    Thank you for your appreciation to our product.

    Regarding the question, I would assume you are referring to the Google Spreadsheet integration, is that right? If you are looking on to separating the choices in the input fields to new columns, unfortunately if cannot be done automatically through our end.

    But it is possible using some formulas in Google Spreadsheet.

    I believe you are looking on to using the SPLIT function, you can learn more about it here: SPLIT on Google Spreadsheet

    Another function that you might be interested is using the IMPORTRANGE, this will allow you to merge separate sheets to one. You can check it here: https://support.google.com/docs/answer/3093340?hl=en.

    I hope this helps.

    Thank you.
