    Hello backstagepanda,

    I'm sorry for the trouble caused to you.

    I am able to replicate the issue you are having. If the input value of text area field has apostrophes character, the integrated google spreadsheet displays it as "'". It works fine with the text box field. Please check the screenshot below:

    I am reporting it to our back end team. We will get back to you as soon as this is fixed.

    Thank you!
