    Autofill a form and integrating data

    Asked by chinathinksbig on November 06, 2015 at 01:33 AM

    is there anyway, that I can batch fill a form with another excel ?

    I want to not only integrate the submission data, but at the same time trigger the autoresponder email for the newly integrated submissions.

    Please help,

    plus, is there anyway that replying the responder email can change the value of a field of the form?

    I'm afraid that we don't have the exact feature that you are looking for, but using our Import Data App will help you import submissions from spreadsheets into your form:

    Import App: Easily import your Excel or CSV data into JotForm

    However, this will not trigger Autoresponder or Notification emails to be sent. If you want the Autoresponders to be sent, you must either Submit the form, or Edit an existing submission and re-submit the edited form. For the later, you must also enable the option in your Autoresponders to be sent when a submission is edited:

    Replying to an autoresponder can't automatically update your submissions, but you can include an Edit Link in the autoresponder which will allow your users to update their submission at a later date: How to Let Users Update Their Form Submissions at a Later Date.

    Please let us know if you need further clarifications, or kindly open a new support thread for any other questions or concerns you may have, and we'll do our best to help.
