    Asked by farhan1234 on May 13, 2017 at 04:16 AM

    Hi, please anybody help me to solve this problem.

    I already authenticate my JotForm with my google drive.

    So, when people using my JotForm and they click on submit button it will automatically create a pdf folder for me in my drive but the folder name is refer to the date and time.

    My question is :

    How if i want the folder name is create automatically by refer to other identity such as name? Because i have a lot of people who will use my form.


    Thank you!

    Please refer to our user guide: How-to-Integrate-a-Form-with-Google-Drive

    If you click the "Remove Integration" to change the Submission Folder Name, the old integration will be removed. But the Google Drive Link is still the same, so, there are two folders that will be created. The old Submission Folder will stay together with the new Submission Folder.
