    Importing Excel Template data as Form Template

    Asked by scienceinabox on April 27, 2015 at 11:57 PM

    Is there a way of importing data from an Excel spreadsheet as fields to be incorporated in the form rather than as submissions?


    I have tried using the import facility but then end up with 100s of submissions rather than catalogue items.


    Many thanks,

    Hi Catherine,

    Unfortunately it is not possible at this time.

    External templates like the Excel is not possible to import into the Form Builder as a form template.

    You will have to use the Form Builder to create the form. You can use your Excel template instead as the guide when building the form.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
