    Sharing form submissions data

    Asked by angusrussell on August 22, 2014 at 10:06 AM
    The data from the entry form needs to be accessed by not only ourselves, but also the race organiser or owner ( we offer a selection of services ranging from timing to a turn-key event), and it seems to me that the best way to do this is to have the data exported to a google spreadsheet? Will this happen in realtime as people submit forms?

    You are asking about submissions and sharing your data from what I understand.

    There are various ways to do this. One of the most common is as you have mentioned which is using google spreadsheets and yes this does update in real-time after a submission has been sent to you.

    Alternatively, you could even export them to excel or share your submission viewer if you want.

    Magic, thanks.

    So does each form have it's own submission viewer process, so that data from only one specific form will be shared?

    Each form has it's own set of submissions but depending on where and how you send this data, you can combine the data from several forms in to one place.  In the case of Google spreadsheets, yes the data is immediately sent to the spreadsheet upon completion of submission.  Anyone with access to that spreadsheet would be able to view the data in real time.  Only the form or forms you have integrated with the sheet will have their data sent to it.
