    Do reports automatically update?

    Asked by r180 on September 01, 2011 at 11:11 AM

    I generated an Excel report... and used the link to download it.

    Is this a static report, or will it update automatically over time?

    Meaning, I want to give one of my staff the link... and tell her to save it... and each time she accesses it, the new Excel sheet will have all current data on it.

    Or, do I need to generate a new report and link each time I want updated results?

    The Excel report link works the same way as the Download as Excel link found in your form's submissions page. It will always generate your form's most current data.

    So yes, you can give it to your staff and not worry about missing a submission entry. :)
