    Display matrix result as a text instead of a table in the form submissions page

    Asked by lizblue on May 22, 2015 at 08:51 AM

    Hi, I have attached a snapshot of what we used to have with adobe Forms. Is this possible to have the submissions displayed in this format with JotForms?

    Just to let you know that I have moved your last reply here as a new thread.

    With regards to your question, unfortunately, it's not possible for now. The result would appear as a table in the form submissions page instead of a text. This is what you mean, right? Please confirm and will submit this thread as a feature request.

    Thanks

    It is displayed as a table on the submissions screen, but the column contains text, instead of the whole matrix.

    As you can see in the image above, "Check List" is a column name in the submissions table. The only difference is the row details which is text, as opposed to having the whole matrix in the submissions table. This is what disorganises the table, as it is quite large to fit into a row/column.

    Hi lizblue,

     

    Thanks for contacting us.

     

    I am wondering if you have a form where you are trying the matrix because I am wondering which matrix field/tool you are using. If you have a form where you are trying this, please give us the link.

     

    Anyways, I created my own form with Matrix field (please see below how I added it).

     

    When I tried to have test submissions, the results are displayed in the submissions page as matrix (not as text) which is quite different from what you have shown us above and as I understand it, you want it to be displayed as matrix. Below are test submissions to my form with matrix (http://www.jotform.com/form/51523854784968).

    Please confirm if that is what you want (you may clone my form). Do let us know if you need further assistance.

     

    Regards.

    Hi,

    The name of the form with the matrix is called "Clone of Bluestone Prop Capture". What I'm trying to achieve is: have the submission details appear as text, instead of matrix

    Hi lizblue,

     

    Thanks for clarifying.

     

    You prefer it the other way around - display matrix as text in a cell of submissions table (as the title says :) ). I was just confused because the matrix in the cells of submission page actually looks good. But I understand that you want it to be displayed as text to save some space and keep the cells of submission table small. I will submit this as a feature request to our development team. However, we cannot assure you of any time frame as of this moment. Our next level of support will be assessing this request based on demands and urgency. We will inform you as soon as this is worked out.

     

    Regards.
