    Is there any way I can populate form from the google spreadsheet or previous jotform submissions?

    If you are trying to import submission data from your Google Spreadsheet or from your JotForm account, this is unfortunately not currently possible.  Our forms do not have the ability to query different sources and import data into the form.

    If I have misunderstood what you are looking for, let us know and we will be happy to have another look.

    It is a very critical and basic feature to allow anyone to read data from the database(spreadsheet or jotform submission). When you are planning to add this feature ?

    We have attached a feature request ticket to this thread about the data fetching from a remote source, but there is no ETA for when it will be implemented. We will let you know if we have any updates on this.

    Note, that form can be set to an Autofill mode, so it saves the previous answers in user's browser.
