    Infinite List Widget: Not prepopulating field in Edit Mode when submission is imported from an excel/CSV

    Asked by priyanks on May 15, 2015 at 08:39 AM
    It is working but the data of the widget "Infinite List" is not pre-populating with teh new submission id.
    What is did:

    1) Created a clone form of my actual form.

    2) Done a submission via form url.

    3) downloaded all submissions in xslx format.

    4) deleted all submissions.

    5) imported using import tool - followed the format as described.

    6) tried to edit with new submission id- 

    7) it works but the data in "Infinite list" widget doesn't work anymore.

    I have 2 coloumns(2 textbox per line). What should be the format in the .xlsx file for infinite list when I import the data so that on edit it will be preserved ?

    Thank you for your feedback on this. I will need to escalate this to our widget team to have it checked. They could provide you a format in the excel or CSV file that should suit the Infinite List widget. We'll update you as soon as we hear any news.

    Apologies for the inconvenience.

    Unfortunately, I'm unable to provide an expected date to this as this is handled by a different team. But I'll notify them regarding the urgency of this matter.

    Thank you for your understanding.
