Can I have the documents requested in my form saved in a specific order when integrated to Google Drive?

    We use our forms for a nominations for an award show. We ask for supporting material like reference letters, CV, financial information ect. When these documents are saved into the Google Drive Folder we integrate with, they are saved alphabetically based on how the person submitting named their files. It becomes hard for our judges to go through all of the material and find a certain document when each nominees package in a different order.

    Can we make it so a reference letter is first, then CV, then financials, etc.?

    In JotForm the are displayed in the order received.  The PDF copy of the submission data that is forwarded to Google Drive should also have the uploads listed in the order of the fields in the form.  The are likely forwarded in that order to Google Drive and then sorted by Drive.  I do not believe this can be changed on our end.

    I would recommend the judges use the submission PDF and click the links from there.  It will always be the same order in the PDF.
