Can I import an existing spreadsheet into JotForm?Asked by mstand on October 06, 2016 at 04:45 PM
We have a department contacts directory. I want to create a form so that employees can update their own information, but I want to be able to upload the information we already have entered into a spreadsheet. Is that possible?
I'm not sure I properly understood what you're trying to achieve.
You said "I want to create a form so that employees can update their own information, but I want to be able to upload the information we already have entered into a spreadsheet"
When respondents (in your case, your employees) fill out a form, each submission they do will be a new record/submission in your account.
If what you're aiming to do is have all your existing data (from a spreadsheet) to be imported to your JotForm Submission data, then have your employees update those, then try the Import App to import your spreadsheet.
We have a very detailed guide on how to use this app: Import-App-Easily-import-your-Excel-or-CSV-data-into-JotForm
I highly recommend you take your time reviewing the guide above, specifically step #5, where you have to check the formatting needed for the column headers.
