Is it possible to export a sheet as forms?

We often need to publish a report pulling data from a selection of columns, for a single row, sequentially on a page, and then the next row, etc (I.e. laid out like a document, not a spreadsheet). We currently use the Smartsheet add-on in google docs to do this, but it is frustrating and time consuming. Essentially what we are producing is the same as a 'Form' but data is coming from the sheet, rather than going in. Is there a way to export Forms in this way?

Any guidance or suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Tim.

    Hi @[email protected]

    To add to Genevieve’s excellent answer.

    We could use the URL-query feature to replicate the form but from the sheet.

    When you click in the URL created with the help from the URL-query, it will open the Form layout with fields already filled in.


    Make sense?

    Would that work/help?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!
