    Filling out forms for those who can't

    Asked by moaconference on October 31, 2016 at 05:51 PM

    Our organization has moved to an online application for our volunteers.  However, some volunteers will still use the old paper application.  Since we are using jotform specifically to allow us to compile our volunteer's information into a CSV/Excel spreadsheet, is it possible for me (as the admin) to fill out online applications based on the paper applications, so that their information will be included in the CSV spreadsheet? If so, how should I go about doing that?

    Yes, that's possible. You just need to fill the form and submit it just like what your users will be doing.

    Or, you can export your form submissions data to Excel then fill the rows manually with the users information.

    If you need further assistance, let  us know.

    Thank you, EltonCris. I went ahead and tried it out last night using a different email and it worked just fine.  Now I can just notify the paper applicants about what I'm going to do and when the follow up email lands in their inbox, they'll understand where it came from.  :-)
