    Google Spreadsheet Integration: When submission is edited, the edit link in Google Spreadsheet becomes broken

    Asked by usmicroscrew on June 24, 2016 at 05:34 PM

    When a line is created in google sheets the "edit submission" hyperlink is alive and well.  If I click that link and edit the form then resubmit, the Edit Link data cell gets an apostrophe in front of the link, basically commenting out the hyperlink.  If I delete the apostrophe then all is well again.  If I edit the form again, it once again puts the apostrophe back in.  Bug?

    I was able to replicate mentioned issue on my sample form when I edited submission inside of Google Spreadsheet. Yes, this is a bug. 

    I will escalate this issue to our developers and we will inform you via this thread once this issue is resolved.

    Hi, This has now been fixed.  Editing a submission will no longer break the edit link in the google spreadsheet.
