    We want to use Jotform for our application forms, so that we can have clients submit their answers and all the documents and images required in one place. We save all our applicant info in folders on google drive, and currently we have clients apply with google forms, and then email us the required documents, and we save those documents directly from the email to google drive. We would like to consolidate this process using Jotform, but as far as I can discern, this would be easier for our applicants, but would actually create an extra step for us. We would have the link in a Sheets document on the drive from their application, but then we would have to first save the document to our computer and then upload it to the drive. Is there a way to save it directly to the drive that I am not yet finding? Thank you!

    Hello,

    You can have the uploaded files uploaded into Google Drive after the submissions automatically using JotForm's Google Drive integration.

    Here is a guide on integrating your form with Google Drive:

    https://www.jotform.com/help/192-How-to-Integrate-a-Form-with-Google-Drive

    After integrating your form, please send a test submission, you will see the uploaded files on the folder that is created after submission.

    Here, I created a form and integrated it with Google Drive. You can send a test submission and see the files on the drive. I shared the drive folder for you to inspect it on your side.

    I hope this answer helps. Please don't hesitate to contact us for your further queries.

     

    All the best!

    Thank you SO much for your quick and detailed response!! We were about to
    use some other service, but now it looks like we will use JotForm for our
    applications!
