    Bypass JotForm and upload files directly to Box, Google Drive, Dropbox, private server, etc?

    Asked by jotters on July 01, 2017 at 10:05 AM

    Is it possible to upload files directly to a final repository such as Box, Google Drive, Dropbox, our private server without having this data transfer to JotForm? We would like to have the URL in the JotForm database be the final destination. We would like to work only with the final destination. We do not want to use JotForm as an archive for uploaded files.

    For clarification, having the JotForm data in the JotForm database is not an issue.

    Unfortunately, all form submissions will go to our servers first. After that, it will be forwarded to the 3rd party integrated application like Google Drive or Dropbox. Please take note that we do have integration with Google Drive, Dropbox, and Box.


    I recommend you use the Auto-Delete submission app. This app deletes new form submissions instantly as soon as they are received. It uses JotForm webhooks so it is almost instant. Here's the link: https://apps.jotform.com/app/auto_delete_submissions.

    Hope that helps. If you have any questions, let us know. Thank you.
