Can I export only certain columns of submission data from Formstack?

This is possible using the following process. Here's how you do it:

1) Access the Table Settings on your Submissions page and move the fields you'd like to export over to the 'Visible Columns' column. Move all other fields to the 'Hidden Columns' column. Click 'Save'.

2) Click the 'Share' button and choose 'Tables & Charts'. Click 'Done'

3) Click 'Share Link' and open the link in a new browser tab or window.

4) In the new window, click 'Export All' and choose the appropriate file type.

This will export only the visible columns you chose.

  • Why is this so hard? With all of the other configurability of Formstack, which is really great, it is impossible to imagine why this is so complicated. We were ready to go live with a new process next week and because of the utter lack of ability to configure any kind of export of data we may have to stop the migration and go back to Google Forms, which would be a major disappointment.
