    I work for an organization interested in using your product to collect records of species observations in Ontario. I had 3 questions I wanted to ask:


    1) When forms are submitted, we receive an email. Is it possible (maybe through a plugin) to have records compiled in a spreadsheet?

    2) Assuming records can be compiled in a spreadsheet, can we ensure that each records is kept associated with the file uploaded with its form? If so, how would/could this work?

    3) The Address Map Locator looks like a really cool plugin (,

    Is it possible to select an area on its map and have the lat/long fields automatically filled? Currently, this only happens (in the demo) when I enter an address. Otherwise, it defaults to an address in Alaska. Is there someone else I should contact about that?

    Thanks for your time!

    For the first question, yes that is possible, you can setup email notifications and/or autoresponders in your forms.

    Please check the following guides:

    Setting up email notifications 

    Creating a Form Autoresponder


    For the other questions that you have, we advise our users to open one question per thread so that we can focus on it better, I went ahead and have your questions separated. Please refer to the following links:

    We will address them shortly.

    Thank you.
