    @dromaguera

    There many ways that you can backup your form submissions on a spreadsheet format.

    1. Backup to Excel or CSV

    Select a form with submissions and click the Submission button above to access the Submissions page as shown on the image below:

    You may download your form submissions as .xls, .pdf or CSV:

    2. Using Google Spreadsheet Integration, you are able to backup forms and submissions as well . Please refer to this thread How to Integrate Form with Google Spreadsheet.

    Note: When using the Google Spreadsheet integration it does not take your previous submission data but your future submissions only prior to the integration.

    If you need further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
