    I need the results of a form to be emailed to a single location as an excel file. Can you help?

    Asked by dsinclair on August 12, 2016 at 12:45 PM

    My current form downloads the excel file to the user desktop - but what I need it to do is package it and send it to an email address.

    I'm a designer not a programmer so this is hard for me.

    Though it is not possible to attach an excel report of your submission data directly to the emails, it is possible to send your users a link to download the current report.  Create an excel report:


    Then forward the URL of the report to anyone who would need to download it.

    It is also possible to send submissions directly to a Google Docs spreadsheet:


    The sheet would be updated any time a submission is received.

    Thanks I'll give it a try.
    Can I specify the URL of the report location link or is it only within
    your servers?

    No, it is only within our servers.
