    Export Data with fieldname

    Asked by skipy on January 26, 2016 at 08:31 AM


    Hello Support,

    we need to create several forms, that can be exported. But it is critical for our usecase, that the exported data has specific fieldnames. I found out that it is possible to set a fieldname in the settings (see attachement).


    What possibilites do I have to export the data with theese specific fieldnames as "column-name"?

    I need something like CSV, Excel, JSON, .... BUT it HAS to have the predefined fieldnames (that are different from the displayed label in the form-frontend).


    Thank you very much for your help.

    As far as I know, we do not have an option to export the form data with internal field name {tags}. Although, if you use a Combine Submissions App, you can download your data in CSV with Question Type columns.


    It is also possible to parse JSON data from API response, but the name {tags} are not provided.


    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.
