    Editing Google Spreadsheet

    Asked by laurenpapa on March 22, 2015 at 12:05 PM

    Hi, I currently have my forms integrated to Google Spreadsheets. I would like to add another column into that spreadsheet to note when the request has been completed. However, whenever I add this column or type info into another field box it is deleted whenever the sheet updates. Is there a setting that I need to click in order for the sheet to be editable? Or is it not possible to change the spreadsheet because it is coming from Jotform?'

    Thank you

    The Spreadsheet should not be edited, otherwise it will not work, my recommendation would be:

    1) Remove the current integration.

    2. Save Form.

    3. Add a hidden field your form, which will be the column you are trying to add in your Spreadsheet.

    4. Go back to the same form and re-integrate with Google Spreadsheet.
    5. Save the Form
    6. Make a test submission (fill the jotform out and submit it)

    If you need anything else, please open a new thread, we will be glad to assist you.
