Submissions are not properly displayed in Google Docs (Drive). What to do?

Submissions are not properly displayed in Google Docs (Drive). What to do?

This usually happens when you have edited your spreadsheet after you have integrated your form with Google Docs (Drive) and received submissions. Once you have received your first submission, a new spreadsheet is created in your Google Drive account with the name of your form. If you edit the spreadsheet, new entries will no longer be properly displayed in Google Docs.

To fix this, export your submissions in CSV, copy its content and paste it in new spreadsheet in Google Drive.

In the future, if you want to edit your spreadsheet, you’ll need to follow these steps:

1. First, change the names in the column header (label) and make a submission.
2. Reorder the columns as you want and submit the form again. This will prevent the integration from delivering submissions that are not properly displayed in your Google spreadsheet.

    I have linked my registration form to google drive. I want to display the google spreadsheet on my wix website. However, although I need all the information on my registration form, I only want to display a limited amount of that information on my website. can I create a duplicate sheet with limited information, or will that sever the conncections and prevent auto filling?

    • Hi Judd!

      You may use the option to hide certain columns on your Google spreadsheet. The changes will be applied automatically on the web page where the spreadsheet is embedded. Just remember to enable the option Automatically republish when changes are made. For more information, you may contact Google support.

      As for your 123FormBuilder account, you may contact our support specialists at support@123formbuilder.com whenever you require assistance.

      Thanks!

I have anouther 123form in the same site – and it work as should.

    • Hello!

      The new doc is not populated immediately after each submission. It takes about 1 to 5 minutes. Have you checked your doc later to see if the submission has been passed? If you encounter further problems with the integration, please contact our Support Team at support@123formbuilder.com, via our contact form or on Live Chat (9:00 AM – 5:00 PM GMT+2). They will help ASAP.

      Thanks!
