This feature is available in the Branch, Tree and Forest plans. Check our plans.
Note: Data entered with Subform-widgets is not supported by the Google Sheet Update integration.
1. Import a Google Sheet
Import a Google Sheet as a data source. Here you can read how.
2. Create a Form
Go to the MoreApp Platform and select your form. Access the Pro widgets tab and add the Search-widget to your inspection form. Click on the pencil to configure the widget. Use the Label to type the name of the widget and choose the Data source you just imported.
Add a Date-widget. In that way the date is also added to the sheet.
Add a Radio-widget in order to set the status. The options can be: Done, Not Done, N/A.
Once you have added these widgets, edit the Search-widget again. Filter by Status and select the list of colors you want to show depending on the selected option. Keep in mind that the Query needs to be the same as the status added to your data source so the color is properly assigned.
Note: Read more about the configuration of the Search-widget here.
3. Configure the Integration
If your form is ready, you can move on to the configuration of the integration.
Go to the Integrations tab. Then click on Add Integration.
Select the Google Sheets Cell Update integration and click on Add.
We configured the integrations as following, to show you an example:
With the first integration, you will update the Status in the sheet. Add the Spreadsheet ID of the same data source that you used to import. Fill in the Sheet name. Pick the Search-widget and the Radio-widget. Last, fill in the Column name to update.
With the second integration, you will update the Date column in the sheet.
Click Validate and Save & Publish.
4. Complete a Form
Now it's time to test! After filling in a form. The next time you open the form, you see the Status and Date updated.
5. Internet Connection
Since the data is sent real-time, an internet connection is needed. We are happy to explain why.
- The app sends data to the Platform, where the integration is executed that sends the data to the sheet.
- The sheet is automatically imported into the Platform every 15 minutes.
- The app downloads the new version every 15 minutes. This can be accelerated manually by refreshing in the app.
In this way, the correct data is always available in the app.
6. No Internet Connection
What can you do if there is no internet connection on location?
- Make sure you connect to the internet after an inspection.
- After fifteen minutes the data of the inspection will arrive in the Platform.
- Then, click on refresh (white arrow in the top right corner) in the app and you are ready for the next inspection!
