    Google Spreadsheet Integration: Not updating spreadsheet after submission, possible delay of 40 minutes or more

    Asked by daviddrew on September 07, 2016 at 11:23 AM

    Just to make you all aware of this but there is a 40+ minute delay between jotform submissions and the submission showing up in your integrated google sheet.  This seems to periodically happen.  This is not regarding when you first integrate a sheet, but only when a sheet is integrated and a new submission is made.

    I wasn't able to confirm the 40+ minute delay, but I do see that the Google Spreadsheet is not being updated immediately once a new submission is made. Here's a screencast showing the problem:


    Let me forward this to our developers to have it checked and fixed. Apologies for the inconvenience.

    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.

    I have the same problem. Since yesterday my google spreadsheet does not update after compilation of my form. I have also already tried to remove the integration and re-create it but doesn't work. Is there anything I can do?

    This issue appears to still be ongoing.  I have the same problem with a form submission completed at 09:41 today, and it still hasn't updated the integrated Google Sheet.
