Chromium site 

    Please let us know if you have any further questions and we will be happy to help.
