    Can i populate a form from an excel file?

    Asked by KonsusOp on March 29, 2016 at 06:42 PM

    Say i have form1 that is filled in by me. The entire result goes to a googledocs spreadsheet. But in the next step i would like to have form2 (or some fields from it) to be populated with the data from the form1. Is that possible with JotForm?

    If I understand correctly, you want to automatically populate a form with the data from the google docs spreadsheet? Unfortunately that is currently not possible in Jotform.

    However, you can skip the spreadsheet and instead pre-populate the form 2 with the data from form 1. Here's a guide that can help you set it up: How to Automatically Pass Form Data to Another Form.

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.
