    How to disable Infinite list widget column name from being exported to google spreadsheet?

    Asked by blakefam on May 13, 2016 at 11:52 PM

    When using the infinite list widget I insert "Name of medication{600}" into the column name field. This both tells the user what information to provide and sets a limit on the width of the field. This works as described.

    However, when the user submits the data, the data gathered by the google spreadsheet includes the hint text "Name of medication" for every entry in the infinite list.

    How do I set up the widget so that "Name of medication" does not get exported to the spreadsheet and only the text entered by the user is exported.

    Hello blakefam,

    Do you mean to say that you do not want to display the name of the infinite list column in the integrated google spreadsheet?

    Unfortunately it is currently not possible to remove the column name only form the google spreadsheet. Its actually not the hint text but the name of the column.

    Let me send a feature request to our backend team.We will get back to you as soon as we have any update form them.

    Thank you!
