I have multiple existing typeform surveys and I want to pull ALL of the responses into dovetail, however with Zapier it seems I can only pull in reponses that are submitted now my zap is set up. Other than exporting the typeform data as a spreadsheet and manually adding the surveys to Dovetail (painful) is there a way to backdate it? Im very new to zapier.

Hi @curios 

Zaps work when turned ON for new data going forward.

Best way to transfer old Typeform entries will likely be a manual export/prep/import.

If you want to potentially automate the exported data, then check out this video:

Hi all! In addition to what Troy mentioned, I wanted to pop back into this thread with extra resources our support team provided in the related ticket. 🙂 

At the moment, Zaps are only built to look at new and incoming information, and won't process existing data. You can read a bit more about this here: https://zapier.com/help/create/basics/why-isnt-my-zap-triggering-on-existing-records
 
This means that data created before the Zap is turned on won't be pulled in automatically.
 
That said, if you're able to export that data as a spreadsheet or CSV file, you may be able to "import" them using a separate Zap. This guide has some great visual references for getting that workaround set up: https://zapier.com/help/create/basics/bulk-import-data-into-zaps
