Auto-create form

I have a sheet that has about 100 columns, the column title is the category, the first row is a question. I know I could export it and concantate the header + first row, but that look bad and would interfere with reporting, etc.


It there a way to create a form where it uses the first row as the "help text" or some other way to auto-populate that text for each field's "help text"?

    Webforms can be used to add new rows and data to your sheet, they cannot take existing data from a row and display it. Web forms have a built in help text option where you can add this information. When editing the form, select the field and the right panel will have a section for help text.

    Thanks Travis - I was hoping to have this done automagically instead of having to do it one by one.
