Upload files to Dropbox/GoogleDrive/etc without uploading to JotForm?

    As best as I can tell, all the upload features/widgets store uploaded data in their own storage, even though the target may be a different cloud store. Is there a way to upload directly to our cloud store without having to save the same data elsewhere?

    And, no, we don't want to delete the submissions, we would like to keep the metadata in JotForm.

    Unforutnately, it is not possible to upload the files directly to DropBox/Google Drive or any integrated cloud storage directly. The files uploaded will be first uploaded to JotForm and then sent to the connected cloud storage.

    Is this true when utilizing all the upload widgets such as https://transloadit.com ? Meaning, for example, does the transloadit widget upload the file to jotform and then forward it to transloadit?

    Yes. All Upload fields and widgets will always add first a copy of the uploaded file to JotForm.
