JotForm google docs integration

Google Docs Integration: Send Responses to Google Spreadsheets. Instantly.

We are very excited to announce the new integration with Google Docs. You can now get JotForm to send form responses to a Google Docs spreadsheet instantly. 


What I love about this integration is that it is so unbelievably fast. When you submit a form, the entries show up on your Google Docs spreadsheet before the thank you page is rendered fully on the other window.

JotForm development team uses Google Docs daily to track things and discuss ideas. So, we are very excited about this integration. I have personally stopped using Excel/Word many years ago and I've been using Google Docs instead. It is fast, simple and available on any device I use. 

This integration is especially great for JotForm users who wanted to create advanced reports with their form submissions. Google Spreadsheets has many great features such as gadgets, charts and calculations from data.

Setting up an integration with Google Docs for your forms is quick and easy. On the Form Builder, click on Integrations button on the toolbar, and then to the Google Docs option.

On the first screen of the wizard, you will be asked to authenticate JotForm to access your Google Docs account.

Next, choose a folder name where you would like this new Google Spreadsheet document to be created. You may also change the name of the document on this step.

That’s all. Your integration is all set, and a file should be created on your Google Docs already!

When you receive submissions on your form, they will be instantly pushed to this file.


Give it a try today! And let us know if you have any comments, questions or suggestions.

    Can you send the Jotform data to automatically update more than one Google Drive Spreadsheet?

  • hriviereplatt

    I had a working google doc integration which broke (I think because I moved the Google Folder). I am trying to reintegrate and am now getting a failed integration message or it is telling me it is integrated to an undefined spreadsheet. Help!

  • JR

    I have integrated the form with google docs. However, if I add a column, future submissions are not posted to the right column. How can I have my submissions data map to the correct fields?

  • mattosborne

    I have tried to edit the sheet in google to add custom charts etc.
    However Jotform resets the sheet

  • att33

    We have been integrated with google spreadsheets for some time. The integration seems to have broken a bit in the past week however, as the form no longer passes the date of submission to our spreadsheet. All other data is still being uploaded to our sheet however. We just have a blank column for the dates of forms submitted in the past week or so. Please advise.

  • SCMarket

    I've integrated google spreadsheets successfully in the past, but I'm currently unable to click on "integrations." Please advise.

    Thank you

  • en32

    The date is not reporting on my google doc all the info is.

  • asgashwin

    can we have the attachment link pointing towards the google drive instead of jot form?
    e.g.instead of...'http://www.jotform.me/uploads/....pdf
    can we have:
    https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-Ow0bhoQ3ZlWXM3UGFRcU04S3c&....

  • erikroberts

    What if we already have a Google Doc that we would like to start incorporating this into? Is it possible to do that or is the only way to create a new doc? The reason I ask is that we have some analysis logic in the spreadsheet that helps us analyze responses we get.

  • Anjum

    Can I receive or send text to any cell phone if someone edit Google spreadsheet instead of email notification?

  • msmarniece

    Hello thank you I figured all of that out.. BUT now how can I re-submit all these forms so that they are now in my new email address? Because now that all the things are on the new email drive, the forms are of course empty!!

    The only thing I can think of doing would be to share from my old email address?

  • msmarniece

    Hi!! So, I originally made a Wedding contract, and intergraded it with Google Docs ( worked perfect) I then went a step futher and duplicated ( made a copy) of the wedding contract and then Changed it and its contents to my "Boudoir" contract.. It is now sending all of my boudoir contracts to the wedding documents Google Doc Folder and stressing me out!! HELP? Also I would like to change it from the current email to my new business email...

  • Robert Helvie

    The Google Drive and especially Google spreadsheets integration is very useful. However is there anyway to get a submitted image to actually display in the Google spreadsheet instead of having only a link? (Perhaps in a thumbnail format?)
    Thanks.

  • AndreaHillsamer

    My form is currently connect to a Google Doc folder, but I can't figure out where this folder exists. It is possible it is connected to someone who no longer works here. I need to be able to manage the responses through Google Docs. Is there any way you can un-integrate it, then re-integrate it to my Google Drive?

  • julienmery

    Can I have a check box with multiple selections trigger multiple submission in order to generate multiple submission lines in the google spreadsheet, each with only one of the selected options showing?

  • backjan72

    There is a big need to make calculations inside forms?

    Does Jotform has any way to give numbers to multiple choices.

  • Pranav

    How may I have the data that is filled through a particular form to go to multiple spreadsheets according to the input, or to different sheets in the same spreadsheet?

  • ChallengesWW

    Hi guys,

    Not sure what the above problem was (might be that I was working via Remote Host), but have switched PCs and the authentication has now gone through. Very impressed with the initial results, especially considering JotForm is free - have to commend you for your good work.

  • ChallengesWW

    Hi there,

    I started compiling a form and am impressed with how user-friendly your tool is. However, when I go to authenticate my Google accounts (Drive and Spreadsheet)and Accept JotForm's request for access permissions, I'm greeted with a blank page. I've tried all my browsers (IE, Chrome, Firefox, Safari), both signed in and out of my Google accounts, but with the same result. Could you please help me discover what is going wrong, as it is enormously frustrating to have such a potentially-useful tool fall short at the last minute.

  • bluesteelfootball

    Plz help my integration with google drive spreadsheet is not working .

    plz help

  • Mick Davies

    Can I send automatic receipt confirmation to the person using the booking form that their entry has been received?

  • drstewart

    I'm getting a lot of Chinese text/graphic. How do I get rid of it. The table is in English, but the headings above the table are in some kind of language.

  • jeweloh

    Hi,

    I'm also getting the problem that it does not bring submissions to the google doc after the initial set up. The first time I open it, I see the submissions in the excel. But after that, it doesn't refresh instantly.

    Can you please help?

  • Bill Lincoln

    Is it possible to have a user fill out the form, then make a payment while in the form - and have the form determine if the paypal payment was successful, and then record all the data and the approval/failure of the payment into a google doc?

  • sbrand

    I need clients to "lookup" old data and display the form with the data so they can check it, make revisions and RE-save the form data. How can I create something that does this lookup and then displays the form with the existing data?

  • guest_30133310276036

  • LBCTruth

    I am trying to collect visitor contact information with my jotform and transfer it to my Google contacts. Is there a way to get my jotform contact list into my Google contacts? Or, am I able to setup the Google docs spreadsheet created from my jotform to import cleanly into my Google contacts? I used the created Google docs spreadsheet and exported to a .csv file then imported to my Google contacts. It got the first & last names and emails in the correct fields but it dumped just about everything else into the "notes" field in my Google contacts?!?

  • Ankush

    Google doc form -Is it possible mail has to trigger to user when i edit concern row of spread sheet.

  • guppyd

    Google Docs Integration is great!!
    But when I use the submissions data to create a googleMap widget, it can't be publish in Free text with html codes.
    Any suggessions?

  • Suyog Bhobe

    Jotform is pretty neat. This is complementary to what we have done at delighta.com. You can enter data in your Google spreadsheet via SMS from as many mobile phones as you want. We believe we are the first company to successfully integrate SMS with Google spreadsheet and calendar.

  • Mo Nabil

    Would I be able to send responses from multiple forms to the same spreadsheet?

  • halh

    One of the advantages of the google integration "workaround" you proposed in an earlier post (Jotform HTML report updated every n minutes) is that the first row of the spreadsheet is empty, the form header starts on row 2 and the spreadsheet fills from row 3 down. This very convenient as I can test for the number of entries in a column at the head of the column and use conditional formatting to indicate that I've exceeded capacity in a class.

    Can the starting row of the Jotform Google Docs integrated report be specified to allow the same functionality without interfering with the subsequent automatic data entry?

  • geneseepharmacists

    Also, is there some sort of settings I have to adjust to the Google spreadsheet. When I fill out the JotForm, the data is not pushing to the Google spreadsheet.

  • geneseepharmacists

    Can you move the folder that is created (i.e. I want to place the JotForm folder for registration for our golf outing into the Golf Outing google docs folder)? Or, does it have to remain outside any subfolder to map the data correctly?

  • shay3624

    Great..i just tried it and it works great~ Make sure you are already logged into your gmail account..i think this might help some.

  • Laura Bowman

    this is phenomenal! thank you! i have been transferring manually to my excel spreadsheet and it can be tedious. awesome!

  • Kevin Pierce

    This is halfway working for me. It only fills out some of the questions on my G Docs spreadsheet. The JotForm email I get has everything filled out but multiple fields don't go through to the spreadsheet.

  • kl.vanw

    Umm... can't authenticate for google docs. Click on the green Authenticate button and I get this:

    Error: redirect_uri_mismatch
    The redirect URI in the request: https://www.jotform.com/api/google/ did not match a registered redirect URI

  • darnold953

  • sander_j4s

    Is it possible to link multiple forms to a single Google Docs Spreadsheet, but on different sheets? this comes in handy when people use google apps script, and need the same code for multiple spreadsheets

  • victorataide

    Very Good !!! Excellent.

  • Станислав

    Здорово!
    Давно пора =))

  • 405media

    Google drive is part of google docs... two different things... I'm still wanting support for google drive to have form attachments go to google drive, just like they do for dropbox.

  • cychorus

    Great!
    Still would love to see a Calendar sync option. Where the customer can pick time slots and it would update google calendar.

  • wpdmedia

    This is GREAT news!! Nothing better than integration all in one place none stop rock in shop. I Love it.

  • tampopo

    I love that this integrates with Google Docs! Thanks for adding that feature!

    Since integrating, I've added some new sections to my form, which are not showing up in my Google Doc. I'd rather not reintegrate because I spent a lot of time personalizing the Google Doc, so I'm wondering if there's something I need to do to for the new sections of the form to show up.

    thanks!

  • internetweek

    Not getting any results here either. All I see is submission date

  • TGianmarcoT
