How can we enter the data sent to us over email as if the user filled out the form?

    We did an online form and also mailed survey to members with no email address on file. Those who returned it by mail, how can I manually enter their responses so that they are integrated with the ones submitted online? Thanks!

    The easiest way to get the data from the email to your form is to open the form and fill it out manually.This will make it seem as if they were the ones filling it out themselves.Of course, if you wanted to do it in some other manner, do let us know.

    I did that with one, but if I try to fill it out again with the next written form, my previous entry is pre-filled in the fields.  will I have to delete each field and enter the next one -- over and over, or can I get a blank one and start over?  Seems a little tedious.  

    Just checking.  Thank you for your quick response to the original question.

    To my understanding, you are trying to enter the responses from members with no email addresses, which means they have submitted their responses through a regular(snail) mail, is that correct?

    What I would suggest is you use the direct link of your form which you can find here:

    Or

    I would also suggest you try disable/turn-off the fields set as required so you will not have conflicts(if there is) filling the form with data coming from your members mail.

    Then, open your Form URL/Form Link on your web browser, fill it up with data and submit the form.

     

    I hope this helps. If you need any further assistance, please let us know and we will be glad to help you anytime. Thank you.
