    Asked by purplegroup on February 21, 2012 at 02:20 PM

    Is this link that is being generated constantly updated with new submissions? Or is it only capturing current submissions before the final step of the wizard report?

    This is a re-post of a comment on How to Create an Excel Report?

    Hello @celebratelife,

    Its probably best you open a new thread for your issue & provide a link to the Excel doc you are sharing in this way. Provide as much detail as regards what you are seeing as opposed to what you expect to see & we will take a look into any problem for you.

    Hi There,

    Quick question on this topic. Does the excel sheet update automatically with new submissions or do I need to download it again each time?

    Hello cheerbrandz1,

    When you create an excel report, you will be given with a report URL. Clicking on this URL will download all the current submissions to your local system. This excel is not dynamic and will update itself with the new submissions as it is downloaded in your local system.

    You may like to take a look at our integration with google spreadsheet which will update automatically with the new submissions. The following guide should help you:  http://www.jotform.com/help/228-How-to-Integrate-Form-with-Google-Spreadsheet

    There are other reports type which you can generate and they will update automatically as soon as new submissions are received in your form. Take a look at the following reports:




    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
