Connector Specifics

Object Peculiarities

FormSubmissionAnswers and UserSubmissionAnswers

These tables contain the submitted answers to the forms. When selecting from them, the submitted answers may return in different result columns depending on the question type. The majority of the submitted answers return in the Answers column.

Folders and Subfolders

The root folder properties are stored returned in the RootFolder table. This table is read-only.

The Folders table contains the folder. The subfolders list is stored in the Subfolders field as an array. For user convenience, the array values of the Subfolders field are represented as a separate Subfolders table. This table stores the subfolders of the first nesting level. The folders of further nesting levels are stored in the Subfolders field of the Subfolders table.

You can move the forms from one folder to another when performing the UPDATE operation against the Folders and Subfolders tables. To do this, you have to map the Forms field, providing the Id’s of the forms to be moved in the following format: ["223172341365349", "223172341365350"].


The records are not actually deleted when performing the DELETE operation against the Forms table. Their status changes to Deleted in this case.


When importing data to the FormSubmissions table, you must map the Answers field and provide its values in JSON object format as pairs “question number”: “answer”, for example: {"1": "answer to question 1", "2": "Samantha James", "3": "42"}.
