    How to customize .xls submission report

    Asked by ccomer on May 21, 2015 at 12:50 PM


    I'm aware that submissions can be downloaded to Excel, but I'm looking for a different format than how it's exported. Can each submission be dowloaded just as it's shown here, in a grid format? When I use the export to Excel function it exports all submissions in a linear format versus a grid, where each line has it's own set of columns in the report.

    Unfortunately, up to now it is not possible to create a customized .xls report. However you are able to generate a .pdf submission report which is editable and I think this may suite your necessities.

    You are also able to generate an online Grid Listing report, please read the following guide that shows you step by step how to achieve this: http://www.jotform.com/help/105-How-to-create-a-Grid-Listing-report.

    Let me add this as a feature request so our developers will be able to consider this in the future.

    The ticket has been assigned to a developer, However I cannot give you a window time as of when this feature will be ready.

    We will put in contact with you through this same thread, as soon as this feature is ready.
