    Hello,

    You can choose the name of the folder integrated into your Google Drive. Firstly, you must remove current Google Drive integration. Then, after you authenticate your account, you can edit Name of the folder. You can choose the name to another field or more than one field. As you can see below video:

    Also, to change the submission folder name in Google drive, check step #4 in the guide: How-to-Integrate-a-Form-with-Google-Drive

    4. On the next step, you can customize your folder names. Click the "pencil" icon to select the fields as your custom folder name or input your own custom folder name. Click the "Apply" button to save the selections.

    I hope it helps. Please let us know if you need any further assistance.

    Since you are choosing a field on the form as a folder, it creates a new folder in the Google Drive when the data of the mapping field is received with different data. If you want all the submissions received to be stored in the same folder, you may enter Static text instead of selecting a field in the integration wizard.

    Please give it a try and let us know if you need any further assistance. We will be happy to assist.
