    Ability to look up data into an external source from a form.

    Asked by dorsetholidaylets on September 27, 2016 at 01:37 PM

    Hi Guys the request to look up data in a database or spreadsheet has been requested so many times, I am surprised you have not created something yet. Your product is great but the ability to look up data and pull it into a form would make it even better.

    I organise a large annual bike ride for charity and to be able to populate the form for those that have entered before using their email address would be so beneficial. 


    Best regards

    Unfortunately, we do not have such feature available, you can only import data to a form and it will be reflected in the submissions page. 

    I have also searched in our apps and could not find an app to achieve this; however, I will forward this thread to our second level as a feature request in order to let our developers know about this. 

    Please do not that we cannot provide an ETA about when it could be available, but we will ensure to let you know as soon as we get updates regarding this.
