    I presume here that you would like to add the Spreadsheet widget to your jotform?

    If so please take a look at the following guide: How to Add a Widget to your Form

    If that is not what you have meant Karen, do let us know more and we would be happy to assist.

    Hi Ben,

    Thank you for all the replies. 

    I have an excel sheet with a list of our business requirements which I am looking to verify can be done within jotform. 

    This is what I would like to send to you.

    Thank you,

    Karen

    You can use the JotForm Import Data App to import the Excel data into your form submission data.

    Check it from here http://apps.jotform.com/app/import_data

     

    But just in case what you actually wanted is to upload the Excel into JotForm and then create a link to the Excel data that can be accessed on the form, then, you  can do that also.

    You can upload the Excel file into your form using the Upload field and then use the URL link of the uploaded file and display it on the form for other forms users to be able to access the Excel data.

    Hope this help. Let us know how we can be of further assistance.

    Thanks.

    Hi,  I do not think we are understanding one another...  so sorry. 

    I have a list of user requirements which I am trying to determine if JotForm can fulfill.  (I am trying to find the best replacement for FormCentral).

    My list is in Excel and I want to send that in for review to have one of your representatives confirm the functionality.  As I cannot seem to do this, I have attached them to the end of this post.

    I really appreciate everyone's help!!

    Thank you,

    Karen

    Hello Karen,

    Thank you for the clarification.

    So it was actually not about having Excel data into the form..

    Although your list of functionality inquiry was a lot, I checked each and I can confirm to you an affirmative that ALL of them are possible and available in JotForm.

    I suggest you also check this on our JotForm Blog
