    Excel Reports: How to change the order of the fields

    Asked by promisedlands on October 27, 2016 at 06:25 AM

    I have multiple forms. Part of the filled in items are everytime the same (name, email, stuff like that).

    Can I change the order in the Excel reporting? For instance: I have 8 forms with different questions on each, but all have somewhere in the form a question about name and email. I want to generate excel reports for all 8 forms that I start everytime with the recurring data (name, email etc).

    This is a re-post of a comment on How to Create an Excel Report?

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to change the order of the fields through JotForm. Reports are always generated with the existing order of the fields. You can do that on Excel by moving the columns tough.

    Another alternative should be changing the order on the Form Builder. Moving the name and email fields to the top should do it but I do not know if you are willing to change the current configuration of your forms.

    Please contact us if you need any further assistance.
