    Google Spreadsheet Integration is Broken

    Asked by cbcadvisors on July 29, 2016 at 01:32 PM

    Hi, I am working with a registration form here and have tried many different things to get the google spreadsheet integration to work. I have tried cloning a form, creating a new form, re-integrating with google spreadsheets etc. Here is my form I originally made. I never edited the spreadsheet that the form was integrated with. And even when I try to completely start over now, it won't work with my google account. What is wrong?

    The crazy thing is, it was working fine for months, until today, it broke and does not receive the data from the new form submissions. PLEASE HELP. 

    Here is the form url: https://form.jotform.com/61585612771157

    Here is the spreadsheet url: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=1sAiSEMPCTFdUykGU5poUHIWZRuLV6YuTbf0dUsTMbhk

    Hello cbcadvisors,

    I'm sorry for the trouble caused to you.

    There seems to be a technical glitch which is causing this issue where new submissions are not being copied to integrated google spreadsheet. I am reporting it to our backend team. We will get back to you as soon as we have any update from them.

    Thank you!

    Is this error still occuring?  I have cloned your form and populated a spreadsheet with no issue.  It might have been a delay waiting a free google worker if there was lots of backlog.

    Thanks a lot,

    The error has happened again. Is this something that is going to keep happening? if so i need to change to a different form submission site.

    The integration should be working properly once again.  Any new submission will update the sheet with all current submissions.  All new submissions should be forwarded to the appropriate sheet immediately after receiving the submission.
