Exporting Form Data

Last Updated: Feb 14, 2019 04:40PM PST
Important Note: This article is about exporting forms in CSV format, which allows access to the raw data in the forms. To learn about exporting forms as PDF files, read the article on downloading and printing forms.
GoFormz can export your form data to the standard comma-separated values (CSV) format. These files can then be opened with Microsoft Excel or other spreadsheet and data analysis software, where you can manipulate and analyze the data.

How to export

In the Forms Tab, select the checkboxes next to the forms you want to export. A Bulk Actions menu will appear at the top. Expand this menu, and click Export. When GoFormz generates your export, you will be prompted to save it to your computer. Don’t forget to click the Save button to finish the export operation!

Export format

Each row in the exported CSV represents a form, with the exception of the first column which contains column headings. So if you export a single form, the CSV will have 2 rows, if you export 5 forms it will have 6 rows, etc.
The columns of the CSV correspond to form fields, with the exception of the first 3 columns which are:
  • Name: The name of the form.
  • CompletedDate: The date and time on which the form was completed. If the form was completed and reopened multiple times, this will be the time of the first completion.
  • LastUpdatedDate: The last time that the form was modified in any way.
Note that only text-based form fields are exported. The following field types will not be exported: Table, Image, Location, Signature, and Sketch. Shared fields also will not be exported, with the exception of the three mentioned above (Name, CompletedDate, LastUpdatedDate).
