    That is an old app and is not available anymore, now you can export your submissions to a Google Spreadsheet .

    However, if you want to download an Excel file, you can refer to this guide,next you can upload the file to Dropbox :

    I hope that helps.

    Please pass this solution on to others seeking to automatically download form submissions to excel, as it has worked well for me:

    Use the google spreadsheet app and install its Data Everywhere add-on, as well as the associated Data Everywhere add-in for excel, then create a feed in the google spreadsheet and insert it in the excel spreadsheet.

    This overcomes the JotForm limitation of not being able to export automatically to excel.

    **Caveat: At this time Data Everywhere's auto-publishing feature publishes data from on format to another once every hour. If you need faster than that I would consider using an alternative solution. Reason I'm trying so hard is because I need to use visual basic...and that doesn't work with google sheets.

    Dear ckemmann,

    JotForm on the forum, I read with interest your solution to trigger the production of the report of bid JotForm from an Excel workbook VBA. However that mean "create a feed in the google spreadsheet and insert it in the excel spreadsheet". I'm not familiar Google Sheet or Data everywhere, I installed according to your advice. Could you provide details of your solution, I can not implement.
    Thank you in advance.
    Regards
