    I recently put up a volunteer staff application form. Reviews from leadership are positive. But I need a place for 4 people to approve or disapprove applicants, and make comments if necessary. In my old application on Google Drive, I was able to do this in the spreadsheet format. How can I do this in JotForm?

    Thanks very much!

    You could do the same in the Google Spreadsheet Dale, by integrating your jotform with it.

    You can see this guide for details on how to: How to Integrate Form with Google Spreadsheet

    The only thing that I would suggest is to create textarea fields and have them hidden on your jotform for the extra fields that you will need in the Google Spreadsheet.

    That way the integration would not break when you add text to it, while if you create additional columns in it, it could.

    If you would like to have these comments as hidden fields on your jotform, I would suggest taking a look at this thread: http://www.jotform.com/answers/500138

    This is the link from the thread that shows this: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/50203880541952 You would need to type staff123 in the box in the top left corner to see the hidden fields.

    Do let us know for which of the 2 you choose to go with and if you need any assistance and we would be happy to assist Dale.
