    In google drive integration does each submission need to have a sub folder?

    Asked by couplaguysandgals on January 28, 2017 at 11:58 PM

    --Does each submission need to have a sub folder?

    --Does it need to include the PDF summary?

    --May the files be loaded into one large folder with all other files?

    --Is it possible to assign an automatic numbering system to the file name?

    Thank you!

    --Does each submission need to have a sub folder?

    Not necessarily. If you assigned a static or fixed folder name as the submission folder, each of the submission will be collected within that folder only. The fixed folder name though will always be below the main/root folder.

    --Does it need to include the PDF summary?

    Yes. The submission will always have an included PDF report summary.

    --May the files be loaded into one large folder with all other files?

    The uploaded files can be uploaded on 1 folder only. This is the static or fixed sub folder you will assign as the custom folder name of the submission.

    --Is it possible to assign an automatic numbering system to the file name?

    Unfortunately no. You cannot change the filename of uploaded file upon submissions. You can only change the folder name you wanted the uploaded files to be collected.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    How do you assign a static or fixed folder name? When I complete the
    Google Drive integration, it requires both a folder and some sort of
    qualifier. That qualifier seems to be why it creates a new subfolder each
    submission.
    Thank you.

    Type in the Folder Name and unselect the field ignoring the error. Example: 

     

    Just please note that when doing the integration this way, the PDFs will be named after it. You will see the PDFs with the same name and the only way to know its submitter is to open the file. Ex:
